People have stopped working hard in the office during the Olympics

The Dark Side Of The Olympics

A recent study was released about the workplace during the Olympics -- and you shouldn't share this story with your boss.

Believe it or not, there is expected to be $5.4 billion lost in productivity at work from employees watching their favorite sport while on the job, across the globe.

That's right -- $5.4 billion over the course of 11 business days, meaning today alone $490 million will be lost.

So for those who already know their productivity is going to be low, but their morale is going to be high, Bud Light is making sure those fans leave the office Friday at 5 p.m. and post a custom out of office message to get together with friends for Happy Hour and cheer on team USA vs. doing it alone at their desk.

Try it out. Maybe even invite your boss.
