I knew it was Jenkins, that bastard!
I think I can detect the boss thinking at the end of panel 4.
Scott and Mullet Boss have more in common with each other than either of them likes to admit.
[ To the tune of, "What Do you do with a problem like, Maria?"]What do you do with a problem like ... JENKINSSSSSSSssssssssssssssssssssss ?
Scott Meyer makes me so happy.
GOLD! solid gold!
Jenkins is always complaining about my shit. He better watch it -- Hudson got canned for the same thing.
I love love love the boss's train of logic in panel 4.
in a rare occurrence, panel one is by FAR my favorite this time around. it encapsulates pretty much EVERYTHING about having a boss.
And here I was, ready to blame Kate. Shock ending victory.
Full speed ahead, and damn the torpedoes sarcasm!
*reading through list of names of people working at company, find that the only Jenkins on the list has the first name Leeroy* LEEROY JEEENNKINSSSS!!!!!! *FALCON PUNCH*
I must admit, I enjoy the irony of Scott not taking instructions well.
I love the bubble placement in panel 1 indicating interruption. Had not seen that before.
Scott, we need to talk. People have been complaining that you generate too many good ideas, and then embellish them so much it makes people laugh out loud at work. There must not be laughing at work! That would be unfair...... to people who don't read your comic.
Of course Mullet-Boss gives him up almost immediately. Mullet-Boss loves when people bother him in a way that gives him work.
Hey, the boss used an Interrobang!
Last line of the last panel is pure comic gold. Thanks!
LEEEERRRRRROOOOY, wow rules
I am "mullet boss" at my job, and I have engaged in the exact exchange in panel one more than I can count. This is management gold!
Please tell me that Friday's comic is "How to Confront a Chronic Complainer".
"You mean Jenkins the serial sexual harasser and inappropriate TMI oversharer? Is THAT the Jenkins we're talking about?" Except Mullet Boss probably sees nothing wrong with that behavior. This is all too true.
Never laughed so hard at one of your strips ~ having worked at the bottom of the totem pole most of my career, and now being in a middle-position to have to handle office underlings, I really love both sides of the conversations here :)
Scott doesn't take *instruction* well...THE IRONY
"Apparently another problem with me is that my sarcasm is too subtle."
Damn. I've been unerringly diagnosed. Now I have to make that a bullet point in my next eval.
I like that your boss's thought process is represented by an ellipses, those being used to show the passage of time without notable event.
Liverpool goalie Pepe Reina does his impression of Scott yelling (scroll down):
You Scott might not take instructions well. But boy does he know how to give them! ZING!
Panel 3 is pure gold.
