According to my man-card, fashion decisions are not permitted. Rather, we use a check list: wake up in the morning... check, take shower.... check, get dressed... check, eat breakfast... check, etc. That way those concerned wont accidentally see use walking around naked.

It seems I interpreted the strip differently than most. I saw, "I wrote an app" not as conveying that's how Dilbert takes care of his "fashion", but instead saying, "I got something useful done".

My work wardrobe contains almost nothing but black, white or grey attire (or subtle variations therein). This way, everything always matches and nobody, including myself notices repeats. Why? Because spending one iota of time considering what color to wear is a massive waste of my time.

@ G0mMt3 : most of the times, non technical decisions are based on people tastes and can be either "good" or "bad" depending on fashion and the paradigm of the moment. It doesn't really matter what choice is made as long as there is someone to take the responsibility for it (or, more likely, find a scapegoat to blame in one's stead).

That's what management is all about 90% of the time : taking decisions with few if any at all relevant data, based on guts, "experience" and fashion taste and making that stand as THE good one. As long as nobody stands up and claims that another option would have been better, then everything is fine (and anybody with the skills to do so is likeley not to care at all about that kind of decisions, so, any decision, really, is rather a pretty safe bet).

Yes, Tina made 75 fashion decisions before breakfast. Dilbert wrote an app to make those decisions for him. Frankly I am not entirely certain who's coming out on the top here.

"made 75 decisions"
based on what?
female intuition? Datasheets? Recent polls in the coffee corner? And who gives?
I admit I have a major problem making non technical decisions for I never know what will be good enough.
