According to a new survey from Epson Canada, 60% of Canadian professionals have taken a business call in the bathroom. The details of this statistic we don't want to know. The same survey also says that 7% of us have taken a business call at a funeral or wedding, and 29% of us have taken work-related calls from bed.
