Asok: I'm thinking of getting a degree in business and moving onto the management track. Is it fun being a boss?
Boss: It's the best! I haven't done anything hard since the day I got this job. I mostly just criticize idiots all day long. It's as if the company is paying me to do my hobby. Speaking of pay, my salary is about triple your pay.
Asok: Is there any downside?
Boss: I had a lot of guilt at first.
Asok: It must have been awful.
Boss: Yes, it was the longest ten minutes of my life.
the boss: i've stopped trying to understand what you do all day long.
the boss: now i use an app that reminds me at random times to praise you or to criticize you.
alice: that is the dumbest thing you have ever done.
the bosses cell phone: ping!
the boss: keep up the good work!
Dogbert: If you compliment your employees, they will get big heads and think they are underpaid. But if you criticize them, they will be unhappy and quit.
Boss: What should I do instead of those things?
Dogbert: Have you tried hiding?
