These days it seems everyday life is becoming more and dependent on technology and instant gratification has become the norm. Is that making people less patient? Fifth Third Bank did a survey and found most people will seek a faster way, even if it comes at a price.
Here are a few of Fifth Third's findings:
-96 percent of Americans will knowingly consume extremely hot food or drink that burns their mouth; 63 percent do so frequently
-More than half hang up the phone after being on hold one minute or less
-71 percent frequently exceed the speed limit to get to their destination faster
-Americans will binge-watch an average of seven TV episodes in a single sitting
-Nearly a third of respondents ages 18-24 wait less than one second before bypassing a slow walker
-Gen Yers check their phones an average of eight times when waiting to hear back from someone they've dated
The survey is part of the bank's launch of a new app. Click HERE to read more.
