It Takes British Women 76 Minutes To Get Ready For Work

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"British women take four times as long to get ready for work on Mondays than on Fridays, while men also put less effort into their appearance as the week goes on, according to research by retail chain Debenhams.

ladyOn average, women spend 76 minutes getting ready on Mondays -- with almost a third of that spent on their hair -- 18 minutes on make-up, 16 minutes trying on different combinations of clothes and the rest taken up by showering and washing.

This is reduced to 40 minutes on Tuesdays and continues to decline as the week goes on, falling to 19 minutes on Fridays."

I can`t imagine wasting 76 minutes to get ready for work. It doesn`t take me more than 20 minutes to get ready for work, and that includes eating a quick breakfast.

Even when there was a temp worker that I had a fling with, it didn`t take me more than 20 minutes to get ready to face the day. I just woke up 20 seconds earlier to allow me enough time to splash on some cologne.

It`s hard to believe women spend 76 minutes getting ready for work on Mondays, that`s more time that many ladies spend doing actual work on a typical day.

Dudes also relax their standards with each passing day, no wonder everyone looks and smells like a hobo on Fridays.
