When it comes to the home it seems we are a nation of rule-enforcers, but this could be at the expense of a harmonious household, according to new research. The survey of 1,067 UK and Irish adults conducted by heating oil supplier, Super Saver Oil revealed how more than half (53%) have fallen out with a household member over rules in the home.
In fact, 1 in 3 (33%) of adults questioned wished they lived on their own because co-habitants don’t follow rules in the home.
When quizzed on the rules in the home, the most common rule was revealed as no shoes on the furniture (62%).
Meanwhile, no phones at the dinner table came in second place, with 46% admitting to implementing this rule.
