Ninety percent of ethics is picking the right ethicist." -Dilbert More This Is the Part Where You Pretend to Add Value Scott Adams offers up his this "Dilbert" collection exploring themes of sloth and corporate indifference. The arbitrary, unspoken rules of interoffice emailing, the random policy generator, and the knowledge that management has indeed given up ever trying to win an award for best place to work all combine to make life in the Dilbert workplace as demoralizing as real life.
The boss. Everyone has one and all of every boss's worst traits are embodied in The Boss in Dilbert. In I Sense a Coldness in Your Mentoring, the on-going torture that The Boss wreaks on his helpless underlings is played out in full. From a total lack of mentoring skills to clueless budget requests and pointless mind-numbing endless meetings, The Boss makes office life for Dilbert, Wally, and Alice, not to mention his secretary, a living hell with cubicle walls.
If you thought that changing the dress code in Dilbert's workplace to "corporate dorky" would boost morale and improve efficiency...you may be in management. Or just deluded. In this mini calendar for 2018 Dilbert swapped his unruly tie for a badge and lanyard, but his Pointy-Haired Boss still tries to lead by buzzword, Wally keeps working hard at being useless, and Alice just keeps working at keeping it together.
As fresh a look at the inanity of office life as it brought to the comics pages when it first appeared in 1989, this 40th AMP Dilbert collection comically confirms to the working public that we all really know what's going on. Our devices might be more sophisticated, our software and apps might be more plentiful, but when it gets down to interactions between the worker bees and the clueless in-controls, discontent and sarcasm rule, as only Dilbert can proclaim.
