Sure, it might not be required that you reply to the boss's emailed question instead of having sex with your partner. But if you don't do it, you'll be distracted the whole time. Before you know it, you're carrying around the office in your pocket, everywhere you go. So now, when there is a disaster at work, that disaster shows up right there at your son's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's.
The survey showed that for women, the news was double bad. Not only were they inclined to use the cellphone to transfer work problems to home, but also the phone was the method of bringing home problems into the office.

And if you've ever worked with someone struggling with personal problems from a cubicle, you know it's not pretty.

The "Be Grateful I'm Not Asking You to Get Me Another Beer" app.
And a staggering 33 percent of people would rather give up sex than give up their cellphone.
Yeah, let that sink in. All these health problems the phones may or may not cause? They better find a way to fix it, because we're damned well not going to give up our phones.
