Want to make a grown man cry? Tell him he’s only so-so at his job.
According to a new study, men are more likely than women to cry after a performance review at work. 25% of men say they’ve cried after one, versus 18% of women.
Men are also more likely to storm out of their review and quit. 28% of men have quit after a bad review, versus 11% of women.
The study also found two-thirds of both employees and managers think formal performance reviews are outdated and a waste of time.
And 55% think all performance reviews should be eliminated.
According to BusinessInsider.com, here are ten things grown men should never wear. Most guys have at least one of these in their closet . . .
Anything with flames on it.
Really wide ties. They haven’t been fashionable since the mid-’90s. Thinner ties are more in fashion now.
Cargo pants or shorts. Which is debatable, since a LOT of guys still wear them.
Jeans with a ton of embroidery on the back.
Belts with metal studs. They’re for angry teenagers and punk rockers, sorry.
Shirts you’d ONLY wear to a club. If you’re a grown man, your REGULAR dress shirts should be good enough to go out in.
Fedoras. Only skinny hipsters can pull it off.
Wearing sandals all the time. Adidas flip flops, Tevas . . . it doesn’t matter.
Anything with a huge Abercrombie & Fitch logo on it. You shouldn’t still be dressing like you did in 1998.

A new survey asked people to list things you need to accomplish before you’re officially a “grown up.” Here are the top ten answers according to how popular they were, NOT the order you do them . . .
Open a bank account.
Learn how to change a light bulb. Which is weird, but hard to argue against. Because how many grown ups are still baffled by that process?
Learn to write a decent resume.
Get a job.
Get your driver’s license.
Apply for a mortgage.
Do your own taxes.
Budget for something big, like a wedding. Somehow “getting married” didn’t make the top 20 though.
Ask someone on a date.
Put together at least three pieces of Ikea-style furniture.
The rest of the top 20 included learning how to eat healthy . . . learning to negotiate . . . and being responsible for another living thing, meaning a child or a pet.
Comedy Central has released the first promo for their upcoming roast of JUSTIN BIEBER, and it shows Justin shirtless and being pelted with EGGS in slow motion.
Obviously, this is a reference to Justin egging his neighbor’s house last year . . . when he was going through his dumb stupid kid phase. And no, we’re not yet convinced that he’s grown out of that.
The roast will tape in a few weeks, and air on March 30th.
(Here’s the video. Even though Justin is getting egged, he still manages to come out looking good . . . because he’s all oiled up and showing off his body. Hopefully, this isn’t an indication of how the roast will go.)
