The Dilbert Principle is that your manager has probably never been particular good at anything, and yet wind up in charge, despite being a liability at literally everything.
The Dilbert PHB always struck me as someone who got the position by being "bold" and "confident" and making decisions quickly, never mind whether they were good decisions or not.

I read the book, the dilbert principle, 20 or so years ago. The exact phrasing of it is "The least competent employees are promoted to where they can do the least damage."

My son got up and got ready for school before I even got out of bed, which is something he hasn't done since 9th grade. :D
Is there a girlfriend he wants to canoodle with before class involved? And even if not, will his denials be entertaining for you to watch?

No, he has no interest in that kind of thing, and any affection like that makes him really uncomfortable. (He has autism)

Ah, thank *insert deity of your choice here*. It's after the 29th August. I should never see another advert, or receive another email or text message about bloody PPI ever again.

I had whined that we were having to cancel our Disney trip. Well, it's back on. Wife received a work bonus and it's enough to finish out the trip payments.

I can feel my right hand for the the first time in a week - all of it! I had to make a really potent batch of oil, so I can get to town and buy even more potent flower, so I can make even more potent oil, but I can feel my right hand!

First round of car repairs didn't eat all of my bank account! There's room for splurging on face stuffing over my weekend! Like that local legend Italian place I've never tried.

I've still got right front end work to get done, but if the car can't start, it can't move, and if it can't move, then suspension work is irrelevant.

$75.

That was all the repairs were for the car.

It only needed a front end alignment. No damage to the steering or suspension linkages.

This is only a minor victory because a.) I still don't know who the ##### was that hit me, and b.) the front bumper cover and fender are still damaged, but not to make the car undriveable.
