@usessimpletools: almost word for word. My PHB was given a stack of mail merged tax form letters to sign (the only thing that changed was the address in each). She insisted on reading each one to check for grammar, spelling, and syntax. I'm pretty sure it was in retaliation for not double spacing after the period in my sentences on a rough draft version on the previous day. I had foolishly responded by showing her the APA website where it stated that modern correspondence didn't actually need that anymore. I figured out my punishment soon enough though when she thoughtfully got me a copy of a secretary's handbook published in the 60's in order help me learn to write proper business letters in future. Yes, it actually said 'secretary' on the cover of this book. No, I am not any form of secretary (though I'd be hard pressed to prove it). I am a 25 year old bookkeeper. I'm almost positive.

Sadly, I think I've used Wally's line just recently. Almost word for word. For exactly the same reason that she was proven wrong about something else. Even sadder, these strips seem more documentary than satire even to this day.
