Here is everything you ever wanted to know about using your phone in the restroom: infographic
Cell phones, and particularly smartphones, are such an intimate part of our life, we’d take them with us everywhere - when we’re outside, next to us when we sleep and even in the... restroom.

And what do you know, 75% of us use our dear handsets in the privacy of a restroom. And you know, it’s also more of a man thing.

There is a lot of hilarious facts about phone usage in restrooms, but our favorite one is the fact that 30% of Generation Y wouldn’t go to the bathroom without their device. Check them all out below and let us know whether you have the same problem, and which observation is your favorite.

Actually, I'm pretty sure the stats are worse than that. Hubby told me about a father and small son that came into the men's room and used the urinals. Son reminded dad they should wash their hands but the dad replied that they hadn't "used the toilet".

I also know a nurse who was outraged at the stats that were collected by stationing someone in the rest room to record the numbers - and this at a medical conference.

Remember this the next time someone wants to lend you their phone or anything else, for that matter.

My roommate from last year was one of the 8%. After taking dumps he didn't wash his hands. I confronted him about it and he said he uses enough toilet paper where he doesn't need to. Pretty disgusting that some people don't wash their hands.

There is a difference between using the phone in the bathroom, and using it in the stall. Or what are YOU fantasizing about?

14% wash their phone?
What the...?? Was there no toilet paper?
That must be the reason why 1 in 6 person has feces smeared on their phone...ugghhhh.
And we think animals are disgusting.

Wenda, Wenda...you alone cannot constitute the whole 14%, hence i'm going to ignore it.
But if chose not to, i'm going to think you got feces on your phone. And since you're an Apple lover, i get it that you have an iPhone with your shi¿ smeared all over...so hypothetically, you have an iShi¿ :D
