I mentioned this in the last comic, but Dilbert has been really speaking to me lately. You guys don’t even know….sure, there is a fair bit of exaggeration, but there is always truth in hyperbole.

I just hope that if I ever become management, that I can actually be a good leader and to trust my subordinates.

But let’s talk about the Oscars for a second. How is it possible that the accountants/producers of the show not step in much sooner? It’s just like management to only act when they have to, right? And even still, they might just let someone else do the dirty work and take the credit.  Like, why did the La La Land dude be the one to make the announcement?

Is there something oddly satisfying about data entry? What about data management? I mean, at some point everything starts to run together. And every time that happens, I think about this.

Growing up, Dilbert never really made much sense to me. But now that I’ve spent some time working in a couple different different industries and on different types of projects, it makes too much sense. Why is the workplace like this?

In our neighborhood, there is a dumpster next some bushes. Whenever we walk the dog by there, we joke around that there is a rat named Trash Can Sam who lives in that dumpster. So, I figured what better way to introduce a new animal character than to have the dog discover someone. So, I wrote the script, but never made the comic.

A few months later, we walk the dog by the bushes and dumpster and the dog starts sniffing around. Suddenly, we hear some interested barking and a lot of startled squeaking. And out of nowhere a giant rat scurries out of the bushes and makes a mad dash along the sidewalk for the safety of the dumpster.

Folks, I predicted the future.

The real life version of this cat is always trying to escape. What does he hope to find outside? How will he deal with it? Everything outside is so alien.

I can’t believe it either. But rather than wanting to do more, I just want to keep resting. Feel like I can’t get enough of it. Oh well.

However, today is Mardi Gras. So, you should definitely go out and do something. #yolo

Conducting interviews is the worst. I can certainly ask questions and “get to know” someone, but when it comes down to deciding who is right for the team, I have no idea. Does it always boil down to gut feeling? Am I forgetting to consider all the factors?
