#28 Don’t pee in the shower

Listen, if she doesn’t mind you peeing in the shower, sure go ahead. Write your name on the wall. I’m only talking about if she doesn’t want you to but you do anyway because you think she won’t know.

Well let me tell you something. It doesn’t matter how much you follow it down with shampoo. Women can smell that shit. They have a higher sense of smell than we do. But this is not about odor. It’s about trust, the act of doing something behind their back is what this is really about.

Here’s the thing. If you lie about peeing in the shower and they know you’re lying or suspect it, chances are you are lying about other things. Maybe not big things. But lies don’t have to be big to crack trust. Peeing in the shower is one of those “what else” behaviors. If he’s doing this, what else is he doing? Are you feeding the dog under the table? Listening to music while riding your motorcycle? Flirting with the babysitter? Now you’ve opened a can of worms. Peeing in the shower isn’t about peeing in the shower. It’s about white lies and the way they can slowly disintegrate trust and eventually relationships.

Boys think they can get away with things.

Men just don’t do it.
