This poll confused me, because most people think this summer SUCKED . . . but we also want more of it? A new survey of 1,500 Americans found 80% of us had a, quote, “bummer summer.” But 48% also wish there was a way to extend it for another two weeks. (There’s actually almost a month of summer left, by the way.)
Here are a few more random stats from the survey. . .
1. 27% said they’d rather have a root canal than relive this past summer. (???) 37% would rather move in with their parents. And 9% would rather feel seasick for three months straight. (Wow, was watching Netflix in July really THAT bad?)
2. The states where people were most likely to say they had a terrible summer are: South Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
3. And here’s the weirdest question they asked: What did the summer of 2021 TASTE like? 21% said “fruity” . . . 18% said it tasted like “boredom” (???) . . . 15% said “bitter” . . . 11% said “salty” . . . another 11% said “spicy” . . . 10% said “boozy.”
