Asok stands behind Alice's desk and says, "I am young and inexperienced, so please excuse this naive question, Alice . . ." Asok continues, "You spend hours every day 'doing e-mail.' How does this contribute to net after-tax earnings?" Asok stands behind Dilbert's desk and says, "Today I learned that Alice can stuff my entire body into one shirt sleeve."
Boss: You complained about your work load, SO I hired an inexperienced guy to help.
Dilbert: This is exactly the opposite of what I wanted.
Boss: He doesn't know much, But he makes up for it by asking lots of questions.
Dilbert: So He'll be bugging me every minute?
Boss: Not every minute. He takes a lot of sick days.
Dilbert: So....you hired a guy who is useless, But its okay because he also has bad attendance?
Boss: Its not a perfect world.
Is this a good time to ask some questions?
