I don't even take my phone INTO the toilet unless it's a public toilet. Too many cases of drowned phones. Of course the few times it has happened I fobbed it off as being poolside and somebody just did a bellyflop off the board!

I can see not why Singaporean TFR is so low. They probably are tweeting when having sex as well.

I think you are not having sex,that's why you are saying this to spite us.
TFR is low because we work hard very hard, not like you.

Then it's time to stop and smell the roses. :cool:

Anyway, I must have worked pretty hard to survive here for 30+ years in the working world. AND to have produced two, now adult, offspring as well. Now you know why you all need FTs. :cool:

Well, kudos to your "hard"work in your production and contribution to Singapore.We locals will remember and use it to our utmost advantage.

Work smarter, not harder.

Anyway, I don't see the big deal with taking a phone into the toilet. Is it any less hygienic than a book or magazine? At least you're much less likely to share your phone with someone else to use compared to a magazine or book. And it's easier to clean a phone.
