Well though it may sound a little gross or dirty but recently a lot of people have taken upto this habit, thanks to the smartphone invasion in our lives. And it's not a new notion of having a source of entertainment or alternate activity to do in the toilet.
Basically mobile phones have now replaced Magazines and newspapers. So whether it is harmful (read: Germful) or risky but here is a list of things that people do with their cell phones in the loo.
No more Boredom
Well, there is clearly nothing else to do, so it kind of justifies if you take your better half (Cell phone) with you inside.
Privacy & Privacy only!
It's just you and your cell phone and on one else to disturb or peek into your privacy, so now you can have that little chat uninterrupted.
Sometimes your work can follow you everywhere and I mean literally everywhere. So people have to check mails or sometimes even attend calls in the loo.
Breaking High Scores in Video Games
All your energy, all your focus and all your concentration, you can now break that high score of yours that you made yesterday! Toilets are probably the most peaceful place to play your favourite games.
For people who are workaholic or find that they get more ideas in the loo than in the office, well as far as it gets the work done everything is fair.
'U n I' Always Connected
There are times when you are in a middle of a very interesting debate/ fight going on in one of the Whatsapp groups or are playing 'Clash of Titans' with friends, well that's when people have no option but to carry their phones in the loo.
Maybe doing one thing at a time is not your thing so you might as well take your mobile with you to the loo, even if you don't need it at all.
Parents: You have become addicted to your phone.
Boy: No. Not at all, it's just that I cannot live without it.
No Wet Paper!
Gone are the days of having the difficulty of handling a newspaper or a magazine in the toilet without getting it wet. Just make sure you don't drop your cell into that black hole!
So if you have an OCD about cleanliness, you should stay far away from this habit, but those who do just remember that 'With great power comes great responsibility' (Ofcourse pun intended).
