Women’s Office’s Cleaner Than Men’s
Maybe this isn’t a surprise but at least now there is scientific data to back it up. Women’s office work areas are cleaner than men’s. A recent study reported by the New York Times found that, overall, the bacteria count in men’s offices was 10-20% higher than women’s. The study took into account 5 work surfaces, chairs, desktops, phones, computer mice and keyboards. The reasons for the hygienic disparity?
“It could be men are just bigger — they have bigger mouths and more surface area — but it could also be that men are less hygienic,” said an author of the study, Scott Kelley, a microbiologist at San Diego State University.
I guess that must have been the reason that the “Peanuts” character Pigpen was boy and not a girl.
