Since I got back from vacation, my work space has been a chaotic mess. I can’t even see my desktop for the piles of mail, stacks of file folders, reminders on sticky notes and receipts that litter it. Not unlike this guy’s:
So this contest caught my attention: it’s “Pimp My Cube.” Contest Factory is searching for the worst, most pathetic and messy cubicle or office that may have bad furniture, old technology, messy, unorganized, noisy, dirty, dark and/or any other attributes that make it a bad space to work in. Sounds like mine.
