Brits fib about week­ends to im­press

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

A QUAR­TER of Bri­tons fib about their week­end ac­tiv­i­ties in a bid to im­press oth­ers.

A sur­vey of 5000 adults pub­lished yes­ter­day found more 27 per cent ad­mit­ted be­ing eco­nom­i­cal with the truth when asked by friends or col­leagues what they did on their days off. Go­ing out on a Satur­day night topped the list of most pop­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties peo­ple pre­tended they did ( 33 per cent), fol­lowed by vis­it­ing friends ( 25 per cent), go­ing to a din­ner party ( 17 per cent), go­ing out for a ro­man­tic meal ( 12 per cent) and tak­ing a mini-break ( 10 per cent).

Psy­chol­o­gist Corinne Sweet said the sur­vey com­mis­sioned by Travelodge re­vealed a de­gree of ‘‘ Week­endvy’’.
