We Are Heading Back to This

This is especially sad and weird that no one noticed with the size of cubes these days. I measured mine a while ago. It was in line with size of an average office cubicle; 6’x10′ and shrinking rapidly. The size of an average prison cell is 8’x10′. Go figure. I’ve read propaganda at work about how employees really prefer open spaces and the cubes will soon be a thing of the past. No one I know is looking forward to this. If I died in my cube it would be noticed because of the deafening silence. Or so my co-workers tell me.

  1. I work in the courtroom; think it would make me very claustrophobic to be in a cube.

    1. It’s getting that way with the evolution of the cube. I’m sort of grandfathered in with my cube. But new employees get crammed into cubes that they can barely move in, if they even get one. They fit about 3 people in the space that 1 would be when I started working here.

  2. This is one of the reasons I transferred from inbound service to outbound sales. A bigger cube. My old cube had just enough room for the computer monitor, the phone, and a notebook. I kid you not.
