Which is true, but it's entirely possible that next week you'll be back in
the cube and something wonderful will happen on the job, like an interesting
new project, a chance to learn something new that interests you, or the
opportunity to *create* wonderful new things for yourself, even though for
the time being you have to keep your head down and slog through a pile of
what makes the grass grow green.

If it's truly awful, get out. If it's only temporarily ugly, hang in there.
Taking even a mini-vacation can make a big difference either way, and nobody
can take that away from you.
