    30 minutes to ****, shower and shave. That said I like to give myself an hour so I can get mail and forums read before I head out the door.

    My day is pretty hectic, an hour in the morning to enjoy a light workout, breakfast and coffee, is a good way to start the day.

    Nowhere to go so I get up just to take the dog out. Otherwise I would probably not get up before 9 or 10. Twenty years end of watch this Dec. 1.
    When I was working, up at 6, and making my breakfast, getting ready to go, watching a little news usually took an hour and a half. My office was about 3 miles away, so no hurry.

    Need? None really, if I skip the shower. Budgeted? 30 minutes. Actually take? 20 minutes or so. Gear for the day is packed the night before.

    45 minutes to an hour. Depends on how well the makeup and hair go. The last thing I do before out the door is feed the animals. I'm always at my desk by 7:00 AM, although I don't know why since work doesn't officially start until 8.

    Rolled out of the recliner at 5:15, was in the SUV at 5:30, and traversed 3 counties in the rain on major interstates sans coffee all to take one of our guys for a COVID test since it is a requirement on a deal we are working on. That is why I get paid the big bucks to help mitigate the risks.
    My day was done at 8a today. Stopped at Starbucks before heading home and going back to sleep.

    Depends. If I'm going to work, about an hour and a half to brush my teeth, shower, brush my hair and put it in a ponytail, throw on some jeans, and grab some breakfast.

    If I'm going out somewhere, it's more like two and a half hours because then I have to do my hair and makeup.


    I always show up for work an hour early too.

    I can be up shower, shave, dressed, and out the door in 15 to 20 minutes. I prefer to have an hour to an hour and 15 minutes to get a cup of coffee, fix a small breakfast, and not be in a rush.

    45 minutes. That includes the three S’s, getting dressed, making breakfast, eating breakfast, checking run stats and reports from overnight, feeding the dogs and getting them out, and patting the wife on her butt as I leave.

    When I was working, about 25 minutes, could do faster if I needed to.
    Retired now, don't get moving for at least a couple of hours.

    Lot of poop talk in this thread. Not complaining, I enjoy a good am bm as much as the next guy.
    Takes me about 30 minutes to get freakin sexy.

    I do everything the night before because I just can't move in the morning. So it's usually wake up late, scream "oh sh*t", throw on my uniform, grab my stuff, crack a monster and fly at the door by 5am.
