The boss: I don't think I have your full attention. Alice: It's Asok's turn to listen. If you say anything useful, he'll send us an instance message. The boss: He's asleep. Alice: He's employing heuristics.
boss: i can't give you a good performance review because you haven't performed up to expectations.
wally: do you even know what my job is?
boss: of course i do. you're an engineer.
wally: yes, but do you know what projects i'm working on?
boss: well, various things, and some miscellaneous things too.
wally: how can you determine my job performance when you don't know what my job is?
boss: have you heard of heuristics? you're bad at everything i've observed, so i assume you are bad at everything else as well.
wally: you should have started with that.
