A survey published by mBlox claims that 14 percent of Parisian women take their cell phones to the tub, compared with only 4 percent of men. It's a junk survey, with only 221 respondents, but that's still a huge gap.
About a third of 18-24 year olds in the roundup said they'd get out the shower for a phone call. Mblox's Christophe Collier portrays it as the spontaneity of a new generation:
“Quite apart from the hygiene and safety issues associated with the practice of interrupting the cleansing routine to take a call or text, these findings do reveal the ease and frequency with which the younger generation exchange information in a way that is genuinely non-planned, spontaneous,” added Collier.
If you leave the charger plugged in, it could Alka Seltzer for a new generation, too. Plop, fizz!
