8 Funny Drawbacks to Working in a Cubicle [infographic]


If you work in a cubicle, then no doubt you have experienced your share of cubicle-related trouble. As this EQA infographic demonstrates, all work and no play can have some pretty funny results.

Here’s an interesting fact: Prison cells are actually bigger than a cubicle. Plus, they have a bed. Besides that, you have to admit there’s an irony in the fact that employees are often told to “think outside the box” even though they are spending the majority of their working hours inside of a box.

It’s also important to note that having one power outlet with 23 power cords plugged into (via an extension cord) cannot possibly be a good thing. Another disturbing fact you might not have noticed is that the carpet in your cubicle, which has most likely been there for decades, shows more life than some of the coworkers surrounding you.

Check out the infographic below for more revelations on the drawbacks to working in a cubicle.
