  • After work shower - arvo or night?

    When I worked FIFO on the mines there wasn't a chance in hell I didn't have a shower the second I got back to my room after work. For a start, most sites I worked at were hot and dusty and nearly all sites have a rule that you can't rock up to the mess dirty.
    But... since starting work in the city in an office job, I've found I prefer to shower later at the night rather than as soon as I get home. I'd rather flick on the news, have a beer and chill for a while these days.

    So, it got me wondering, what do others prefer and why?

    It depends on what im doing...
    If its just a long day at uni or something, then i can wait till whenever to shower...
    Usually when i get home from the Bar, i crash in bed (Seein as its like 5 in the mor), then get up and shower in the morning!
    When i worked at the paintball, I'd walk through the door and jump in the shower straight away...
    Preference? None really... Showers a shower! All depends on how dirty i feel and how quick i wana feel clean again!

      I really should shower after work, but i usually get home at 6am or so, so its straight to bed for me.

          If you're not getting that dirty during the day, there's nothing like hitting the sheets fresh out of the shower. Also - I'm lazy. Going to bed clean means the sheets last longer between washes

          But if I've been diving or getting dirty in the shed or yard, I'll shower before settling into "inside" time of an evening.

          Hornet - what about if you're heading out? Shower, shit and shave before you leave for the night, or do you wait until you get home?

            Depends what I'm doing.

            If I'm out on site (very rare these days) I'll shower asap. Unless the weather is utter shit, in which case I'll eat, then shower. It's a real chore getting from the room to the mess without getting fucked up in bad weather.

            Shower after training and right before hitting bed, unless I've gotten dirty at work. Sitting in the office isn't too taxing on the ol' body.

              Just depends, when I was working in the building industry I would usually come home and relax for a while (have a cool drink/beer etc) much to the missus annoyance unless absolutely covered in crap :o

              These days working 12 hr shifts at the Prison it depends on the shift, on days I will usually wait till later to have one unless it's the middle of summer
              After a NS a lot of times I will crawl straight into bed and go to sleep unless I have to do something like take my 6 yr old to school or again if it's the middle of summer and I'm all sweaty

                  I worked fifo but i did IT (mostly office-ish stuff) so i'd have a shower when i got back to my room, after the trip to the mess/pub. i.e. before bed.


                  unless i've had an unusually strenuous day, this is what i do, rather than as soon as i get home. i guess it depends on how much physical work you do (as opposed to mental).

You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                      Yeh dude know the feeling. Last time I came home from bartending and had a shower, I fell asleep in the shower.

                      So straight to bed for me also.

                        usually playing some sort of sport after work, so sweat it out there (with a nice iron ore tan), then shower before bed.

                        Having a warm shower helps you sleep better too, as a dropping body temp makes you sleepy.

                            Generally shower before i go to bed, if i go to bed. If i dont go to bed i will have one before going back to work, or if i have a really 'messy' night at work then first thing in the morning when i get home (ie anytime between 9am and 7pm )
