Your lifetime, calculated in jobs, sick days, raises...and office romances

      We learned from "Rent" that there are 525,600 minutes in a year, which can be measured in cups of coffee and sunsets. But a British healthcare provider has calculated a lifetime in a little bit of a different way -- in pay raises, jobs held down...and office romances

      UK-based benenden health released a report today explaining the real seasons of love. Here's what they found:

      The average Briton (which are quite a bit like the average American, so we think it still holds) will have, in a lifetime:

      • Six jobs

      • 12 pay raises (or two per job)

      • 125 sick days

      • 188 days when they're late to work

      • 10 job interviews

      • three major fights at work and...

      • One office romance
