I’ve already shared with you about how cubicles really can be annoying when you sit next to the loudest two individuals in the world.

Now, I’d like to point you to a video that Long Zheng posted (from istartedsomething) from when Conan O’Brien visited Intel headquarters.

Here are some similarities between Intel and where I work:

  1. Cubicles really are like parking garages, except that you have assigned spots.
  2. Cubicles really don’t have much color or individuality (I do have a National Geographic map on my cubicle wall, though - yay!).
  3. People really are picky about their chairs. Seriously picky.

Here are some differences between Intel and where I work:

  1. No cafeteria.
  2. No “ultra-clean” factory.
  3. Hairnets only come into play on Halloween.
  4. I haven’t ever seen kids on a field trip, though we do have kids come around our cubes to sell cookies sometimes (and on Halloween).

One other thing - I think I’ve met Bill Lumbergh’s clone in our cubicle farm. I’m guessing any and all work environments that make use of cubes have their Bill Lumberghs.
