Do You Want to Work Here?

A question that everyone going on an interview asks themselves. In the rats maze of cubicles that Econo-Girl works in, she has observed some indicators to watch out for. First of all, how are the carpets? If they are worn badly, then the people there aren't well taken care of. Secondly, are there any plants not belonging to an individual? Plants indicate to me a degree of compassion. Plants in an individual's cubicle indicate that the person wants a piece of refuge with them at work.

Is Econo-Girl jumping to conclusions? As she types out her beliefs, they seem to be a bit quick to judge.

Recently, Econo-Girl has worked at a place where the boss' boss was a young woman who dressed like Adrianna from the Sopranos. The only people who had Dilbert cartoons on display were upper management. Econo-Girl suspects there is meaning in that somewhere. She just can't figure out what it is. Maybe it sucks to be middle management.

I have a 6 gallon aquarium in my cubical.

Due to budget concerns, all the plants on my floor are going off the maintenence plan. The people that usually come in to maintain the plants are going to just look after plants in public areas and the director's office.

If the people on the floor do not water the plants, they will die. And there will be no replacement plants.

What would plastic plants indicate? Fake compassion?

Plastic plants, to Econo-Girl, means that the management wants to appears as if it takes care of its workers, but it doesn't. Usually places that have great rhetoric.
