I have to agree with some other posters here today -- I miss some of the characters that used to appear like the genius garbageman, Bob the Dinosaur, Ratbert, Dilmom, and Phil, the Prince of Insufficient Light, as well as Dilbert's various girlfriends. I realize that the comic's primary focus is the nightmare of Dilbert's job, but I always enjoyed the strips about his personal life (or lack thereof), too, and those other characters. Sprinkling some of those strips in with the regular rolling disaster of Dilbert's job adds a certain spice and a more complete (if I can use this phrase without sounding too much like a manager or marketer myself) "Dilbert experience." Any hope of seeing some of our old friends again, Scott?
On your weekly reporting you should use as much puffery as you can when reporting what task that are outside scope that you performed.
This is important, so the SubContract company you work for, can take credit for your work. the Company contract manager, can take credit for your work, and the department can take credit for your work, and the division head can take credit for your work, and another department can take credit for your work, and the vice president can take credit for your work. So the results of your work can be presented to the President of the company. And then the sucess of the project resulting from your work can be reported to the shareholders.
Your reporting is very important, there is alot of people depending on you!
(hats off to any company that give credit for their employees work.)
