Without a doubt this is the most perfect depiction of the business world.
I assure you, perhaps not at your particular level of incompetence but most likely at a higher level of incompetence, this exact thing is playing out.

weave: So happy that I've always had a real office door with 4 walls and a door that I can shut occasionally so I can get some crunch-work done and out in time.

I have no idea how people in cube cities can get anything done. All this "it increases collaboration" claims just means there's more opportunity for someone to drop by and interrupt work with some stupid story about their spouse last weekend.


In a previous career we had cubes but the functions were sequestered in their own wings of the buidling so it wasnt too bad.  I could deal with the occassional interruption, and anything work related didnt really seem to break the flow as the brain never exited "technical mode" and entered social.

But (and I am guessing its the same everywhere) we had one or two people who just COULD NOT take verbal and non verbal clues that you didnt want to talk right now.  They would stand there and talk to the back of your head for 10 minutes while you typed/wrote away.  Even "Well that's GREAT but I really gotta get this done" didnt seem to phase them.  Never went to "Get the fark away from me..." but really only because I have better manners than that but damn did I feel like it.

Hopman: Thankfully, I do not have a boss that does this.


Translation: Boss not female.

Also, you are not (a) an attractive woman who is willing to do sex, or (b) the boss or human resource person's cousin, or (c) the wrong ethnicity.
