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.
"who is to say it's wasted?"
Make that 'unnecessary'.
I certainly have no issues with anyone paying for whatever they want to pay for, but for me, a 50-gallon shower is extremely excessive.
I seem to remember that Cramer had a garbage disposal in his shower, so that he could cook while he took a shower!!
"How exactly does one "waste" water?"
By pissing it away?
No, you're right - I changed it to 'personally unnecesary', meaning I don't care what other people do with their showering habits.
7%, hey? They must be the ones that go to anti-Bush marches and watch Farce-n-Hype 9/11.
And come in my store afterwards.
Yep, gourmet food and all!
New headline: 49% Of Americans Are Hideously Disgusting
Sorry, I think the number is more like 95% (men and women & I should know, I am a woman who pees in her own shower, but never, ever in someone else's), the 5% who don't are rather anal (or unrinal?) about bodily functions.
So now when someone posts on a thread about it being time to take a shower, we'll have a pretty good idea what's really going on. LOL.
thanks..great piece/post! :))
But the water will turn purple!!! [Universal parent lie--used it many times myself]
We have a guy where I work who is so rank, that when I walk into the sales office where he works, I am hit with his stench. I had heard about him before I met him, but that did not even come close to the reality of smelling him. I honestly don't know how the office gals can stand to be near him.
Did they ask how many Americans swim in the toilet?
There's actually shower-peeing etiquette. For example, if you're a guy, you should aim directly at the drain and try to avoid hitting the edges, thereby minimizing the splatter effect.
If any evidence remains, you can be assured the average housewife will spot it a mile away. God knows they have an almost psychic ability to spot a stray hair on the shower floor or bar of soap.
For the particularly unscrupulous on the outs with their spouse, their scrubbing poof can be used as either a clean-up accoutrement, or a receptacle, depending on how unpleasant the preceding night's disagreement was.
You Are Not Alone.
Wear your clothes while showering.
"Once you drill the Kalifornia Water Nazi restrictor plug outta the back of the shower head, it will flow plenty of water."
Once you adjust the Ralph Nader safety shower valve, you won't have to have the water heater cranked up to 150 degrees just to get decent water temperature out of the shower head.
Seriously, who came up with that moronic idea? Supposedly it was to keep people from scalding themselves in the shower, but most people have NO idea how to adjust it for the seasonal variations in cold water temperature, so they crank up the water heater instead -- creating a risk of scalding at every other faucet in the house.
