I've definitely heard comments out in the hall about the, um, "European" lady in room 203

But noticing or commenting doesn't mean anybody cares whether you shave or not. BTW--having dirty feet or funky "stuff" is what's disgusting for healthcare personnel.

(I shave because I wear shorts year-round)
Let me clarify, I'm older and have shaved my legs regularly for eons. So now my legs get only a little hairy even if I let them go for a month or two and it is not very dark in color. It has been my observation with friends and acquaintances of European nations who have emigrated, whether recently or not, that they have never shaved their legs or armpits because that is their culture and the hair is very dark. It is somewhat disconcerting to me but I have a respect for tradition. I would think that anyone in the medical profession would have had some kind of cultural sensitivity training and not have a comment like "European lady in room 203". I do agree however that your feet being dirty or other "funky" stuff is going on, then that can be disgusting unless it is a product of your injury, but you all wear gloves for a reason.Of course the patient may be indigent, mentally impaired, homeless or a myriad of other things and can be excused for their bodily condition.

He, as much as you might like to think that being employed in the medical field goes hand in hand with being polite, culturally sensitive, nonjudgmental, etc., it's not necessarily the case.

Every day. I don't always do a thorough job, but I at least run a razor over my legs in the shower.

Isn't this no-shave November for men or something? I forget the name.

A girlfriend jokingly suggested that we join them men for no shaving, so I agreed.

We are ringing in November Sasquatch style!

(I draw the line at the "bikini zone" though - gotta keep that maintenance up )

I am single, and not interested in dating right now. She is dating. I figure this is relevant .

So, what do you all do?
Like once a month, when my pants start pulling the leg hair, making it hurt. Wish I had the guts to just stop shaving all together -- the hair usually softens after a while, from what I've read.

Yes, it gets soft and downy once all the hairs that were cut when you last shaved fall out and new ones grow in. But that takes a long time, at least for me. Maybe 6 months?
