Does anyone have a friend that takes hours and hours to get ready?
I love this girl. She's wonderful in every way except her timing when primping to go somewhere. Seriously, she doesn't look much better after all that, then she did when she started. I think there must be some type of disorder...and it seems like she gets so distracted while trying to rush. Could this be ADD?
We've gotten into a couple of harsh arguements over this and didn't speak for a while. I don't want to do this again, so I just don't wait for her anymore, but she's one of my best friends.
I can take long myself, but don't think I've EVER taken longer than 3 hours. That was bad for me. Sometimes I can be ready in an hour if the hair is being good.
I've watched her from start to finish many times. It goes something like this.
Bath, then eventually shower - shaves then showers and washes hair about 1 hour.
Lotions entire body - including finding the type lotion out of about 20 bottles and does the process - 30 minutes
The outfit - OMG - that can already be decided, but for some reason will always change. Her bed will have 20 - 30 pieces of items tried on, and she goes to the mirror 100 times examining. 1 1/2 hours
The shoes - About 20 minutes.
The makeup - 1 hour
The hair 1 hour
The purse - 20 minutes
The jewelry - about 30 minutes.
The above listed is about 5 ridiculous hours. That doesn't even include the interrupting phone calls or her employees dropping in for business reasons causing another couple of hours distraction.
Anyway, I guess what I'm asking is, is there a cure for this? I've love to meet my friend out sometime earlier than 11:30 at night. By that time, everything's about over for me.
I don't think this is fixable. Do you? I think one of the rudest things someone can do is to make them wait for you. If you're not ready, then no longer than 30 minutes is exceptable in my opinon.
I'd just like to hear ideas on what people have tried to help someone like this with, or did it just make things worse?
