Saddest Cube Giveaway

Day after day, you work your fingers to the bone, but does anybody care?

Woot does, which is why we want to make your drab, pathetic cube a little better with some crap!

Three lucky "winners" will receive Hang in There posters, a stress cupcake, a mini-Newton's Cradle, a slightly-belated Worst Case Scenario calendar, some earbuds to drown out the suffering of coworkers, and the coup d'grace: a red Swingline stapler.

To enter: Send an email with "Saddest Cube" in the subject. Tell us why your workspace is sad, or send us a picture! Posting it here would be cool too, but it's not necessary.

When: Begins at 10:01 p.m. (PT) on February 18, 2013 and ends at 10:01 p.m. (PT) on February 20, 2013

Make sure to read the legal mumbo jumbo below!

Do computer desks count as cubicles?

If not... I'm going to get some cardboard boxes someday.

POSSIBLY THE BEST BoC THREAD EVER. (With a story!~)

I don't have a cube either, I get to walk around and smile at strangers all day long.

My cubicle used to be the storage corner for the IT department before I was hired on. I found newspapers for 1992 back there when cleaning it out for my use... a lot of VHS tapes too...

In all the other contests, they posted the winners real names, not their woot name.
So unless the winner posted saying "I won! I won!", there was no way to link them to their woot name.

This is my home cubicle, and what's sad is that the agency I telecommute for doesn't give their disabled workers raises...

I've put in 3 years @ a lousy $9/hour!


Technically, the glass is always full.

You say 'email us', but don't give an address. Should I pick a random woot employee to fire the email off to?

First the view from the desk. Yes, desk. Office. Professional workplace. Creepy Effin Santas.



Next the veiw of my desk with the contraption behind it. There are angels and dried noodles in it. DRIED NOODLES! *save me* Please.



Oh by the way if I never order again, it's because that big crack you see in the wall has given way and the upstairs has come crashing down on me.

Have I asked for help yet?

I work in a secure facility so I can't get a picture of my workspace without spending many years in a federal prison. I can, however, describe it to you... It is a standard 6' x 6' layout made of generic Hayworth partitions and desktops. I have my laptop in a docking station with a second monitor beside it. In the corner is my classified machine with dual 25" monitors that are completely plain except for the bright red security stickers on them. To the right of that is my 'desk' which contains a tissue box and a note cube. There is a corporate fiscal calendar on my wall and a guest chair under my whiteboard (which is completely blank every night when I leave). I desperately need wootcrap to jazz this up as long as there are no recording or data devices involved.

My desk was super clean when I got to work this morning. My desk explodes along with my day. I am Mr. Fix it, Mr. Change it, Mr. Find it, Mr. Make it, Mr. Modify it, and Mr. Broke it all in one.

Are you trying to attach a photo maybe? It says it's due to content. You only need to email in and follow the directions for the subject line. No attachments necessary.

This is my cube. I once was part of a 3 man team, that due to the economy I am down to only me and the boss, that works out of the office. I now do the Secretary job and my job. The boss is rarely here, he works mostly out of his home where his wife is sick. He gave away the fridge and microwave to his grandson because "nobody uses them anymore" even though I did, but he didn't care. So that is my lunch sitting on my desk. My office chair is broken, but it is still better than any other chair here. I dont have a drawer to hide any of my stuff, but its ok, I'm the janitor around here. I don't know what is sadder my cube or this whole place.
