Plugged

scenes from the cube farm

We sit back to back
Earbuds in place, volume cranked
No interactions

Eveyone's tuned out
There is no iPod in Team
Office is silent

The silence must be kinda nice, Lulu; my own office sounds like a collision between half a dozen debating societies. I sometimes wish they'd all shut up.

Sounds a bit like sci-fi doesn't it?

Drones just carrying on their work as a collective unit.

OMG - it's the Borg!

What kind of music keeps you motivated?

I prefer some noise
I find silence unnerving
even when I sleep

Yep, we've been assimilated. I don't listen at work. In the car I listen to rock at ear-bleeding volume. At home it's the college classical station. Go figure...

What more can I say. This is a great observational haiku. I love it. :)

Our small office is always full of chatter and laughter. No ipods allowed unless the music is to be shared.
