A new survey reveals that most mobile phone users don't let a little thing like going to the bathroom get in the way of texting, talking or browsing the web.
About 1,000 people were polled by marketing agency 11mark, as reported by The New York Times. 75 percent of them confess to using their phones while on the toilet. People ages 28 to 35 are the most attached to their devices, with 91 percent saying they still talk and text while doing their business. 16 percent of that age group also confess to making online purchases during their alone time.
The data may suggest that this isn't just some coincidence -- these people don't just happen to get phone calls while they're in the bathroom. Instead, it's become part of their routine. In fact, 25 percent of people say they simply won't go without their phones.
Here are some more of the dirty, grimy statistics.
-- 63 percent have answered calls on the toilet.
-- 41 percent have made calls while indisposed.
-- 20 percent of men say they have joined a conference call from the John.
-- 13 percent of women have also jumped onto a group call from the little girl's room.
