Sounds like my job on a daily basis

I didn't know mullet boss could recognize or pull off sarcasm on his own.

I come to this site to escape reality, not have my mundane existence thrown in my face.

I would imagine, as the primary goal of the workplace, after "not get fired", is "embarrass the mullet boss", it would be remarkably easy to pull together a presentation that he's going to give, sight-unseen, with no time for a rewrite.

The goals of causing him the publicly humiliate himself coincide quite nicely with scripting exactly what he'll both say and present to others. I'm actually somewhat disappointed this perfect opportunity was not leveraged to it's full potential.

Is it just me or is Mullet Boss getting more evil?

So on target it hurts (to laugh).

Wow. This is enough like my actual life that I'm feeling a little uncomfortable. Now if you'll excuse me I need to go work on my presentation for this afternoon.

Thanks Scott!

So much truth -- in only 4 panels.

Damn ye, Mullet Boss! He's the final boss.

@ arreff: Really? I come here to see a comedic representation of reality, and to have jokes to share with those around me.

Loved this one, especially panel 2, the last line of which will be quoted before today is done.

I hate this 'boss'.

What is in your mouth in Panel 3?

October 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterElvis

Chosen One,

Don't worry, the stage is well set for a sequel.

I loved the World of Warcraft reference, " ..."Achievement Point"... utterly worthless.

I love this comic!

Ah, back to the old grind!

+1 Meaningless Boss Gratitude

Ah, that third panel. Perfect. :)

I just finished a job today. Piping the heating system fot the Air Force Academy dorm, phases five and six. Every time we got ahead of schedule, the boss moved the deadline up. Every time he moved the deadline up, we caught up, and got ahead (repeat) The result of this is that we finished the phase 21/2 months ahead of schedule...and got laid off.
"Thanks for your good work - you rocked the house down! Your team made me, the company, and the whole damn union look great! Good luck finding another job."

It's 'collectible', genius man.
