Cubicle Tool: Dry Erase Board

Dry erase boards are great because they provide an easy and simple platform for communicating exact instructions, thoughts, and requests without directly targeting anyone. From "Please Knock" to "Be back at 3pm" dry erase boards save everyone time and even awkward exchanges. But be prepared to have your cubicle mates to try and have a bit of fun with it. You may want to keep the dry erase marker in a locked drawer.

These are definitely good. I also found it useful to list the projects Im working on at the moment.
For some reason, the juniors at work keep thinking I have a godzillion free hours at my disposal.

Hah, hah. That's a great idea. You should write on the dry erase board the hours your cubicle is "open" so others know when you're available. Sort of like visiting hours!
