My sister and I were laughing because we both exchanged $100 this year. You nailed it!

@itegem - Well said. I am myself an engineer and have got only traces of that 'process optimization' talent! It becomes a problem only when engineers try to apply their brains to every little thing around them.

For example, think of a simple task like squeezing out toothpaste out of a tube on a toothbrush. A true engineer might be the only person who thinks 'How can I do this a better way?', 'How can I ensure that exactly the right amount of toothpaste oozes out each time?', 'Where exactly should I squeeze the tube to get the best results?', 'How do I ensure that I extract every last molecule of the toothpaste out of the tube before discarding it to the trash?' I do :D

And then there are dates with women too, where the disastrous consequences of true blood engineers have been portrayed by Scott.

What Dilbert is exhibiting in pane two is a concept called as 'process optimization'. It must have been mentioned so regularly in the meetings by the management that the concept has got hard-wired in his brain and he can't help applying it everywhere he goes. Poor thing!

We do that at our house on the actual night of the solstice.
Modern Christmas has become a holiday for the Monetarians and followers of Consumerism.
