A day in the life... of office staff.

THE average worker arrives at his or her desk at 8.09am, spends pounds 3.23 on lunch, drinks three cups of tea or coffee, and argues with a colleague once a day, according to new research.

A study of 2,000 office employees showed a usual working day of nine hours 13 minutes, a 28-minute lunch break, normally sitting at their desk, with 10 minutes and 15 seconds spent on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The survey by Mars Drinks, aimed at finding the average daily life of British workers, also revealed that computer breakdowns were the main bugbear, although many people said they were annoyed when colleagues did not make their fair share of tea and coffee.
