Women Take Too Long to Get Ready?

The second biggest pet peeve of mine is being late for any/everything. But some people, it seems like, do need more time to get ready than others. More patience is required by those who get to 'see and be seen' in a shorter amount of time. Hence this article on the Telegraph was bound to be featured here as well.
A bit says:
"Women spend 3,276 hours getting ready
Women spend 136 days of their lives getting ready for a night out - enough time for an astronaut to fly to the moon and back 22 times."
Any strong feelings on the matter?

On the other hand, many of my male friends take longer getting ready....
At least much longer than me.

must agree with Gina. My ex used to take twice as long getting ready as I !!!

If you have longer hair and wear makeup, it will usually take you longer to get ready for the day. It probably shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes, though.

I was always annoyed by girls who need three hours in front of a mirror in order to get ready for a night out.

wow. when you see all of these hours in one go, it's tough not to come to terms with narcissism.

And to think of all the stuff one could do during that time. But then much of that stuff couldn't get done well if one looked like a yeti.... Such a vicious circle.
Why do I like short hair? Ready to hit the road in under 15 minutes.....
