dirty work

I just learned that teaching is the dirtiest job. The findings come from the Clorox Company. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Teachers’ phones, keyboards, and computer mice had the most germs.

  • Accountants' desks had the most germs of any desks sampled.

  • Lawyers had the least germy desks.

  • Publicists had the least germy phones.

  • Bankers had the least germy keyboards.

  • TV producers had the least germy computer mice.

    "Surfaces regularly used by teachers, accountants, and bankers harbored nearly two to 20 times more bacteria per square inch when compared to other professions," the report states.
