"Talk for Britain" — and indeed they do
Last week, we announced this Talk for Britain campaign for the UK. In short, buy £10 of Skype Credit before the end of the year, and get free calls to UK landlines for the 6 months after your purchase.
Now… what we also did in connection with this campaign was a survey of the Brits’ talking habits. See the full release. Some highlights below are pretty… er… interesting. Then again, I’m not sure that the results would be so different if we did this in any other country. I’ve been on the phone from all sorts of funny places too, but toilet… hmm.
According to the research, almost three quarters of respondents admitted talking to friends and family while on the toilet and 17 percent have actually fallen asleep while chatting on the phone to someone else.
The research revealed that respondents admitted that their worst phone nightmare was being told what they did the night before because they were too drunk to remember. Also, it appears that women like chatting on the phone while soaking in the bath and almost a quarter said that they had been caught talking to someone they shouldn’t have.
So really. Go talk for Britain.
