Now you've used it twice. You can't say 'coolie'. It's a slur. Please stop.

@dlex700 what really happens is that after they say "I'll forward this to the committee" they don't actually forward it anywhere and promptly forget the conversation ever happened. ...that's what I do sometimes to be honest... it's impossible to act on every little suggestion that people have, so in that sense PHB is actually being very kind here.

Scott's comics are not comics. They are a documentary. Not hardly a day goes by where the strips don't COMPLETELY reflect the antics of a micromanaged, management-layers-infested slurry of a cubicle wasteland. Some strips are better than others, yes. Scott is human. They're not all winners. However, you may see mediocre, but to many of us, it's clear reminder and reflection of what we live through. It doesn't take much of a reminder to set me off against my former employer, their double-talk regulations, endless babysitting, and over-the-shoulder micromanaging. We had meetings about spending and wasteful processes, but then delegated a committee to waste time to find the wastes of time, forcing employees to participate, charge it to overhead, complain about the sudden increase in overhead and accuse employees of not participating and cry insubordination when someone speaks up against it.

"Open door policy" is just another self-negating lingo of manager-ese, much like "This opinion-based survey is confidential" (no, it's not), "I want your honest feedback" (no, you don't), and "You employees are empowered" (fat chance).

My boss had an open door policy. The only problem was he worked at a secured contingency location and I did not have the minimum security clearance required to enter the buiilding...

After 3 month of not ever seeing him, I forwarded calls to my cell and took the initiative to work from home.
