The website QuickSurveys.com does a poll each year to find out how “naughty” and “nice” we’ve been. It covers everything from dating habits to politics.
Most of the “nice” things they asked about are kind of boring though: 28% of us donated our time . . . 31% donated money . . . 60% did at least one random act of kindness . . . and 50% CLAIM they never lashed out at anyone over the election.
Here are six “naughty” things we did that are a little more interesting . . .
1. 17% of people unfriended someone on Facebook over the election . . . and 16% lied about voting when they actually didn’t vote at all.
2. A third of people in relationships looked through the other person’s phone or Internet history . . . and 15% of single people flaked on a first date.
3. 26% of people found something that didn’t belong to them, and kept it. And 17% found a wallet, purse, or bag and DID return it, but stole something out of it first.
4. 59% of us pretended to be sick to get out of something we didn’t want to do.
5. 20% of people admitted to gossiping about a close friend.
6. And 12% lied on their résumé, or in a job interview.
I figured you should hear this story once, since this guy is going to hear about it every single day for the rest of his life.
A guy named Walter from Argentina went on a trip to Brazil with his wife Claudia and their 14-year-old son last week. And as they were driving home, they stopped at a gas station to fill up. And Claudia got out to buy some cookies.
But Walter didn’t realize it . . . he thought she was still sleeping in the backseat. So he and his son drove off and left her behind. And when she tried to call him, it didn’t work . . . since he was going through a rural area and he didn’t have a signal.
So she finally called the police, and they took her to the police station. And Walter drove SIXTY MILES before he finally realized she was missing. Then he turned around to go back and get her, but she’d been stranded for over two hours by then.
And the cops say she was FURIOUS. Quote, “There was no physical assault . . . but she was very angry. She was moaning at him for taking so long to realize.” She also kicked the car when he showed up.

Ahem… cough cough… I hope our bosses are listening, because I could use some extra cash.
Chieh Huang is the CEO of Boxed.com . . . they sell stuff like toilet paper and laundry detergent in bulk, and mail it to you. And he recently decided to add a new perk for his employees . . . he’s going to pay for ALL of their kids to go to college.
He says he’ll cover four years of tuition for each kid, and it doesn’t matter what college they choose. There’s no cap on it, so even if they need 60 grand a year to go to Harvard, he’ll pay.
The money is coming out of his own pocket, and a few investors are pitching in. He says he doesn’t actually think of it as a perk, he just wants his employees to know he’s committed to making sure their families are taken care of.
Right now, the company has about 100 employees. And apparently most of them are pretty young, because they only have 12 kids total.
But obviously that’ll change . . . especially now that they know they can pop out as many kids as they want, and not worry about paying for their education.
