where we do email

saw this over at bob’s blog a while back and have had it saved in my blogline subs for some time now.

aol survey

• In bed in their pajamas: 67%
• From the bathroom: 59%
• While driving: 50%
• In a bar or club: 39%
• In a business meeting: 38%
• During happy hour: 34%
• While on a date: 25%
• From church: 15% (up from 12% last year)

i’ll admit it here: since i do email on my blackberry so often, i have done email in all of these contexts. my bb used to charge, overnight, in the bathroom. but now it’s plugged in on top of my dresser, right next to my head from where our bed is. the result: many mornings, i grab my bb without even rolling out of bed. and the bathroom? what else is one supposed to do whilst sitting around like that? or, whilst standing at a urinal. worse yet: hardly a week goes by that i don’t at least send one email from church (dang, i suck!). as for “while driving”: i’ve really tried to decrease that one.
