Repost: Things I’ve learned this Christmas season in the cube.

I’m currently on PTO enjoying some much needed time away from the cube, but I thought you might enjoy reading some of my “thoughts” from a year ago.

Funny how many of these repeated this year…I mean literally repeated. And, it’s actually not funny…it’s pretty sad.


  • A “holiday” party scheduled for the 3rd week in January doesn’t count.
  • A Polo shirt with the company logo is a crappy gift.
  • A gift in an unmarked box left on the desk with no name or card who it’s from will be treated as a bomb.
  • Marking an email urgent on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend should be grounds for firing.
  • It’s not appropriate to do a CEO Elf Yourself…and, send as a company card.
  • Employee who says, “I don’t mind working over the holidays, it’s quiet and I can get stuff done.” = kiss ass peon.
  • Giving me the gift of alcohol is the quickest way to earn brownie points.
  • Stay away from the See’s candy gift basket sitting in the common area.
  • Even if it’s billed as a “kids party” coworkers will get very angry if there is no spiked eggnog.
  • HR understands what you mean when you walk around talking about your “Yule log”.

    Well, now I feel I know exactly how I should behave at Christmastime in your office! Not likely that I’ll ever have a cube next to you, but if I do – I’m making an Elf of the CEO and leaving unmarked presents on all desks. That’s it, right?
