A survey found 75% of Australians admitted to using their phones in the the toilet. The poll revealed that most people use their phones on the loo simply because they have nothing better to do. 29% said it was because they "wanted to prevent boredom setting in". 7% said that due to an over hectic schedule the loo was the only place where they could catch up with news and current events. 12% said that they felt pressure to stay on top of emails and messages even while in the bathroom. 20% of the people surveyed admitted to their phones falling into the loo as there was no space to keep their phone while cleaning themselves.
