Operating while working: Elon Musk’s toilet humour about phone booths is humorous, but accurate

Elon Musk, known as among the most ruthless giants on X, shares a few of the very best memes on the platform. Generally though, these memes, hit closer to home than one would desire. Case in point would be among his most recent memes, on phone booths

Elon Musk, the crown prince of Meme City on X, is back at it once again. Typically thought about to be among the world’s most ruthless (and richest) trolls, Elon Musk’s memes have constantly had the propensity to either crack people up with laughter, or make them pop a vein or have an aneurism from an outrage.

Just recently, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO and owner of X took to Twitter to share a precisely real meme.

The meme shows the two type of “phonebooths.” One was a classic and an actual booth, a glass-enclosed space, with a telephone, that allowed individuals to place a call.

The other, the restrooms in our homes or offices where people sit on their porcelain throne, often in deep thought, doomscrolling past one post after the other.

As humorous as this sounds, there is some unfortunate reality to it, which can be somewhat harmful to one’s health too.

Vioguard Inc., a leader in UV-C technology, released a customer study report clarifying the potential health threats connected with mobile phone use and insufficient sanitization practices. The survey, that included over 1,100 participants, aimed to comprehend mobile phone users’ routines, cleaning up practices, and their awareness of bacteria and virus transfer through phone contact.

Key findings from the survey consist of:

Toilet Usage: A substantial majority (73 percent) of respondents admitted to utilizing their phones in the toilet, despite age or gender. Among younger participants (ages 18-29), 93 per cent acknowledged utilizing their phones in the toilet.

Cleaning Up Habits: One-third of the participants confessed to never ever cleaning their phones, and 75 percent confessed to cleaning them less than when each day. Less than half of those who did clean their phones used chemical wipe products, while others utilized fabrics, shirtsleeves, or pant-legs.

Perceived Risk: Over 87 percent of respondents agreed that air-borne infections and bacteria can survive on surfaces, and nearly 90 percent believed that touching unclean surface areas, consisting of cellular phone, could cause infections.

Mark Beeston, Vice President of Sales at Vioguard, emphasizes that while consumers acknowledge the possible health threats associated with unclean phones, they take limited precautions to effectively sanitize them. Beeston highlighted the significance of informing the general public about phone tidiness and promoting efficient cleaning techniques, such as UV-light, to minimize bacterial and viral transmission.
