Adams strikes back: More drunken lemur Dilbert toons

“Why does it seem as if most of the decisions in my workplace are made by drunken lemurs?”

“Decisions are made by people who have time, not people who have talent.”

“Why are talented people so busy?”

“They’re fixing the problems made by people who have time.”

One single post on this blog has received more traffic than any other: Man fired for posting ‘Dilbert’ comparing boss to drunken lemur. Back in December, I posted a snip from the Des Moines Register on how casino employee Dave Steward locked horns with his managers about a posted cartoon. Cartoonist Scott Adams even commented on the absurdity of the situation on his DilbertBlog.

This week, Adams did more than muse on it – he actually has Wally experience what Steward did. Of course, Adam’s version is funnier. Check it out:

20-Feb-08: Pointy-Haired Boss, “Our surveillance cameras caught you posting this anti-management comic on the wall.

21-Feb-08: Catbert, “You won’t be eligible for unemployment benefits unless you can prove you were stupid as opposed to malicious.

22-Feb-08: Wally, “The company will be fine without my secret and exclusive knowledge of critical systems.

23-Feb-08: Dogbert, “Would you say you worship Satan, or do you simply respect his no-nonsense approach to discipline?

The Dogbert Gazette Des Moines Register also has a follow-up story.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
