So many whiners today and no cheese to go along with it. I was doing software QA for a
major software company who sent all the then current project testing to India, including all
test plans and cases thus ending all QA for my division in the US. Asok is is tough and a hard
worker so even being slowed down with a brain worm do well temping in marketing. If Scott
had wanted to be insulting he would put Asok in Customer phone support. Fortunately Asok never did phone support in India so he never would of had to lie and say he was located in Chicago
or Tampa instead of India.
I'm a quality assurance manager. Friday's strip (October 28, 2011) took quite a cheap shot at my profession, but it was still funny because it was a comical expression of a very prevalent opinion of quality assurance as seen by many engineers.
I think today's strip is much the same: a comical expression of a widely held opinion (and relatively easily demonstrated fact) about pollution in India.
