FROM THIS EPISODE

Just as in real politics, office politics comes in all forms. In this show, office democracies, office oligarchies, office dictatorships, and loosely affiliated office federations. A story by David Rakoff on what happens when you call yourself an editorial assistant, but the editor you're assisting calls you a secretary. Plus, a psychic who specializes in solving office politics disputes, the office politics of New York Street vendors, and how to behave at your boss's funeral, if you hated him and you now have to pay condolences to his bereaved family.
