Lawyers are the filthiest of all office workers
07 October 2011
Scientific testing has revealed that lawyers are dirty beasts who never clean their desks and are happy to wallow in their own filth.
Office supplier Viking tested swabs sent in by desk jockeys from hundreds of offices across the UK, before proudly announcing
that it is lawyers (along with accountants and IT workers) who have the most unhygienic workstations. So well done the legal profession.

It seems that desks, phones and two thirds of computer keyboards were
found to be riddled with germs - with some even sprouting mould. This is because two thirds of office types eat lunch at their desks - and then singularly fail to clean up afterwards. Viking found this "staggering
", thus demonstrating that working hours in the office supplies business are rather gentler than those in the legal profession.
Dr Lisa Ackerley said "there are some very unhygenic desks right now in the UK, which is very worrying
". Don't have nightmares, now.
