Cubicle Warrior is a term for any of us who work up one day and realized that years of study and hard work resulted in a modern-day hybrid of feudalism and indentured servitude to echelons of middle management. In other words, you did everything right, went to school, studied, bettered yourself, and some how woke up with a bunch of obligations that can only be met by working from 9 to 5 (often much, much longer) in a job that just doesn’t do it for you.
- a person engaged or experienced in the soul-less and inane politics of the corporate American workspace; a white collar, corporate denizen.
- a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness towards realizing dreams of freedom and self-reliance while toiling away in a small space or compartment partitioned off from humanity.
If you have had a moment where you thought, ‘Hey, I’m a pretty smart/resourceful/hard-working guy or gal and I deserve a better life than slaving away for others in a gray, uniform wasteland. Damn it, I am going to do something about it!’ Then you are a Cubicle Warrior.
