We’ve all been thinking it, but now it’s been proven – men are escaping to the bathroom to get away from us, and their children, and not to actually use the toilet.
A third of men surveyed as part of a British study admitted that they use the bathroom to hide out, get some peace and quiet when they’re being nagged by their partner and to avoid their kids.
Like we didn’t already know!
The poll of 1000 men, conducted by ‘bathroom experts’ Pebble Grey, found that on average they spend seven hours a year in the bathroom, just to get away from their partners and kids!
“We all need a little bit of time to ourselves – to take stock or switch off completely,” Pebble Grey Director, Helena Linsky said
“And the bathroom appears to be the go-to place for those moments – it’s very much a sanctuary, somewhere we can cut ourselves off from the outside world, albeit just temporarily. As the results suggest, peace and quiet are considered sacred and clearly men take the opportunity to get this where they can – often in the bathroom.”
A quarter of the men surveyed said they didn’t know how they’d cope if they couldn’t escape to the bathroom. A third of them said going to the bathroom is the only way they get time to themselves.
And 23% described the bathroom as their ‘safe place’.
