Your Boss Will Judge You If Your Desk Is Too Messy . . . Or Too Clean?

Your Boss Will Judge You If Your Desk Is Too Messy . . . Or Too Clean?

I don’t think anyone would be surprised that it can be unprofessional to have a super messy desk. But you might not see THIS one coming: It also might be unprofessional to have a desk that’s too CLEAN.

A new survey found 54% of bosses say it’s a red flag when one of their employees’ desks is too messy. But 10% say they’re suspicious of an employee whose desk is too CLEAN.

They didn’t get into the reasons why, but we’re thinking it could be because a clean desk makes it seem like your workload is too light because you have enough time to constantly straighten up.

And since a messy desk can be linked to creativity, having a clean one could show you’re too uptight and un-creative.

The survey also found 15% of bosses have had an employee hang up something inappropriate in their cubicle.

BUT . . . when you add it all up, the average person spends 15 months of their LIFE trying to decide what to watch.

So . . . she bought a pink Barbie TOY JEEP off Craigslist. It runs on a 12-volt battery and maxes out at five miles per hour. It also looks ridiculous when an adult is driving it.

She’s been spotted in it all over the campus . . . which has led to TONS of people posting pictures of her on social media. She says, quote, “This is the best way I could’ve gotten my 15 minutes of fame.”
