Thread Name: BS: Help! My Job is a Dilbert Cartoon!
Subject: RE: BS: Help! My Job is a Dilbert Cartoon!
Interesting thoughts Joe. It's got me wondering how universal it is. The time I relate to best was when I had the (perhaps silly) job title "ststems co-ordinator" for a UK white goods company. Dilbert painted a truer picture then than one might imagine. It wouldn't however have worked for me so well if I related it to an earlier time in my working life as "car cleaner/ forecourt attendant" and certainly doesn't relate to my current position of "unemployed alcoholic".
I also wonder country wise. It seems clear to me that I as a UK person can relate to what I think is an American cartoon but what about other countires? Is working life, say, the same in Japan?
