What Complaining Will Get You

Despite all the exciting things that are happening around here at DOM, I still have my Cube World job. (Because Sallie Mae and VW like to get paid. And because I have a new obsession with art deco jewelry. And this season's boots.)

Although we have signed the franchise agreement, the space negotiations could take months. Cube World is the reality until we sign the lease and begin the build-out.

I have complained to anybody who would listen (and the entire world wide web) that I hate my cube because it is dark and depressing. I complained to my supervisor, the lady who designed the office cubicles, my fellow cube dwellers, the barista at Starbucks.

So do you know what the office manager did? Gave me a new cube. Directly across from my supervisor. Now, when my supervisor is sitting at her desk, she can look right into my cube and see what I am doing. Every single move is monitored. Bye Bye two hour lunches. Bye Bye wandering around Barnes and Noble and Target during the afternoon. Bye Bye Bejeweled. And its not even really a whole lot brighter.


  1. Oh no!!!! Like they say, be careful what you wish for :O(

  2. New Cube that doesn't address the problems of Old Cube is Bad Form. That is all.

  3. That's just not nice! Here's to speedy space negotiations.
    You could always make this in the meantime:

  4. That margarita jello looks yummy. What a great find. Thanks Michelle!

  5. Out of the frying pan and into the fire!
