Today’s comic is Dilbert.
“Alice, I want you to interview a job candidate. Let me know what you think.” – Pointy Haired Boss to his employee Alice
The job interview.
“Why did you leave your last job?” – Alice asks the job applicant an important question
“I punched my boss.” – Applicant’s honest answer
Alice telling her boss how the meeting went.
“He’s exactly what we need.” – Alice to Pointy Haired Boss
What is going on?
Punching (hitting) your boss or anyone is a bad thing to do. Pointy Haired Boss is mean and incompetent. However, this comic is funny because it shows that everyone hates Pointy Haired Boss a lot but they do not want to do anything about it themselves.
Instead, when given the chance, they would rather hire someone that will punch their boss for them.
