The Swedish furniture brand surveyed over 8,000 people in international cities. It found interesting stats about how people feel when they wake up (spoiler alert: stressed) and whether or not everyone's cuddling enough. The highlight about New Yorkers, though, is that we're bringing our jobs home with us — namely, to our toilets.
"Quite a few New Yorkers have no issue conducting their business where other business is traditionally done," according to the report. Apparently 17% of the New Yorkers surveyed admit to working (or studying) while on the porcelain throne — compared to only 10% of people in Berlin, London, Moscow, Mumbai, and Paris. This trend's likely cause? That ambitious, 24/7 work mentality many NYC folks feel.
It's true that the NYC work ethic is unlike any other. We would turn that information into an argument for transforming bathrooms into cell-phone-free zones — if we weren't fairly certain you're reading this on the john right now. (Fast Company)
