Nearly Half Of Americans Cry At Work

I’ve cried watching Toy Story, so you already know I’m a part of the statistic.

From The New York Post:

The number of people who have cried at work is surprisingly high: 45%.

The oddly comforting figure was highlighted in September’s Harper’s Index, the magazine’s list of telling statistics, presented without commentary.

However, as many of us know, the concept of having a total and utter breakdown at your desk or in the office bathroom isn’t new. Even the citation of the Harper’s Index notes that it’s from a 2018 Accountemps survey.

The reasons for bawling on the clock are many — and often don’t involve work itself. Sometimes you just happen to be there! A 2019 Monster survey found that 19% of people boohoo over personal reasons, such as family troubles or health issues.

If you don’t want to become a statistic, you’re in luck. New York City is probably the best place to cry.
