Does Someone Have Messy Desk Syndrome Where You Work?
Do you work at a desk? Do you keep it clutter free? Results are in from a new survey…most of us have a messy desk at work. Well, they say a messy desk is the sign of a genius. On average, a desk has 19 pieces of paper on it that have absolutely no use whatsoever. One in three desks have hal-eaten food, wrappers, or empty bottles on them. Half of us have left dirty cups and plates on our desk . . . and one in 20 have left them there for at least THREE DAYS. I knew a guy that would leave coffee on his desk, in a Styrofoam cup, for months! I guess he had his own little science experiment going on there. 52% of people say they clean off their desks at most, once a month . . . and one in 10 people haven't in the last SIX months. 48% of people say that they've lost something important because they couldn't find it on their desk . . . and 56% of people say their stress levels increase when they have to deal with a messy desk. One in four people have been told by our boss to clean our desk . . . and one in 10 have gotten a formal warning.
