Some really amusing facts and stats coming out of Continental tyres latest survey, for example, rate these occasions in order of stress rating – giving birth, breaking down and moving house?
You might be surprised to learn that giving birth comes third, way behind breaking down – which is a walk in the park compared to moving house.
Continental Tyres quizzed 2000 people to find out what gets them hot under the collar and 51% said they’d started their holiday with a row – and that they had an average of three spats with partners or family members during the trip.
The survey also revealed that it takes an average of two days and six hours for holidaymakers to relax once they’ve reached their destination – and 15% said they were more tense after their holiday than before they went.
Here are the top 10 causes of stress:

6) Wallet being stolen
