Half of People Don’t Tell Their Significant Other About All the Junk Food They Eat at Work

It’s hard to work in an office and not eat junk food. Someone brings in donuts in the morning . . . someone else has candy on their desk . . . and then there’s the occasional birthday cake.

But do you go home and tell your significant other about all that junk you ate? According to a new survey, 47% of people say NO, they keep it a secret.

And 21% take it even further and LIE about what they ate during the work day.

Four Things Your Credit Card Company Will Do if You Just Ask

Four Things Your Credit Card Company Will Do if You Just Ask

A lot of young people don’t know this. If you ever miss a credit card payment, just ASK them to waive the late fee. Unless it’s a regular thing, there’s a good chance they’ll do it.

According to a new survey, here are four things your credit card company will usually do for you if you just call them up and ask . . .

1. Waive a late payment fee. Only 25% of us have asked, and it worked 87% of the time. You just can’t do it all the time.

2. Up your credit limit. 28% of people have asked, and it worked 89% of the time.

3. Lower your interest rate. 19% of people have asked, and it worked 69% of the time.

4. Waive their annual fee. Only 11% of people have asked for it. 51% had it waived, and another 31% ended up paying a lower fee. So that’s an 82% success rate.

The survey did find it’s a little harder for YOUNG people to get a yes on all that stuff. But once you hit your mid-to-late 20’s, your chances go way up.

93% of people between 27 and 36 who’ve asked for any of those four things have gotten a yes at least once.

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.
