Why Waiting Room Magazines Are Awful

December 19, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

Doctor waiting rooms rarely have any good magazines lying about. Kevin Lora reported on a study that figured out why:

  • Researchers found that all the best magazines are stolen by those passing through.
  • People are more likely to steal newer magazines than older ones.
  • They’re also more likely to steal gossipy celebrity magazines rather than magazines such as The Economist or Time.
  • Oddly people were more likely to take cheaper magazines with them.
