British Men Are Officially Lazy Slobs
Survey reveals bad habits as men “simply can’t be bothered”
Four men out of five admit that they often wear the same pair of underwear two days in a row, a survey on Britain men’s bad habits has revealed.
The results showed a litany of shocking behaviour from both single men and men living with a partner, including a lack of both personal and domestic cleanliness.
Among the survey results published by Socked.co.uk, the sock subscription company, are British men who say they rarely do any domestic cleaning, and a worrying percentage who say they have never cleaned a bathroom in their lives.
“We’re all well aware that men have been letting standards slip over recent years,” said Mark Hall, gentleman creation officer at Socked.co.uk, “but these figures just go to show how far we as a nation have let ourselves go where men simply can’t be bothered.
“And it’s a terrible slippery slope,” said Hall, “Once men stop caring for themselves and their immediate surroundings, they also stop caring for those around them.”
The Socked.co.uk Men’s Personal Habits Survey showed:
80% – Admitted wearing the same pair of underpants for at least two days in a row
76% – Admitted wearing the same pair of socks for at least four days in a row
74% – Never polish their shoes, or routinely wear shoes that do not need polishing
71% – Have eaten dinner straight out of the tin on more than one occasion
67% – Can’t remember the last time they changed the sheets on their bed
62% – Apart from the interview, have never worn a suit to work
57% – Will fish a dirty plate out of the washing-up if there’s nothing clean
44% – Would eat the remains of the previous night’s takeaway for breakfast
34% – Have never done any housework
21% – Have never cleaned the bathroom or toilet
17% – Have never emptied the kitchen bin
“We’re all guilty of at least one of these,” said Socked.co.uk ‘s Mark Hall, “But once this sort of behaviour becomes habit right across the country, the male race is in real trouble.”
“We see it as our job at Socked to help put an end to this decline, one pair of fresh clean socks at a time, if need be.”
