Letterman's Top 10 List of Drawbacks to working in a cubicle...

10. Being told to "Think outside the box" when you're in a @#$%ing box all day long.

9. Not being able to check your e-mail attachments without turning around to see who's behind you.

8. Fabric cubicle walls do not offer much protection from any kind of gunfire.

7. That nagging feeling that if you press the right button, you'll get a piece of cheese.

6. Lack of roof rafters for the noose.

5. The walls are too close together for the hammock to work right.

4. 23 power cords, 1 outlet.

3. Prison cells are not only bigger, they also have beds.

2. When tours come through, you get peanuts thrown at you.

... and the Number 1 drawback to working in a cubicle:

1. You can't slam the door when you quit and walk out.

i've never had to work in Cubicle Hell myself, so far, but I've always wondered what sort of mental effects such a thing might have. No windows, just flourescent lights and little dividers. weird.

It is... impersonal. No privacy. I still hate people walkig up behind me when I don't realize they have done so. I understand the utility, but they aren't very conducive to the best work. Especially when you work with the type of people that I do and have to listen to them allll day. Thursday's random, obnoxious topic was 'are all Jewish people uncircumcised?'. No, I am *so* not kidding. A couple of weeks ago they had a 'who has the biggest ass' contest... *sigh*

is there such a thing as an office that isn't rife with stupid attitudes and gossip? everyone is always accusing everyone else of having affairs out here. (if i were gonna have an affair, i'd not pick any of the losers out here)
