Escape from Office (case study)
Case study problem : Escape from your office without being detected when you are supposed to be working.
Explanation & problem dissection : To escape from your office without being detected, you must possess the right skills and knowledge to do so. This is often a skill used by those who wanna leave early or come in late to work. Do you have what it takes? If you are a boss, why bother? Here we will discuss the pros and cons of each solution. The ratings for each solution is based on a 1-9 scale with 9 being the best.
Do not attempt the solutions if your office implements an electronic tagging system unless you have a boyfriend(for guys) or les partner who is willing to tag in and out for you to bear the responsible of getting caught. Once again I am not responsible for any misuse.
Solution 1 : Brings bag, water tumbler and coffee mug to work every morning(some people scared the cockroach will poison them overnight ma). Turns on the computer every morning and shuts it down before going home. Cleans the cubicle before leaving and take home what you bring to work.
Rating : 1 (Mission : Impossible as even the blind or tea lady will notice you.)
Solution 2 : Brings bag, water tumbler, own stationary and leaves mug around(not scared cockroach poison already). Turns on the computer every morning and shuts it down before going home. Takes home what you bring to work.
Rating : 3 (Difficult, because the cockroach will notice that you are missing.)
Solution 3 : Brings no bag but started to bring a logbook and a pen. Leaves water tumbler, own stationary and mug around. Turns on the computer every morning and shuts it down before going home. Work place looks crowded. Brings home book and pen.
Rating : 5 (So-so. Cockroach living inside mug when cubicle owner not around.)
Solution 4 : Leaves jacket, water tumbler, stationary, files and and pens around. Turns on the computer every morning and occasionally forgets to shut it down before going home. Work place looks "busy".
Rating : 7 (Getting there. Mr. Cockroach now resides with Mrs. Cockroach in cube owner's jacket.)
Solution 5 : Leaves everything around inclusive leftovers boxex from last month's dinner. Computer is always on. Paperwork everywhere on the desk with bottle and mug no where to be seen. Heck, where is the damn mouse?
Rating : 9 (Effortless. Invisible man in the department. Mr. & Mrs. Cockroach together with their million grandchildren living in perfect harmony with cube owner.)
Bonus solution : Basically stays in office and mates with all the cockroaches. Boss wouldn't even notice because you could be in a bath or sleeping in meeting room(that's what you wants him to think. LOL).
Rating : Perfect 10 of 9(Usually applicable to programmers who are foreign to the working office country.)
Ok! Enough of jokes now. Get back to your cubicle and start work!
