Shoot, I've been a SME for years for lots of subjects. Some of them I didn't know anything about. As long as you answer questions, even if you're making it up as you go along, people will stand in awe of you. I've gotten lots of business trips out of it. Wally could probably get a raise if he worked it right. I'm a government drone, so they don't pay me extra for what they think I know, but the travel is great. And it's a real ego boost to have people begging for help.
Na, more like a corp. Massacistic Verbal torture session, whereby someone steps into a role they are hopelessly underqualified and/or too lame to preform for whatever reason. Hence, anything that might have been mistaken by you for pleasure - should have their banefull/painful alt . definaitions applied instead.. Besides, no-one is naked in that room anyway,... lolz....
And as for wally, if I where PHB at least trying to do the "boss" part of the job, at least even semi-honestly - Wally would have been terminated for insubordination, waist and sloth a long time ago... robot arms with a coffee mug would have been a prominate feature in my complaints to HR, sent down strenuiosly until it was acted apon. But then, PHB would have to be a whole different critter if he behaved like me in a boss mode anyway - so it makes little difference.
The best dilbert joke of the day is not in the comic strip, it's in the animation section, though it takes chance to see it. They started putting ads before the animation (fine with me if they choose so) which is apparently random so you get another one each time. So what happens is that I'm clicking to get a dilbert animation and getting greeted with a Scientology ad. I think the irony needs no further explanations. I mean what's next? An ad from the Elbonian ministry of science for exciting new Elbonian high tech jobs openings?
