"May I move to one of the empty cubicles?"
"Those are full-size cubicles; interns get half-size cubicles."
"Yes... ordinarily, but there are hundreds of vacant cubicles because of downsizing."
"I'm not following you."
"They're EMPTY! They will never be occupied. I want to use one."
"We don't have the budget to turn a full-size cubicle into a half-size cubicle just for you."
"GAAA!!! That's not what I... never mind! Forget it!"
"Furthermore, I do not believe this is a half-size cubicle."
