When it comes to cellphones, men out talk the ladies
concerning bugs, 59% of cockroach calls, 58% of calls related to spiders and 56% regarding termites.
Lastly, it seems that men like to get their business handled early in the day so that they can handle other chores as the day progresses. From 3am to 6am, 6am to 9am and 9am to noon, men were placing more calls than the women. But it is the opposite from noon to 3pm, 3pm to 6pm and 6pm to 9m. From 9pm to midnight, both sexes used their phones equally as much.
This information could be useful for mobile advertising. Knowing that women make the calls 6 out of 10 times when dealing with bugs could lead an exterminator to focus on women with their mobile ads, while bankruptcy attorneys can make their ads as macho as possible.

I was truly surprised when I read the title of the article but then noticed it was for business calls only. If you include personal calls, woman have to be more talkative.

Get a woman angry, and she'll talk business to you like you don't know how to talk business at all. On any other day, it only seems like nonsense because we dudes just don't understand. Besides, we just grunt at each other and STILL understand, half of the time, anyway. Whose talk sounds more like nonsense now?

Thats real surprising, considering most woman simply don't shut up.

Oh please, c'mon! Don't tell me you all haven't ever seen some nasty guy coming out of a bar who won't stop trying to pick up women in the worst ways on his way down the street... cuz those guys don't shut up either. They're worse than any of the ladies could ever be, and much more annoying.

Yeah I'm glad someone said this was for business calls I can see that, but here in America women out talk men about 2 hours at the least lol. Oh well it is what it is.

Hah... who'd have guessed...
And as for the 9pm-midnight calls being equal... well, that's because the men and women talking to each other around then? Idk... who knows... just kidding, I guess!
I do talk to my guy friends a lot, and I really don't have any lady friends who I talk to much... but that's because I don't have any lady friends, at least not any that I want to talk to outside of church, and I always talk to their husbands, who are most of my guy friends, anyway.
