The Boss: "Laurie's our new engineer. Show her the ropes, Dilbert."
"I meant figuratively."
Dilbert: "This is your anti-productivity pod."
"It's equipped with a little device that rings anytime you try to concentrate."
"The top is open so none of the background noise is inadvertently muffled."
"And you're on the main aisle, so you'll be haunted every minute by footsteps behind you. Step...step...step."
The Boss: "We need to talk."
boss video conferencing with carl: carl, i hired you because you are tall, but now it doesn't matter because everyone looks the same height on zoom. your height advantage has disappeared, so today will be your last day with the company.
carl: maybe instead you could cut my pay to the same level as short people.
boss: that just might work.
