Is it time for American businesses to rethink how they define “normal” business hours? According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, the majority of U.S. workers (59 percent) say the traditional 9-to-5 work day is a thing of the past.

Of these distractions, mobile phones and texting habits present the biggest obstacle to productivity.

According to the survey, U.S. workers spend an average of roughly $276 per month – for a grand total of $3,300 per year – on activities related to the simple act of getting to work.

More than 3,000 full-time workers participated in the survey, wherein they were asked to name the most unusual request they’ve ever gotten from a boss.
