If you haven't had a whole lot of luck recently getting that raise or big promotion at work, try doing this next time, bring your supervisor some bake goods.

Believe it or not, people are actually so desperate they're baking things like cakes and giving them to their boss with hope of advancing their career.

We've resorted to legal bribery to get what we want in the workplace! This is what we’ve been reduced too?

According to a new survey, one in four of us claimed to have used cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and brownies to try and impress our boss and hopefully get an extra look when it comes time to hand out promotions in the office.

Get this, men are more likely than women to bring in a batch of homemade yummies and place them on their bosses’ desk with the goal of moving their careers forward.

Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "scoring some brownie points" doesn't it?

Even if the boss doesn't bite, the survey found that 10% of people who've brought in baked goods have done it hoping to impress another single co-worker, so they could score a date!

Ah, the things we do for love and money. I think I'm gonna go bake a Bunt cake right now.
