Today, it's been two weeks since my parents went crazy with their attempts to save on the water bill. Every time I want to take a shower, I have to ask them first. Let's just say I've had to resort to taking sponge baths in public bathrooms to keep my B.O. under control. FML

Offer to shower with your parents! Statistics show that sharing shower time greatly decreases water usage! I'm sure they'll appreciate how helpful you're being. Then they'll leave your ass alone.

I think his parents are being mental. I understand wanting to cut out bills, but there has to be other things you could do without first? My parents went through some hard times and there were times when we had to cut out the treats to meet out needs. We cut junk food, cable, and cereal first before we cut the water.

How do we know that op isn't already using deodorant? Deodorant will only go so far. If you wear deodorant every day but don't shower, then it isn't going to work very well.

"Ooh, that smell
Can't you smell that smell?
Ooh, that smell
The smell of death surrounds you"

**The first and only time I watched the show "Extreme Cheapskate", there was a family of 4 that ALL shared the same bathtub water. By the time the last person bathed, the tub water was black. Let's hope the OP's parents don't get pointers from that show. I was so grossed out!
