Do you ever watch TV shows and see people’s offices and think man, I wish I had thatoffice?
I kind of like my office: it’s okay, a good desk, okay chair, nice computer, lots of decorations and personal touches. But even with that, I find myself watching people on TV and comparing their offices to mine. Michael Scott’s (now Andy’s)? Smaller, not as nice. That Korean gangster on Lost? Way bigger than mine, pretty impressive.
I suppose I can’t help it; even with a nice office, I might want a nicer office, and fear having a worse office.
Then there are those people who have terrible offices; one website I like to go to has “I Hate My Job” posts where people show the awful work conditions they have: desks that are cardboard boxes, loose wiring, tiny cubicles, moldy walls… terrible stuff.
If that sounds like where YOU work, then you might be the winner of the Pimp My Cube Contest – a contest trying to find the absolute worse, most pathetic, messiest, cluttered, cramped, annoying, terrible work spaces.
They don’t want to just point and laugh (the way I would); they want to make things BETTER by taking those worst offices and giving them $1,200 in prizes:
o New high end computer system
o New Desk, Chair and Decorations
o New Entertainment Package with high end stereo, espresso machine etc.
Entering is simple: record a video of your awful office and upload it to contest site so the people at the Contest Factory can watch it, then tell your friends and family and coworkers to vote your office the worst ever. The funnier and better quality your video, the more your chances of winning. The contest will be decided by quality of video, and by votes – so once your video is uploaded, get your friends and family to the site to vote for you.
You’ve got until January 31, 2012 and as of now, nobody has yet entered, so you’ve got great odds. And even if you don’t make the top three can win a second-prize $200 gift card chosen by random drawing.
