You Must Be This Tall To Take A Shower

I was in the shower, ready to shave. I turned to face the shower head and bent over to pick up the can of shaving cream that was on the corner of the tub against the wall....

...and BANG!

My forehead went against the soap dish holder thingy.

"Damn, how low was she bending" you ask?

Not very fricken low!

I am 5'6. The soap dish was level with my chin. Close to the front of the shower.

Who in hell decided that this soap dish should go here. There was another one, on the other end of the shower, toward the bottom of the wall...where it belongs!

I don't care who you are...this has to be dangerous. Dangerous for anyone taller than the soap dish!

So what would have happened if I would have bent down fast enough to knock myself out?

I have this huge ass bruise/knot on the top of my forehead where my hairline starts. I'm hoping it's hidden by my hair and some well placed make-up. Otherwise I'm going to look like a moron tomorrow!

Well... I'm just picturing you telling people you got the bruise from bonking your head on a soap dish... ;-)

Me, I'm lucky. I get to blame my bumps & bruises on my wife.

And with her arms, everyone's going to believe me, too :-)

Welcome to my world........For me it's usually the shower head.

BTW - I thought this was gonna be a way different post.....remember my little saying "You must be this tall to ride the ride". ;-)

I stayed in 4 different hotels about 6 times over the past month, and all of them had the same hi/lo soap dish thing going.

What's up with that?

I'm with Tammi (not in THAT way, Harvey) -- try being over six feet tall. Nearly every shower head ever made is too low for me.

Obviously they are designed by MEN who are 6 feet tall.

Yeowch! I've hit my head getting into my car now and then - takes a special grace to hurt ourselves in new and interesting ways, doesn't it?
