Winners of the Worst Cubicle Ever contest

Last post o’ the day in honor of my beloved husband. This one’s for you baby. BTW: I think you possibly could have won had you entered!

The winner — if you can call it winning — of the Wired News saddest-cubicles contest is David Gunnells, an IT guy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His desk is penned in by heavily used filing cabinets in a windowless conference room, near a poorly ventilated bathroom and a microwave. The overhead light doesn’t work — his mother-in-law was so saddened by his cube that she gave him a lamp — and the other side of the wall is a parking garage. Gunnells recalls a day when one co-worker reheated catfish in the microwave, while another used the bathroom and covered the smell with a stinky air freshener. Lovely.

And you’ve GOT to see the photos – That poor man!!!

Read and see it all here.

  1. Oh, you KNOW it! But I’m totally serious when I say my poor husband really could have won. 40-plus hours a week he lives in the basement of a vet school, in a windowless (of course) dank space, staring at a peeling wall, next to (I kid you not) the old animal gas chamber, complete with glass-paned viewing window. The room has a drain(?!) in the floor, where cockroaches frequently congregate for parties. Oh, did I also mention that the rodent cages they parade back and forth in the adjacent hallway also make it smell like the bottom of a (you guessed it) rodent’s cage 99.9% of the time? MMMmmmm. It’s just a BONUS that the nearest bathroom is across the quad and there’s no where to get a drink of water, let alone heat up some catfish. I think next year he’s winning 1st prize. I’ve asked him to take some photos and will post them if he complies.
