    There must be some misunderstanding about the word “condescending”. Everybody knows that Veeble is a veeeeeery, veeeeeery good chief.

    Brutus would never say that. He’d let the Chief walk all over him if necessary.

    This is kind of a strange plot twist. Why is Thornapple still at work in the office? Wasn’t he just fired last Tuesday because the Chief couldn’t take it anymore?

    Most of the employees would rather that Rancid was conascending (up the gallows stairs).

    Bossman gives a whole new meaning to condescending. His tie might be too tight.

    One should always try to be gruntled; being disgruntled is bad for one’s health.

    maybe you should bend down to the ground. Then you can say your words go up to them. :D

    Wow! A lot to unpack on this one. Who had the guts to tell the chief about his deficiencies? And does he really care? Or is he just trying to figure out how to discipline the person who told him he isn’t perfect? Brutus’s look in the last panel is priceless

    We had a suggestion box that disappeared. Apparently, some of the suggestions involved physically impossible acts management should try.

    In the last three panels it looks like Veebs is talking out his rear.

    It happens so often, the employees don’t get disgruntled, they just get re-gruntled.

    Nooooo. Not you Boss. “Though you could be called, an obnoxious , stingy, self-centered, overbearing , know it all boss which could be mistaken as condescending though” are probably the thoughts running through Brutus’s mind at that moment. However, he remembers the motto and words from a song of our era also, “Silence is Golden”…..

    So ‘gruntled’ is good but seems always to sound bad. I’ve been way too hard on myself all my life.

    Yup. That’s definitely the only way some people can get anyone to look up to them.

    Most of the phone representatives that I’ve encountered are condescending and patronizing. Perhaps it trickles down from above.
