British women prefer the cold comfort of their fridges and freezers than that of their partners, according to a new survey commissioned by appliance repair network Go Assist.
Some 25% of females admit to heading straight to their refrigerators when they feel sad, claiming they feel more comforted by the contents than by the support of their significant other.
Matching up the data reveals that British women touch their fridge door handles at least 49 times more per week than they touch the hands of their lover.
The research also revealed that 24% of us open our fridge an average of 10 times a day, while 7% of us open it over 21 times a day. That may not be so surprising when you consider the UK is a nation of tea drinkers. Go Assist managing director Richard Waters said “Our Bournemouth office goes through a total of 2,160 pints of milk per year. As you can imagine, that’s a lot of visits to the fridge!”
