What Americans Secretly Want To Do Every Night
Breaking News: A night spent on the couch is better than a night not spent on the couch.
You already knew that of course, but now it’s official. That’s because we did some fancy research* and discovered FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is being replaced with POMO (Pleasure Of Missing Out). Apparently we’ve been POMOing this whole time and didn’t even know it!
Anyway, according to our research, most people would prefer to watch a movie, take a nap, or even do chores rather than go out. In fact, almost 80% said they’ve lied or made excuses to avoid going out.
To be honest, we weren’t surprised by the survey results. First of all, because it’s totally a bummer getting dressed (silly restaurants and their rules about pants). But also because we’ve been watching our delivery numbers increase every year. Seriously, do you know how many times we almost ran out of tacos?
We’re confident the POMOing trend will continue and we just want you guys to know we support your right to POMO as much as you want. In fact, we hope you POMO until you can’t POMO anymore. And then, just when you think you’re done POMOing, we’ll bring you some egg rolls so you can POMO a little more.
Alright everyone, get
out there inside, use our couch-friendly app, and POMO!
