This week: From toilets to iPads to Santa Clauses. With funny pictures.
Toilets per 100 people in Boulder, Colorado — the only major metropolitan area to have “more residential toilets than actual people.” So says new and vital research from real estate firm Redfin. Bringing up the rear, so to speak, is Miami with 62.
Percent of employees who “report being distracted during the workday,” according to employment consultants Virgin Pulse. What’s most distracting? More than half (54 percent) say “it’s their fellow co-workers looking to chat and socialize.”
Percent of tech shoppers who “will buy new iPad Air 2 simply to own latest model,” according to computer accessory maker Kensington. Of those, “11 percent were simply looking for the right opportunity to gift an old tablet in favor of acquiring the new one.”
Percent of American adults who say their identity has been stolen, according to legal consultants Findlaw. If that number doesn’t surprise you, maybe this one will: “Approximately 10 percent of Americans report having their identity stolen more than once.”
Percent of shoppers who will drive to a mall this holiday season specifically “for a Santa-related activity,” according to the ICSC, the trade association for shopping malls.
Percent of workers who quit because they’re “bored with their job,” according to staffing firm Robert Half. That barely (and surprisingly) edges out “overworked” at 9 percent.
