Protecting my cube since 2008
I think that I've remarked that, should the situation arise, I could clear my cubicle of my personal belongings in less than 30 seconds. The only things that I've spruced up my cube with are a couple of calendars ("The Office" for the wall, "Monty Python" for the desk), a Squishee cup, a Black & Blue Classic (the annual UR/VCU basketball game) promotional mug, and a stack of magazines. The latter I will leave for the next person who occupies this space, as they've all been thoroughly read and, uh, "flagged."
And, thanks to MW commenter SBN1/THSE/Simply Reg for the awareness of its existence, I have one more item in my workspace: Captain America Mighty Muggs (or is the singular "Mighty Mugg"?). SBN1 remarked that, when the time comes for me to quit or be fired, I would create a victorious image by having Captain America sit atop my small box of personal effects. I agree.
Most people my age are acquiring mortgages and children; I've got Captain America.
