The Top Five Ways Americans Waste Time Sitting in Traffic

Living in Vancouver is great although as a daily commuter getting to work  &  home every day is a nightmare, traffic is getting crazier and crazier by the day.   There’s a new survey out on American reading habits, and most of the stats look pretty boring.  But there is one that I can’t believe  . . . The average American now spends two hours a day reading . . . but only if you count the stuff we read online.

In other words, reading “Pride and Prejudice” counts as reading . . . but so does scrolling through Wikipedia to find out Brendan Fraser who played in the movie the Mummy and George Of The Jungle has a brother named Kevin. Who Knew!  The best part of the study was buried near the bottom:  2,000 people were asked to name the top ways they WASTE time.  And you might be doing #4 right now . . .

1.  Scrolling through social media.  49% of people said they waste a significant amount of time doing it.

2.  Using apps or games on your phone or tablet, 30%.

3.  Watching TV, 29%.

4.  Sitting in traffic, 28%.

5.  Constantly checking your phone, 26%.
