Don't! Crank the Russian folk music
Headphones, people.

There is no faster way to top "cube rube" status than to crank your music.

"We had one person who was playing Russian folk music all day long," says Megan Slabinski, executive director of The Creative Group, a California-based staffing agency.

The constant drone of Russian folk music got so draining to a freelancer the Group had placed, one of the employees had to ask the company to curb the staffer's habit.

Oddly, management was reluctant to address the issue, reports Slabinski.

"Ultimately, we encouraged them to say, could you please put on a pair of headphones?"

You may think that you are all by your lonesome in your cube, but don't forget about your proximity to others. And if the spirit moves you, and you must have a bit of your motherland's music to get you through your day, headphones, people. Headphones.
