boss and dilbert communicating on video conference call.
dilbert: let's schedule a follow-up call. do you prefer zoom, FaceTime, signal, WhatsApp, or voice call?
dilbert: how about next tuesday at 10 a.m. my time, which is 1 p.m. your time?
boss: i'll be on the road then, so you 10 a.m. will be my noon. but that's after the time change.
boss: and i can't remember if i'm going to a place that change their clocks.
dilbert: why don't we skip the whole thing because the call we are scheduling probably won't be any more useful than this one.
boss: let us never speak of this again.
