    Oops… Somehow, I think that Dilbert’s Uncle would do just that.

    Maybe they should have called him Willbert.

    Just like when someone calls for ‘General Quarters’ … and he never shows up!

    You’d think after 10 times Will would have asked for a transfer.

    They later made a movie about him: “Good Will Hunting”.

    True Fact: I knew a gentleman in the 1960s who was a B-52 check check pilot. He applied for a transfer after on 12 consecutive flights the fire truck was waiting on them at the end of the runway when they landed — he didn’t want to try for “lucky 13.”

    I don’t think he’s anticapitalist. One of his books talks about the crazy stuff he would see on the job. Dilbert is the result of that. Having worked in both business and government, all too much of dilbert is true, particularly since the Boomers took over in the early 1990s. I frequently joke or complain about the third or so of businessmen that are dishonest. Most of them get caught sooner or later. I have a list of stupid business practices in the first chapters of the second volume of National Wave of Foolishness. I even joke about some of the dumbest ones. If one can define a problem, one can fix it. Business is needed by all of us for goods and services, but the sad fact is that many of them make mistakes that leave the rest of us shaking our heads, such as the recent trend to double or triple prices “to increase profits”, resulting in a crash in demand and the business usually failing. Long term profit is good, but the short term stupid greed is killing our economy.
    .
    A classic example of modern dumb practice is today’s boss who rewards flashiness rather than hard work. In the 1980s when I started work, most employers were smart enough to see the flashy persons for what they were and they would often place them in positions where they had to perform. Today, though, seems like most offices have a handful of worker-bees who keep everything going, and it’s the flashy person who gets the promotion. When the boomers took over, it often became subjective measures of work such as “this person looks busy” vs. the actual quality and quantity of work produced.
    .
    The most fun one was “women’s intuition.” I’ve never seen it to be correct. I’ve known female supervisors who were very observant of others which is not intuition, but the “I like him”, “I don’t like him” of the first impression or even after weeks on the job, was always wrong. The best workers were normally the ones that the “intuitives” didn’t like because “women’s intuition” is entirely based on subjectives rather than observation.
