I can relate to this, although perhaps not the most laugh-out-loud strip.
My manager blow his cool, when I explained how I hadn't completed anything last week, because I'd been buried in incompetent specifications. "You should have done this..." as if that was possible without hindsight.
- I wasn't using a work avoidance strategy, like Wally might.
These management types, seem to think you can glance over a specification in a few seconds and know if it is adequate or not. I had cow-orkers that would explain in painful detail how to do something simple and unimportant, then completely gloss over something important.
