You wouldn’t be surprised if I told you that IT personnel have some strange items decorating their cubes, right? Because if you were surprised, then you CLEARLY don’t know anybody working in IT.
I took a BRIEF stroll up and down some of the rows at work and collected this little list of some of these decorations:
- Pictures of the night support guy scrubbed in for surgery
- A cordless drill
- Call of Duty 4 poster
- Postcards from across the country (where her coworkers have been while she was NOT on PTO)
- Foam-missile guns
- Matrix poster
- Matrix poseable figures
- Ant Farm
- Computer problem resolution flow chart t-shirt
- LCD picture frames (lots of these)
- A troll doll with bright green hair
Next time I’m here late, when the lights have turned off, the normal people* have gone home and the only sounds are from spinning hard-drives, I may wander around and take pictures of people’s cubicles. There is one in particular that would blow you away and make you wonder where his work surface is.
As far as my desk? Well, I’ve got several different calendars, myriad pictures, some certificates of appreciation, a Get Fuzzy cartoon, an xkcd cartoon, and an x-ray of my toe.
So what do you think? How’s my toe look? Who wants to bring me dinners following surgery?

*normal for IT is sort of stretching it, but go with me on this one
