I sit at a group of four cubicles. So far this week, I have managed to claim three of the cubicles – one for my laptop, another because I need a computer within parallel cable distance of a printer, and the third because I have some software running on the print server. As soon as I can work out how to evict the occupant of the fourth cubicle, they will all be mine.
Having secured proprietorship over all four cubicles, I’m going to run a floor to ceiling wall around them all, put in a door, have an interior designer do something about the decor, get myself a comfy new black leather chair and perhaps a hire a personal assistant. I shall then schedule a meeting with my boss to demand the payrise that goes with the prestige of being the only person in the entire company to rate a personal office.
