New Laugh-Out-Loud Book on Surviving Cubicle Life

Melanie Lee, Writer from Miami, FL has written a fun and entertaining book about living and surviving life on a cube farm.

Online PR News – 15-February-2015 – Miami, FL – Each year the average worker spends nearly 2,000 hours working. For MILLIONS, those 2,000 hours are spent inside three fabric walls that make up a 5’ x 5’ cubicle, surrounded by a sea of identical cubes occupied by a mix of good, bad and ugly cubicle coworkers.

Since Cubicle Etiquette 101 was not offered in college and employee handbooks have no mention whatsoever on what to do if cubicle mates are stinky, loud & obnoxious, or just plain annoying, The Cubicle Farm Handbook provides solutions!

This 58-page book is full of color graphics, and depicts a slew of employee types that show up on cubicle farms across the globe: The Whiner, The Cheapskate, The Queen Bee!

• The book offers pointers on how to deal with cube mates who challenge your sanity.
• There’s a section on how to avoid pitfalls that can lead to becoming a despised cube mate, like don’t bring limburger cheese or reheat fish in the communal microwave.
• There’s even a quiz to find out where you fall on the cube mate spectrum: Are you a Cube Mate Superstar or Cube Mate Nightmare?
