SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Who knew? Over half of us actually enjoy going to work, according to a new survey. A poll of 2,000 US office workers looking into what a return to the office looks like found that 54% actually prefer heading to work, rather than working from home all or part of the time. As for what aspects of the office that people like, #1 was tech equipment (such as printers/scanners, 31%), followed by co-workers, work computers, the conversations they have at the office, and the fast internet connection. A spokesperson from Industrious, which commissioned the survey, said the results show that in spite of the fact that there have been reports that make it seem like we’d all like to be able to work from home forever, “most people don’t actually want to spend the next 10 years working from their couches at home.”

New research suggests many sellers on Amazon are being less than honest. A collaborative US study found that over a quarter of vacuum cleaners sold on Amazon have at some point pretended to offer a discount when the price actually increased. Many dealers were found to add a previously unadvertised “list price”, crossing out the more-expensive list price, and giving shoppers the impression that they’re getting a better deal. This practice signals to shoppers that they are taking advantage of a discount when they’re actually paying 23% more, on average. Study authors saw sellers of digital cameras, blenders, drones, and books employing the same misleading strategy.


On “Good Morning America”, Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik spoke about the pressures of stepping up to the podium to share hosting duties in the wake of Alex Trebek’s passing. The iconic game show has aired for 39 seasons, but this will be the first full season without its longtime host. Jennings has led the charge since September and will continue until January, when Bialik will take over through the end of the season. The former “Jeopardy!” champ said that hosting is harder than being a contestant, because “you basically have to do everything the contestants do, plus manage the game for them, plus manage the game for the home viewer.” For Bialik, the hardest part of hosting the show is learning to tone down her excitement “and not make faces” when contestants get the answer right.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ character might’ve been offended by being called old in the first “Freaky Friday” but now? She wants to be “the old grandma who switches places” in a sequel. She first got the hopes of fans up last week, when she said she’d “Absolutely” do another Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan. Then, while guesting on “The View” Monday, Curtis revealed that she’s trying to make it happen. When host Sara Haines gave her the floor “to pitch Disney” if she wanted to, Curtis admitted she already has. Quote: “I’ve already written to my friends at Disney…I’m in their new ‘Haunted Mansion’ movie, so I’m back in (the family).”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

“Quiet quitting” was the big buzzword a month or 2 back, but the new thing to do is to “let it rot”. Sounds nice. What is it? Let it rot, or “bai lan” in Mandarin, is the latest work trend from China that’s appealing to disgruntled employees worldwide. It is described as the mindset of “leaning into self-indulgence and away from life expectations that seem neither meaningful nor attainable”. In work terms, ‘let it rot’ is like quiet quitting’s more destructive brother. Rather than encouraging employees to complete the basic requirements of their job description – and nothing extra – in a bid to insert boundaries, ‘let it rot’ is about tapping out altogether. It is believed to come from the bai lan basketball tactic, when a losing team stops trying to win in order to more rapidly bring a game to its end.

And how about the latest dating trend? You’ve heard of “cuffing season”, the time of year where singles couple up with short-term partners for coziness and comfort to get them through the cold and lonely winter months. Now comes “winter coating”. That’s when people hit up those they’ve dated, hooked up with, or even been in a full-blown relationship with, to convert them into a seasonal partner for the winter. Just as we brush off our winter coats and shove them to the back of the closet at the first sight of sun, ex-lovers can be company, then cast off as soon as spring kicks in. The experts at the dating site “Inner Circle” say that winter coating is set to rise this year as singles look for old flames who can share the increased costs of living.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A grocery shopper in California has filed a class-action lawsuit against the T.W. Garner Food Co., alleging false advertising over their Texas Pete brand of hot sauce. His issue? Texas Pete hot sauce is not made in Texas, but rather North Carolina. Philip White, of Los Angeles, claims he was under the impression that Texas Pete hot sauce was produced in Texas when he purchased a $3 bottle at a Ralph’s supermarket in September 2021, according to the complaint. “White relied upon the language and images displayed on the front label of the product, and at the time of purchase understood the product to be a Texas product,” the complaint said. The label includes “the famed white ‘lone’ star from the Texan flag together with a ‘lassoing’ cowboy,” which are images White assumed to be distinctly Texan, the lawsuit stated. White said he was later surprised to learn that Texas Pete is not a product of Texas, but manufactured in Winston-Salem, North Carolina — a fact T.W. Garner Food Co. readily admits on its website.

A Reddit thread asked people to reveal the horrible movie that they started watching, but just couldn’t bring themselves to finish…

✗ “My mom recorded Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral the other day because that’s just how bored she is. She doesn’t even like Madea. I sat through the first 5 minutes before I couldn’t take any more. Later, she finished it and told me ‘…yep. Madea still sucks.’”
