In a study that half of the office believes to be a complete farce, Sky Broadband have released the findings of a recent survey which places Irish males as the most unworthy sex in the country.
Being second on a list of two isn’t exactly a prestigious accolade, but considering some of the fields of study, which are age, where we live, and job title, we’ve decided it’s all just a big fix. We’re all twenty-something, professional rugby playing Foxrockians, right?...right?
Now, we’re not sure, but if Sky conducted this survey on a night out, while disguising themselves as an attractive woman, we may have found the reason for these results.
However, after reading a little further, it looks like there might have been a few elements of truth to the survey. Only 50% of men can be relied on to do the ironing, they’re more likely to lie about knowing celebrities, and 27% of them believe their mammies are more trustworthy than their partners. Oh yeah, pick on the mammy’s-boys.
But the women aren’t that innocent either, with 48% lying about their weight, 34% having lied to their partner, and 49% have at some point re-gifting presents they received.
Somewhere among all the all the data, we see that men are twice as likely to forget about Valentine’s Day than women, and 5% of people think their dog is more reliable than their boss.
That last one may seem out of place, but considering Indiana Jones is deemed more trustworthy to save your life than Toy Story’s Woody, Harry Potter, and Frodo Baggins all combined, we’ll leave it in there.
And all this comes about despite over 80% of each sex claiming reliability is more important that good-looks, cooking ability, and DIY skills.
Now we know someone’s lying. Here love, get back in that kitchen and make me a shelf.
