You Stole WHAT From Work?!
Ever cracked open the supply closet at work and raided it like it's a pantry full of freebies? No, probably not, right? Who needs boxes and boxes of Purell? Well apparently some of us are indeed stealing from 'the man'. According to a new study from YouGov, many of us take some minor items from our employer, while others go for the BIG STUFF.
Check out our top 5 most 'borrowed' work items:
1. Pens and pencils. 38% of us have stolen them from work before.
2. Note pads and other stationery, 22%.
3. Printer paper, 18%.
4. Staplers, 8%.
5. Food from the kitchen, also 8%. Toilet paper just missed the top five at 7%.
Also, 5% of us have stolen things like mugs or silverware from the kitchen while 3% have stolen money and 2% have stolen a computer.
The survey also asked bosses how SERIOUS it is to steal different things. 89% said stealing money is 'very serious,' and 87% said the same about a computer or laptop. Less than 15% said it's serious to steal things like pens, pencils, scissors, and stationery.
