Life in the Cubicle Village

A story we came across this morning outlines a new set of rules for an office in New York:
Among the no-nos:
Deep-fried foods are strictly prohibited at get-togethers for health reasons -- and no eating at your desk.
Employees must avoid wearing any product with a "noticeable odor" -- including perfume, lotion and cologne.
Cell phones must be set to "vibrate" -- no ringtones allowed.
Do not shout over cubicle walls -- send e-mails instead.
Avoid any displays, photos or other personal items that may be offensive to others. No non-work related items in the workspace.
The pamphlet goes on to get very specific about certain details -- popcorn must be air-popped, bagels and muffins must be cut in halves or quarters, and only one dessert portion per person at catered affairs.
