42% of Americans Use Their Cell Phones in the Bathroom
iGR, a market consultant firm, recently polled 1,000 mobile phone users, ages 18 to 65, and discovered that 42-percent of them claim to make calls and send text messages while in the bathroom. The age group most likely to be a public nuisance? Surprise, it's 18-to-24-year-olds.
Youngsters lead the way in all statistics in the poll, including talking or texting in restaurants, and 18-to-24-year-old women are slightly more prone to public chattering than their male counterparts.
If you old fogies despise this behavior, or if you carefree whippersnappers condone it, check out these street interviews and let us know what you think. Until then, if you leave your phone at home on a night out, be very careful whose you choose to borrow. [From: iGR, Via: VPO]
