Cubicle Conundrums

Spoiler Alert!

A typical day for those of us who have to watch our favorite shows the day after they air... 8:00 AM The 3rd season of Walking the New Girl’s Dead Modern Family premiered last night, but you couldn’t watch it because you had to go to the airport to pick up your brother’s friend’s mom’s uncle who looks like Elvis. You’ve recorded the episode and can’t wait to watch it tonight, but this morning, as you walk into work, you realize that you’re now in what's known as... the spoiler zone (dun dun duuuun!). This is the time zone between when you get to work...

Sweaty Lunch

I appreciate my coworker's drive to work-out everyday over lunch.  But dude. Sweat in the afternoon is not a delightful smell. #cubiclelife   In times like these you're probably wishing that your co-worker would have never started on that health kick. Why can't he stay in the office and eat leftover pizza from his desk like he used to? At least that smelled a lot better. Cubicle Life is hard enough as it is. There is a nearly constant barrage of smells that fly about in the office each day. Add sweat and body odor into the mix and you...

Reply All - OUCH

The moment when someone accidentally hits "reply all" to a company email and you are so thankful it's not you #cubiclelife    -@bayjb   Over the years, many of us have probably had a "reply all" scare at some point. There are definitely different degrees of severity when it comes to this. A few years ago I accidentally sent out my golf handicap (which is the maximum of 30) to everyone in my organization. What's makes this worse is that I worked for a company whose sole purpose of existence is golf. Needless to say, this was not my proudest...

Hallway Etiquette

This happens to us every now-and-then and we wanted to get the community's take. Eye contact is something that many people don't seem to discuss, but this has probably happened to all of us at some point. There really isn't a globally understood set of rules on the eye-contact situation in the hallway. Let's figure it out. You're walking down a rather lengthy hallway at work. Someone turns the corner at the other end of the hallway and is approaching. You really don't know this person that well. Do you: A. Make eye contact the whole time and give a...
