dilbert: our ceo will be visiting the office tomorrow, so act busy. and don't look directly at him because i don't want him to see how dead your eyes look.
dilbert: can we ask him questions?
boss: no, nothing good can come from that.
dilbert thinking: looks like it will be another full day of interacting with people i wouldn't pull out of a burning car even if i were made of asbestos. my only hope is to stay busy doing mindless tasks.
dilbert: do you have any mindless tasks for me?
boss: take one from the top of the pile.
