boss: i heard you asked our v.p. of operations to be your mentor. why didn't you tell me you needed some mentoring? i'm full of useful advice.
dilbert: such as?
boss: well... not you're putting me on the spot. it's hard to think of advice while you're pressuring me. maybe you could give me a scenario, and then i'll tell you what to do.
dilbert: okay, suppose my boss is ruining my productivity by yammering about his great advice. what can i do?
boss: that feels like a trick question.
dilbert: our v.p. of operations could answer it.
