Thanks, atsukoarai86!
Unfortunately the comic strip doesn't give the same funny kick when someone actually explains it to you. I mean you'll enjoy it only if you understand it all by yourself. Anyway, I appreciate the explanation.

gah what I meant was "things always get worse before they get better", not "bad before they get worse" ...

sorry...there's a plate of Chinese food next to me... it's....distracting.

lol... dexter, I think the joke is that the expression is supposed to be "it's always darkest before the dawn" meaning "things always get bad before they get worse"...so the boss would have been saying something to the effect of "it's about to get better", in essence.

Instead, he's gone with the tradition of things always getting worse and worse, with no bottom to the abyss of misery that working at this company apparently constitutes. (That's my take on it, anyway)

lololol. GET IT!?!?!?! :D

I am an IT guy and unfortunately I DIDN'T GET IT like Dilbert did. *Sigh*
Still not smart enough to understand ('get') ALL the Dilbert strips.
Get the new Dilbert app!
