boss: why isn't your project done yet?
dilbert: because every time i walk past your office you give me three new tasks and tell men they are my highest priority.
boss: i was hoping you didn't know why.
dilbert: hire someone dumber next time.
boss: can you have it done in a week?
dilbert: not if i have to work with other employees. given the galactic incompetence of my co-workers, it would probably take seven to non months.
boss: i'll give you two weeks.
dilbert: that's how long it will take to set up the first meeting.
