Now that summer is on its way out, it's time to BADMOUTH IT.
There's a new survey out on the most frustrating parts of summer, and not surprisingly, MOSQUITOES is #1. ("Searing your love-handles on seat belt buckles" was totally snubbed!)
Here's the rest of the list of things that we HATE about summer:
3. Excessive heat.
4. Humidity and "stickiness."
5. "Increased number of people in my usual area." (???) (Or: There are crowds.)
6. Higher utility bills.
8. Excessive air conditioning.
9. Lack of shade outside.
10. Pressure to do something.
Just missing the Top 10 was TICKS. They're gnarly . . . but not as bad as the pressure to do something, apparently.
49% of people said they'd rather stand in an outdoor ticket line for hours than suffer through bug bites.
44% of people said they'd give up social media for a month if they could avoid mosquitoes. And 29% say they'd rather get a sunburn than be bit by bugs.
