Angry Brits reach boiling point 20 times a month Wednesday 5 April 2017 PDF Print NATIONAL NEWS RELEASE Angry Brits reach boiling point on average 20 times a month – with people pushing into queues, rude shop assistants and people who can’t park properly as our biggest bug bears. Researchers have revealed lengthy airport delays are also likely to make our blood boil, as is not being able to log on to your WiFi, watching the endless, spinning wheel on your computer while it’s loading and spam emails. The research conducted by Redring also found 62 percent of Brits said the strains of modern life often made them angry as did standing on chewing gum, being around drunk people when sober - and screaming children in public places. Also featuring on the list were traffic wardens, American rapper Kanye West, smokers, flat tyres, MPs and spilling coffee down yourself. Not surprisingly then, more than one in ten respondents described themselves as “very stressed”, with 41 percent claiming they were ‘somewhat’ stressed. Four in ten of those surveyed said when they lose their temper, they are most likely to vent their anger at their other half. Julie McLean for Redring who commissioned the survey in conjunction with the launch of its new affordable instant 3-in-1 boiling water tap, Reditap, said: “Everyone can relate to this list. Even the calmest of people lose their temper every now and then.” The survey found 46 percent of Brits have got so angry they have screamed out loud, one in five stamp their feet and nearly one in ten have even smashed their phone in frustration or thrown furniture. On average, the research revealed that the typical adult will have four arguments a month with other halves being the person we are most likely to row with. Nearly one in ten said they are most likely to argue with work colleagues and one in twenty said it was their Mum who was most likely to cause friction. Julie McLean for Redring, who have launched a competition on https://www.facebook.com/RedringUK/ added: “The research shows, impatience is a trigger for stress – in this day and age we are used to getting things instantly, so waiting for technology to load or being sat in traffic can cause us to reach boiling point. “With the Redring 3-in-1 instant boiling water tap, you have boiling water immediately available at the turn of a tap, so there is no need to wait for the kettle or a pan of water to boil.” The poll found 86 percent of those questioned felt Britain was becoming a less tolerant nation.
