dogbert: i've designed these over-ear headphones for maximum customer annoyance. the charging port is only on one side, so the user has a fifty percent chance of guessing wrong. and the charger only fits if you put it right-side up. to increase the frustration, i made the plug look the same on both sides. best of all, the plug is so poorly designed that half the time it doesn't seem to fit, even when you put it in correctly. i made the headphones black, so you can't easily find the charger hole in low light. ninety percent of users will be cursing us every time they try to recharge. customers won't know any of this until after they purchase.
boss: ship it.
boss to tina: i'm planning to increase the budget for training by fifty percent next year.
tina to dilbert: he didn't say anything about the other budgets.
dilbert to wally: he didn't say anything about the budget for research and development.
wally to alice: sounds like he's phasing out research and development.
alice to asok: he wouldn't phase out research and development unless he knows the company is failing.
asok to carol: the company must be going bankrupt.
carol to boss: the company is bankrupt.
boss thinking: i guess i don't need to increase the training budget.
