    Office to Cubicle

    I'm being moved from my big office to a small cubicle today. I'm going to be among the general population at work, I feel violated.

    Put a roof on your cubicle and call it an office.

    If you were a suit this morning we (the general population) will never accept you. No worries. Hey, you know what a shank is?

    Cubes are bearable, as long as people can't constantly peer over your shoulder or you aren't next to a busy walkway.

    Grab the closest engineer and beat the snot out of him, and make sure everyone sees you do it. As a former office dweller you've got no crew out in the cubicle gen-pop. Your only hope is to prove your strength and make people fear you.

    Some cubical have the option of a sliding door. This helps ease the transition to part of the cubie hivemind.

    hows the cubicle?

    I'd recommend investing in a door.

    If you can't get one of the good ones, you could always fashion one of your own.

    dude, that sucks. a friend of mine just got moved to a cube after getting an office. he felt downgraded in more ways than one.

    i, myself, just moved from a huge open area with 8 other people to my own cube, so i'm relatively happy. now i'm on BF all the time.

    This is my cubicle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master my cubicle as I master life. My cubicle, without me, is useless.


    (My cubicle is not my best friend. I left that part out on purpose.)
