The best thing about the comment section are the anecdotes of people who actually encountered situations like depicted in the strips.

Thank you guys!

I wonder if they even have real specs yet.

If Wally does nothing, the project won't go anywhere, and with redshirt chiming in, the whole thing is dead in the water = the cul-de-sac approach to office politics...

I thwarted a variation on this scheme once a long time ago.

I was an IT contractor and there was another IT contractor who would receive a healthy bonus if he finished his piece of the project ahead of schedule. His piece interacted with mine which, though on schedule, was nowhere near ready to being done. I knew he wasn't done early and he was gambling that he could get the bonus, continue working to finish, and not get caught. I quickly put together an interface that would allow me to test contractor's "finished" modules under the premise that I wanted to start "testing". Suddenly it turned out that they weren't finished and they caught a lot of flack from the customer. On the other hand, it was a win win win for me. The customer appreciated the job I did for them, I saved them the bonus, and I got other work after the project was done (unlike the weasels who tried to steal the bonus).

I smell collusion. Have I mentioned that Wally is my hero?
