To expand on the comment of kaffekup:
Scott Adams invites readers to send him their lamentations of office work situations. He is careful only to use those he gets repeatedly from different people, to insure that he does not inadvertently identify the reporter to her/his own PHB. I expect this also insures a better audience reaction since more of them will identify with the scene.

Cordero: I work at a Fortune 25 company right now that so parallels Scott's observations I'm starting to wonder if he has hidden cameras here. I think perhaps you are *vastly* unaware of the levels of mediocrity a subset of mankind is capable of. Unfortunately, my lesson has been that most people who are adept at moving up the management chain are generally more concerned with securing and protecting their pension than actually producing good engineering.

For the doubter, and you know who you are, I worked under a man for seven years and every time I saw him in the hall he would say, 'Hello Phil'.

My name is Rick.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I work in a place like that right now. (So does my wife, in a different company.) Internal empires worrying more about themselves rather than the company's actual goals. Clueless overpaid bosses making idiot time & money wasting decisions. And so on. Maybe you've found a North Elbonian labor camp to work in, but in the real world we're stuck in, Dilbert companies are too common.

cordero, you're not aware that real people in real offices send this stuff to SA all the time? And you've bothered to register on the site, and read the strip daily, and you didn't think other readers would be protective of Scott?
