News, but not the serious kind
Get my cell phone, Hon, it’s in the toilet…
Blog Guy, like most of your readers, I come here for news about toilets, which you cover better than anybody else. I was wondering, are women’s bathroom habits any different from men’s, apart from the obvious?
It turns out the most commonly dropped item is the cell phone, which gives me an idea for a million dollar app – a smart phone that automatically switches to Speaker Mode when submerged.
The survey found on average an item has to cost at least $75 before a woman will fish it out of the toilet. Fully 16 percent said that NO item was worth going after in the toilet. My own guess is, when that Xanax bottle drops, you’re going to see some fast splashing.
A substantial number of women say they always turn on the exhaust fan, even in their own home, which is probably the last sound you want to hear when you’re talking to them on the phone. Well, maybe the second-to-the-last sound.
Don’t men do that?
Nah, if it’s that gross, we just won’t flush.
Asked to name the most essential item for the bathroom, 78 percent said toilet paper, which was far, far more than any other item.
That IS interesting, Blog Guy. By the way, who sponsored this survey?
Oh, it was the Quilted Northern toilet paper people. Why do you ask?
