So, in cubicle-land you sit near another department, and one peson in that department has a tendency to chitchat with her neighbors in the mornings. She's not intentionally being loud, but her voice does carry, and it's a bit distracting. Do you:
Talk to her directly, politely telling her to keep it down?
Smack her and tell her to shut the hell up?
Go behind her back and talk to her supervisor, thus making him do your dirty work?
Look! *BAM* An undead monkey!
