英会話ブログ その592     Life in The Cubicle (3)

2015/02/03

The short height of the walls allows easy communication between workers.  There are only 3 walls, because it not only lets people have easy access to one another, but also, given total privacy some workers might "slack off" and just email and surf the net all day !

"Dilbert" a very popular comic which began in 1989, chronicles the experiences of the title character, an engineer working in a typical "cubicle farm" (negative term for an average cubicle-type office).

The satirical comic poked fun at the mindless bureaucracy found in today's companies, and the strange personalities of the bosses and workers.  It can be seen in newspapers, books or at www.Dilber.com.                              (G.K)
