    You have to love Rita her mentality makes me smile every day

    With Ann, Greg is trying to kill the Brad/Toni storyline so he can go back to writing more Tiffany storylines because she’s the easiest character for Greg to write for.

    With Rita, Johnny really hated his job. That’s why he can turn three months into 11 years. There’s a lot of overlap in those 11 years, though.

    Rita is a shining example of the Peter Principle. Get promoted one or two levels higher than you can function at.
    Than wade though life spouting buzz words and re-organizing to cover yourself till the golden chute employs or you can jump to another ship and help sink that one also.

    @Sack of Rabid Weasels

    Are you just guessing? Only Greg Evans knows which of his characters is easiest to write for. Do you know which Peanuts character Charles Schulz said was hardest to draw?

    Charlie Brown. He said drawing Charlie’s round head was very difficult.

    I work with management with Rita’s mentality. I hope I’m never management material

    I actually worked the day job 12 years. Didn’t hate it at all, just moved to Costa Rica. I actually like the “real” Rita but this is a comic.

    Y’all need to stop imagining that Rita is somehow the face of corporate America. If you’re so smart, why is she your boss? Are you saying that she dumbed her way to the top? Yeah, that makes sense.

    Rita is not dumb she is just narrowly focused.

    John, believe it or not, she a character type that actually exist. I witness it almost everyday, that why I love your strip. It gives me a perspective on work that is hilarous. My stress level has gone down quite a bit, Thank you.

    Right-o. When I drew the Rugrats, I found Dill the hardest. Something about his head shape was tough. Chuckie took the longest, with all that hair, and the detailed glasses.

    @Brian Ransom

    Read some of the other comments, including UnKnown VQ’s. Smart is not what gets one promoted. Smart is what gets one labeled a troublemaker. Of course it doesn’t make sense, but that’s how it goes.

    @Penny Robinson Fan Club

    Right. And if a little salt makes food taste good, then a lot of salt ought to make it that much better. The fact that it doesn’t work never deters the true believer.

    @Thomas Scott Roberts

    Not only gets you labeled a troublemaker, but you are then also a threat to other employees who think your work ethic and results make them look bad by comparison. They will throw marbles on the floor in front of you and sabotage you any way they can think of. I’ve seen that in more than one place.

    @phritzg I used to get that myself. I’d point up legitimate concerns, things that were not working right- and that made me a complainer instead of a team player.
