The New Cube

Filed under: PolenBabble, Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 4:22 pm

So they finally caught up with us a few weeks ago at work, and demanded that we move.  I made the necessary arrangements with Facilities, and this morning, I came in and sat down at my cube for the first time.

C's New Cube.  Yes, that's a lava lamp.

The movers did a good job putting everything in the same drawers, more or less.  I unpacked the rest of the things into nearby cabinets, noting that some selfish prick already took cabinets that were supposed to be for me, and just for laughs, decided to see how obvious it would be to people walking down the hall near me that I might be slacking:

Walking down the hall

It’s pretty obvious.

You are SO busted.

And just to show you how much they really suck, here’s a picture of the entire row of cubes - fortunately none of the others are occupied at the moment:

The Row of Admins.

You can see my plants sticking out at the end there.

Who thinks that this is a good way to have their support staff?  Yes, I know back in the old days there were no cubes, everyone had desks and everyone could see what everyone else was doing and hear what everyone else was saying all the time.  I just think if you’re going to put people in cubes, everyone should have the same kind, AKA the kind with sides, so you at least feel like you have a little privacy, even if you really don’t.

I know I’ve said a thousand times that I need to get out of here, but I’m actually doing something about it now.  I’m working with a friend of mine on Sunday who is going to revamp my resume to make me sound a lot more important than I actually am, so I can send out my resume to companies without feeling that they’re just going to want me to be an admin.

In the meantime, I’ve ordered a privacy screen.  Fuckers.

  3. Ouch. That’s, um, ghastly. As if the mental-hospital-green color-scheme does anything to mitigate the situation. (I believe that particular shade has been scientifically proven to reduce aggression in the criminally insane. In normal people, it reduces will to live. Get out of there ASAP!!)
