New Survey Proves Your Coworkers Are Gross Pigs

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Your workplace may be a rat race but many of your fellow employees are pigs.

That’s the dirty little secret from a new survey by ServiceMaster Clean, which asked American employees about their coworkers’ health habits.

The results are sickening: 54 percent say they’ve seen their coworkers leave a bathroom without washing their hands – up 11 percent from last year – and 14 percent claim it happens on a daily basis.

Even yuckier: 65 percent claim their coworkers take off their shoes at work and 54 percent often see the offenders go into the bathroom with newspapers or magazines.

Another 58 percent say their fellow employees constantly leave dirty dishes out and 18 percent say it’s a daily event.

But the messiness isn’t for lack of time because only 13 percent claim they are too busy to tidy up their workspaces.
