I hit this the hard way: Having instigated and implemented a new piece of software, I was ignored at a rollout meeting by the client, when he found out I was only a junior programmer, and then asked my boss to explain the benefits. My boss stumbled through the presentation knowing almost nothing about it. In fact I had to correct my boss about a dozen times. The client never once looked at me. When the meeting was concluded, the client thanked my boss for an excellent presentation. After, my boss looked at me and said, "Well, that went well."
Scott sure has a way of picking out business "idiosyncrasies" and making good strips about them. Sometimes he can take the imagery or parody a little far, though, as his depictions of Mr. Handsome and Ms. Attractive, as well as the dialogue here demonstrate... I think.
