Submission + - Your cubicle and you

Jimmy Avalanche writes: "Do you sit in a cubicle? Or an open environment where your colleagues are in line of sight? Is there a lot of commotion in your office, bad air conditioning or other annoyances? I've just recently been moved from an open office where we share desks, to a cublicle where I have privacy, but I can't see or talk (read: make snarky comments and quips) to my colleagues unless I stand up. This of course helps to cut down on the noise level in my office, but we don't talk on phones so that's not a big issue. As well as this, I now cannot easily focus on something distant, after staring at my computer screen for a long time. This has helped me in the past to combat eye strain. On the plus side, I now won't have to worry about my boss misconstruing what appears on my monitor as wasting time, and I can even pick my nose, if I wanted to (I would never do such a thing).

How do you deal with your office environment, and what do you like and dislike about it?"

The easiest way to figure the cost of living is to take your income and add ten percent.
