Woman's shower habits spark online debates

Woman's shower habits spark online debates

A Twitter user has divided the internet after explaining her shower habit and asking the social media platform if it was "normal".

“Help me settle a debate," Alice wrote to her followers.

“It’s normal to shower with your back to the shower right? Not facing the water?” she asked.

Many were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.

“I face the water to keep my hair from getting wet and then spin round and hold my hair out of the way to do my back,” one person said.

“See I’m not the only one who thinks facing the water is strange,” another added, tagging their friend.

People said that they prefer their back to the water so they don't get hit in the face.

“Aye but you’ve got to at least face the shower at least once to get hit on the face with the water,” one person then demanded.

“I don’t like my face in the water at all, unless I’ve had a terrible day and you do that thing they do in films, where you put your hands on the wall and lean forward with your hair streaming down, like you’ve just blown up an entire planet and need some time to think,” another person joked.

One user was "shocked" to learn that people have their backs to the wall.

“I just assumed EVERYONE faced the water. Back to the shower is for hangover recovery only, usually breathing deeply and steadying yourself against the wall, praying you’re not pushing sick down the plug hole before the time’s up.”

Alice disagreed.

“I always face away from the water,” she said. “You stand underneath the water with your back to the shower head so water runs over you!”
