Work is supposed to be about bringing home the bacon, not making it. But 12 percent of U.S. employees did not get that memo, according to Glassdoor, an online” jobs and career community” that occasionally likes to steam up the windows.
About 1,000 anonymous cubicle dwellers were polled. Here’s some of the findings:
- Twelve percent admit to “making love” in the workplace. There’s no telling how many would have admitted to “making lust.”
- Twenty-two percent say that while they have not “made love” in the workplace, they have thought about doing it, probably after watching a Spanish soap opera.
- Forty-percent believe their co-workers have “made love” in the workplace. These are likely the same people that think you took the last cup of coffee.
- Eighteen percent admit they are attracted to at least one of their co-workers, which tells me people aren’t drinking enough at work.
- The majority (54%) say most office romances end with some or a lot of “awkwardness” at work. This is probably a reference to the serial “high fives” taking place near the water cooler.
- More than one-third (37%) have been involved with a co-worker romantically. This figure is undoubtedly higher in some industries, such as long-haul trucking and professional sports.
