    I miss my cube... I had a drawer full of snacks, a wall of snark and a whiteboard. It wasn't that private but it was mine.

    Damn open concept offices. The cleaning lady is mowing the carpet down the row and someone has a cough.

    I'm the opposite. My last job had cubes, but they only rose about a foot above the desk. I liked that.

    My current job has very tall hexagons. Luckily, I can knock out a couple of the walls, so I'm not in a dark space all the time, but I miss constant interaction.

    I think the best layout is a square with a cube in each corner, backs to each other. If its good enough for communal showers it's good enough for the office.
  • so lemme see if I got this straight - we spend years beating kids into submission, teaching them to mindlessly obey authority and to never question anything...then suddenly we expect them to act like fully realized self actualized adults who can keep society free and make decisions for themselves all on their own?

  • Thanks to my trusty cubicle, no one can tell that all I do is surf Fark all day.

    ...Well, except maybe the IT guy.

    Here's to hoping he doesn't give a damn.
  • Damnit, thought this was gonna be about my HS.

    /We had actual cubicles for kids to do their work in before moving buildings
    //Damn, those cubicles were lifesavers, and I wasn't the only one who thought so.
  • Hello Peter, whats happening? Ummm, I'm gonna need you to go ahead come in tomorrow. So if you could be here around 9 that would be great, mmmk... oh oh! and I almost forgot ahh, I'm also gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday too, 'kay. We ahh lost some people this week and ah, we sorta need to play catch up.
  • Their source is a site called EduShyser. I'm not going to say I don't believe them, but really?

    Yeah, those are going away, fast. There isnt a single office reno that i have seen that isn't removing cubes and replacing them with "benching concepts" and not a single employee likes them. They do two things for the bosses: One, they can micro-manage and observe more, and two, they can fit more people into a room per sq. ft. than with cubes. Of course, the bosses keep their private offices.

    He's probably having too much fun Fark stalking you and trolling you all day to care.

    Of course not. Such an expectation would be preposterous!

    The difficult burden of having to make decisions is handled for them by the Alphas.

    We can always go to the old British Imperial method where you're shipped off at an early age and you can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat. That system seemed to compliment their global domination ambitions nicely.
  • Came for Milford Academy, leaving satisfied.
  • have my own office.
    Have had one for 5 years now.
    I like my office.

    I work in an IT office, and trust me, he doesn't. As long as you're not accessing pr0nz or anything that could get malware on your network, he's not going to care. Just make sure your boss doesn't catch you, I guess.

    Two years ago, I was assigned to a cube for the first time in my long professional career. I'd always had an office before It took quite a bit of adjustment. But It's not that bad. Years ago, I went to pick up a friend for lunch one day. He worked at a huge Air Force finance center. I stopped at the visitors desk and got a visitor's bag and his "address". He was on the third floor, section F, bay nine, row 15, desk six. The place was unbelievable. Each floor was warehouse size and row-after-row of desks. It was depression as hell.
