How long should a shower be?

My gas bill just came, and I’m losing.  So, I checked with my daughter who is 14 almost 15.  How long is your shower?  She answered with her long blond silky hair, and pink blushed lips, “About 20 minutes.”

So, after I picked my face off the floor, I told her about the time, my other 15 year old who is now 28 went in to take a shower, and I went to the store, shopped, stood in line, and drove back home.  The trip was about 20 minutes without shopping just drive time, and she was still in the shower. 

Now, I know, where my money goes.


What is reasonable?  I take a 5 to 6 minute shower and if I feel like maybe taking a minute more I might.  Help!
