Boss: Any comments on the project plan? Dilbert: When you consider all of the tasks together, they form a rational plan.

On an intellectual level, I understand the benefits of breaking tasks into small chunks. But you've left me emotionally gutted. As I read your plan, I'm losing my will to live. Boss: Can't you find meaning in your personal life? Tina: He's an engineer. Dilbert: Now you're just being a jerk.

Dilbert: Maybe you should negotiate harder. Boss: And risk losing a thousand dollars of revenue?
