42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower - 7 Percent Never Bathe

PISCATAWAY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash) -- Urine trouble now. According to a new survey, at least four out of every 10 Americans pee while taking a shower.

According to a shower survey sponsored by VertiSpa, 42 percent urinate while bathing, certainly pissing off the 58 percent who don't.

That's not the only stat splashed from the shower study. The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water.

-- 52 percent of Americans sing in the shower, with "Singin' In The Rain" being the top tune.

-- 53 percent of people shower in the morning, while 29 percent wait until evening.

-- Finally, the scariest stat of all: 7 percent of Americans claim they never bathe at all.

" if you are lost in the woods and something needs to be flushed out of your eye, urine is the best thing. "

Wow--sure'd like to meet the guy who could do that!

"Unless you have physical problems you can hold it a minute or two."

But why bother? It's just urine, which is fairly harmless, and I'm standing right over the drain, so down it goes.

42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower

I had a huge fight with my girlfriend about eight years ago (and eventually broke up) because I insisted that everyone has peed in the shower at some point in their life.

She went eewwww!, and insisted that she never, ever peed in the shower or bath, even as a kid.

At the time, we were laughing it up at a party and having a few brews and one by one, everyone admitted (even the girls) that yes, they too had peed in the shower, even if only once.

But my girlfriend, as the night went on, got madder and madder when some people kept insisting that everyone has peed in the shower, and those who deny it are just lying.

To make a long story short, she got really ticked off at me for bringing up the subject, and we ended up breaking up about a week later.

I'm sure michael moore falls into the 7%. At 350+ lbs, he probably cannot find a bathtub or shower large enough to fit into.

Heh...when Michael Moore goes to the carwash, it ain't to wash his car, pal.

At least 98% of the French pee while in the tub

I used to have a employee who would go to the gym everyday at lunch time, his name was Punch Boy and he did a whole lot more and made a gooey mess every single day.
They finally had to ban him after the towel lady had a huge fit.

My parents took my son to the zoo a few weeks back.

They saw an orangutan stand on his head and pee in his own mouth.

Uh, no. Just because YOU pee in the shower does not mean that you are in the vast majority.

Those stats have to be wrong. There's got to be more than 7% who are democrats.

I'd always been told, and read, that a drawn bath used more water than a shower. Methinks these stats are offbase.

Test it by taking your normal shower with the drain plugged, and see how full the tub is when you're done.
