    A door that swings inward would have a push plate on the outside, not a handle. So… there!

    Usually held in an off-site venue.

    That they are locked up is good! That means you can get more quality work done with less micromanagement.;D

    A few months later they’ll find a skeleton crew manning the conference room…

    The implication of the third panel is that the janitor has secured the door against being able to open. But, the door’s handle is the type that allows the door to pull out not push in. So, the broom should have no effect on locking the door.

    Meanwhile, the company is working better than ever; save for the inept involvement of the PHB, it would have succeeded in ways never before anticipated! But then the door opened…

    You know, now they just might be in there long enough to actually get something figured out. I heard once that everything is interesting if you look at it long enough.

    Remember animated characters live in a different realm. No law of physics, just ask Wily E. Coyote!

    Too bad the PHB wasn’t outside the room. He would have seen the broom and concluded he couldn’t go in the room

    The janitor seems to be management material.

    I like how Dilbert is disguised as the janitor.

    A chair (or ‘The Chair’) through the window would solve the problem (or two).

    Some years ago, three of us flew to New York for a meeting with corporate about a new initiative for our division, which — to our surprise — was approved by corporate with almost no discussion. At the end of the meeting, HR came in, handed us a list of all employees working in our division, and locked us in a conference room (with a restroom off the corner) with just pitchers of water and hard candy, not even a phone. We weren’t allowed to leave until we had done a 15% reduction in force (i.e. listed a specific 15% of employees to be fired, with only their names and the city they worked in for background). That was Friday afternoon. I quit on Monday — saving somebody’s job. I got pushed around a lot in that job, but this was the last straw.

    This is also a prime reason why I hate HR departments. They didn’t have to handle it this way.
