Dilbert comic-strip today

I simply love some of the Dilbert strips :-)! This is part of the strip which ran today:

I have told this to myself whenever I have to do something at work which I would rather not be doing (like teaching early morning TA classes, attending pointless meetings, writing juvenile documentation for marketing folks etc.) - "Well, at least I am getting paid for doing this" :-))!

Update: A different take on a similar issue :-)!

Prabhu said...

Archana said...

Thanu - :-))!

Shilpa - :-D!

Prasanna - yeah, money matters, honey ;-P!

Prabhu - ah, if only salaries were calculated that way ....

Ginkgo said...

ah...so Do I get paid to read this:-)

Archana said...

Ginkgo - the short answer is, NO! The long question is, should I be paid to write this :-D?

Taruna said...

My take on this is - to do a job you get paid.. to do the job well... well, thats whole other issue..

Prabhu said...

Ginkgo - LOL at ur comment :)

Archana said...

Taruna - that's very true!

Prabhu - well, I defer to Ginkgo :-)!

Rahul Obla said...

Love the first one!....Maybe, I need to take a print out and keep it my office :).

dinesh said...

Prabhu-- if you're right, then I'd be a real rich man now.

Archana - Good one.

spark said...

Nothing even comes close to Dilbert. You should start working for yourself ;-)

Ramki said...

Archana , its funny and reality too.

Saranya Kishore said...

Hey Arch, that was a nice one. :--)

Though I think one is fully successful only if he enjoys what he does. no?
Yeah I know this post was on a light note, and I am thinking too seriously :--))

And Calvin as usual rocks!!

Ekta said...

Archana said...

Rahul - After working almost the whole of this weekend, I think I should do that too :-D!

Dinesh - :-D!

Spark - yaaaaaaa - but who will pay me then ;-P?

Ramki - :-D!

Saranya - that's one way of putting it :-)! But I do not think that a person's success depends on how well they like their job. Complete happiness maybe does depend :-)!

Ekta - :-D!

Archana - :-D!

Known Stranger - you seem to have commented on quite a few of my posts! Thank you for your nice words!
