The beauty label Nephria commissioned a poll which showed men were left hanging around for an average of 17 minutes each time they went out with their partner. It was an average of one hour and two minutes waiting in shops.
Women spend up to 2 years and nine months over a lifetime to get ready for work, or go on a big night out. The poll gets right down to the nitty-gritty showing that women typically spend 22 minutes showering and shaving their legs, seven minutes moisturising or applying fake tan, 23 minutes on their hair, 14 minutes on make-up and six minutes getting dressed.
Most men say they get fed up waiting - and one in 10 has even ended a relationship because of it.
Women spend a lifetime waiting for men to put the toilet seat down. How many minutes do we wait until the last goal is kicked before we get taken out? How much time do we waste putting on an oxygen mask before the male gets the hint and uses deodorant? How many hours do we waste before he admits defeat and stops to ask for directions? How many eye-rolls can we get to the second before he realises that we don't care about the 44DD serving behind the bar?
Toughen up guys, patience is a virtue and while virtue is its own reward, you still have to wait for sex if we have a headache.
