The 10 Cubicle Commandments for a Harmonious Office Environment

If you’re a good little worker bee, then you probably already know that cubicle life is a very delicate ecosystem. When you spend upwards of 40 hours with your co-workers there’s an unspoken code of cubicle etiquette that must be maintained to make sure everyone gets along.

Well, that code was unspoken until now. Every office culture is different, but I’ve laid out the 10 basic rules to guarantee you and your co-workers don’t end up at each other’s throats. If you follow these commandments, you and your office mates will live in harmony.


You can make the most out of your 9-5 office drone life by maintaining a peaceful camaraderie with your co-workers. If you read through the list and found that you were guilty of committing some sins against your office mates, that’s okay. Just be sure to be more polite in the future. Has one of your cube mates been driving you up a wall? Feel free to share this with your cubicle neighbors to drop some subtle hints.

What do you think? Do you have any other commandments to add? Are you guilty of violating any of these commandments? Sound off in the comments below!

    I will freely admit to breaking rule III, but only because everyone breaks rule VI with me! I swears it!

    Thou shall not speak at such volumes that the parking attendant can hear.

    Thou shall not regurgitate every telephone conversation with coworkers.

    Thou shall not whistle while you work. Really, don’t.
