DILBERT'S WISDOM FOR THE AGES

Classic, timeless "Dilbert" cartoons are a way of finding refreshment in wry humor-- they never fail to cheer me, at least.  There's just something about Scott Adams deadpan, 'cracked' portrayals of human nature...

 

I can't believe I wasn't aware of "Ratbert" the temp worker, before--  he seems to have self-esteem problems, so maybe he's more "low profile" than the others?

The reason "Dilbert" is so loved--  anyone who's suffered in corporate culture, giant bureaucracies, or just had a plain old horrible boss, can relate.

I loveDilbert , I have a desk calendar that I keep in the kitchen, so I have a good laugh every morning. I never worked in an office, but in health care, but we had a Wally !

Interestingly, "Wally" features prominently in Scott Adams' own top favorites of his work.  I can see why.

Dilbert and Cathy are my favorites!

Re: DILBERT'S WISDOM FOR THE AGES

Having spent the first 26 years of my working life in the offices of large manufacturing companies, I can absolutely relate to Dilbert...in fact, most of us in those offices had Dilbert desk calendars. They are completely based in reality!

Being employed by a large company I can certainly relate to Dilbert..... Will not say more on the grounds it will incriminate me...😉

Re: DILBERT'S WISDOM FOR THE AGES

Agreed, @danedylan ,  it startled me to see that Scott Adams has his characters masked at the top of his twitter feed!  Sign of the times.  Probably muffles a little of the venomous office jabs going back and forth, ha.
