The boss: Your proposal doesn't address the alternatives.
Dilbert: There aren't any reasonable alternatives.
The boss: There are always alternatives! Give me alternatives!!
No wonder nothing gets done around here - not enough alternatives.
"we could lobby the government to give tax breaks to all idiot run businesses"
"I could quit this stupid job and start a new career handing out towels at the gym"
"Or we could use cow chips instead of microchips and save millions"
The Boss: whats a cow chip?
Dilbert: This job would be an example.
