Life in the Cube, Part II

As a follow up to my, move to the cubicle thread.


My boss decided he needed to setup a command post among us common workers, he did so in the cubicle behind me. It is bad enough that everything the cube jungle is fair game, then add the boss/owner to it. It is like having a referee at your job.

Secondly, I'm going to have to fabricate a door or put a bear trap at the entrance of my cube to keep people from just walking in. There has to be cubicle manners or our society will fall apart.


The lighting is horrible, desk space is way to small, not enough wall space for my diagrams, very little bookshelf space. Worst of all no whiteboard .

I need my office back

The one positive is that everyone gets along works very well together, even the boss.

I recommend 100KW ruby lasers at knee height. They will cauterize as they cut. You won't kill anyone but they wont come into your cube anymore either.

From one cuby to another. I feel your pain.

If the laser becomes an improbable acquisition, there's always this fine selection of defensive armaments:

I like that website. However I'm limiting myself to fashioning my weapons out of what I can find in the supply closet. You can do a lot with paper clips

I say you recreate your office persona as that of Les Nessman.

Command post? Man, I <3 micromanagement! A small joy in my life. Seriously, though. Rejoice, your carbon footprint just shrunk, just like the corresponding shrinkage of your humanity and soul. Thank you, Taylorization! Go home and watch Modern Times, read The Jungle, and then formulate your plan to overthrow the Man.

I must admit, I did have to look it up. Funny thing is already treat the women in our office like he does, I'm a natural.
