Catbert sits between Dilbert and the Boss with a piece of paper in front of him. He announces, "There aren't enough friendly people to fill our call center jobs." Catbert turns to the Boss and explains, "All we can find are angry people who refuse to put their telephone headset mircrophones near their mouths." A call center operator, with her telephone headset microphone turned completely away from her head, says, "No, I'm sure the problem is on your end."
"First I'll saw open your head. Then I'll replace your faulty brain with a fresh cauliflower."
"How do I know you won't put me to sleep, eat the cauliflower and claim the operation worked?"
"That reminds me: your insurance doesn't cover anesthesia."
