Men Spend Seven Hours a Year Hiding in the Bathroom

One day, your significant other is going to figure out that you don't REALLY need to sit on the toilet for 45 minutes to get your bowels moving. One sad, sad day.

According to a new survey, the average man spends a total of seven hours a year hiding in the bathroom.

The main reasons are: For some quiet time . . . to get away from their partner nagging them . . . to get a break from their kids . . . to avoid their chores . . . and to use their phone.

The survey also found that about 10% of bathroom trips at home are interrupted by someone barging in.

Unfortunately, the survey didn't ask ladies how often THEY hide out in the bathroom.

It's the First One of the Season: Someone in North Dakota Called 911 Over Early Halloween Decorations

People are starting to put up their Halloween decorations, and you know what that means . . . people confusing them for actual criminal acts and calling the cops. And here's the first one of the season.

A woman named Becky Muhs in West Fargo, North Dakota put up her first Halloween decoration last weekend: She used fake blood to write the words "HELP ME" and a put a handprint on her window.

And you can probably see why that might freak someone out. One, it's still September, so people aren't in the complete Halloween mindset just yet . . . and two, there weren't any inflatable ghosts or anything to give a clue that the message was part of a Halloween display.

And it DID freak someone out. Within a matter of HOURS, one of Becky's neighbors called 911 because they thought somebody inside the house might really need help.

The cops came and they cleared things up, but they aren't making Becky get rid of the message.
