women: October 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgOne in two men admit they won't order a soft drink in a pub because 'it's not manly enough', a study has found.

Researchers discovered millions of blokes buckle to peer pressure and order a beer at the bar when they would have happily enjoyed a soft drink.

One-in-ten went as far as to say they 'wouldn't dream' of ordering a non alcoholic beverage in front of their boozing mates.

Around 47 percent of the 2,00 men polled said doing so made them feel 'a bit of a wuss' and 17 percent were worried their mates would take the mickey.

More than half of men also thought it was harder for them to order a soft drink in the pub than a woman. Even though she actually wanted a glass of wine.

What's more, just over half (52%) of the 1,451 women polled, claim they do it regularly, and for a variety of reasons.

Problems parking the car are the top situation in which gender excuses are cites with 67% of women trying it on, followed by catching insects (56%).

Carrying heavy items (48%) cam next, then opening jars (40%). 35% also say they use gender to 'avoid confrontation' -- which could be harder after the results of this poll.
