I work out at the office, in the morning. There's like maybe seven of us regulars who show up around 6:30 a.m. We have communal showers in our change rooms so it's a given that we're going to see ourselves naked, which is fine. However - although I am very comfortable with being naked, so that's not the problem - I have a colleague who insists on carrying on dedicated and comprehensive conversations while we're in the change room, especially when he's coming out of the showers and drying himself with all the subtlety of an bull in a wheat field. That's something I'm not comfortable with. For a while now, I've been timing myself to either finish before him so I can beat him to the showers, or try to tend to other pre-shower grooming until he leaves the shower room, to no avail. The later I walk in after him, the longer his showers, it seems. What do I do?
