Did anybody else catch the fact that the first thing Dilbert did after being told to stop being honest was to complent his boss?

Haha, yes, there's a program that would let me do my job much faster and better than I can do it now, but I'm afraid to suggest it to management because we'd have to charge less for our projects and I might not have enough work to do!

Believe it or not, I have actually had this happen before. I was completing tasks at half the time other engineers had been charging time for. This had a two fold effect I did not expect. Management was mad because they could only charge the customers half what they were before, and the customers wanted it done in the new amount of time and wondered why it hadn't before. And the other engineers were pissed because they now had to do it in this new amount of time and their inflation of their charged time was exposed.

The sad part was my time was really not that much harder to achieve. Needless to say, I did not last long there, and neither did the company after I left.
