How much do you earn on the toilet? Find out with Plumbworld.co.uk
As humans, we, unfortunately, have certain urges that we absolutely have to act upon. The need to go to the toilet is one such urge, and we’ve all done that urgent dance when we desperately need to have a wee, but the toilet is unavailable. It’s an activity that we repeat throughout the day, no matter where we happen to be at the time. Let’s just hope there’s actually a toilet nearby!
We spend a lot of time at work, and while some people may believe that their employers would rather have them chained to their desks 24/7, the reality is that it is well within your legal rights to be able to pop off to the loo when the urge to void yourself appears. However, there are still news stories that pop up from time to time where an employer has been accused of excessively monitoring toilet time. They do this because every minute that you’re not working is another minute that they’re paying you for not working. Ultimately there is nothing that can be done about this. We are humans, not machines, so unfortunately we’re going to have to go when we need to.
But all this raises an interesting question; how much are you actually earning when you’re sat on the toilet? The clock is still ticking and your hourly rate still applies, so when we go to the toilet we’re actually getting paid to poo or pee. While that might sound like it would be the easiest paid job ever, it’s the reality that all employers have to live with.
To work out how much you’re earning on the porcelain throne, we’ve developed a calculator that does the job for you. Just pop in your annual wage, plus the average amount of times and minutes you go to the toilet each day, and the calculator will tell you the following:
- How long you sit on the toilet every year.
- How much you get paid for each trip.
- How much you’ll earn over the course of an average career.
We apparently use our phones on the toilet quite a lot too, so why not go for the double and check the calculator whilst you’re there? Just click on the picture at the top of this post. We just hope we don’t catch your boss sneakily trying to find out how much you’re costing the company when you’re doing your business.
