boss: i hired you to predict the future, of our industry, but everything you say makes me sad.
dogbert: don't blame me. i only predict the future. i don't make the future. unless you buy my special platinum level service.
boss: nice upsell.
boss: i'm promoting you to the position of "master engineer."
dilbert: i'm already senior engineer.
boss: now you're a master engineer. with all the rights and responsibilities that come with it.
dilbert: such as...?
boss: well, for example, you can do more kinds of work.
dilbert: for more pay?
boss: no. no. no! you're thinking of "platinum level" engineers. you're not on of those.
dilbert: that comes next?!
boss: optimism is not an attractive quality.
