FAQs

I’m getting a few interesting questions I thought I, as Living Dilbert, should clarify!

1) Are you for real?   Unfortunately for me, yes.   I really am an Office Administrator at a law firm in a big city and I work with selfish buffoons.  

2) What’s with the header picture?   Is that you?  Uh…no.   I like to think I’m not far off from that picture (I wear cool glasses though), but Living Dilbert MUST keep her identity a secret.  If Bad Bosses discovered that I am writing about them on a daily basis and exposing them for what they are, I’d be fired immediately.   I can’t afford to get fired and the job market is not quite good enough for me to skip this place.   I do, however, keep my desk cleaned out lately just in case.   I sit and wait to be “found out”…but I hope I am NOT!

3) Do these things really happen at your job?  YES!   I do not make anything up, nor do I even exaggerate.   It is what makes this so funny…in a sad kind of way.   These things happen every week!

4) Why do you blog every day?  Well, I guess I have a lot to share.  As a former legal secretary for a long time working for very anal attorneys in a huge law firm, I learned quickly to be pretty disciplined and organized.  I vowed to blog straight for 30 days when I started this to see how it went and lo and behold…I’m on my 3rd month and the ideas keep flowing.  I thought it might be cool to do a “Tomorrow – ” theme each day and I’ve managed to stick with it.  I jot down a lot of ideas as they come to me or each time something ridiculous happens so I can keep the flow.  It is fun to write the next day’s blog each previous day..gives me time to edit and think up fun pictures.

5) Have you really lost 15 pounds?  Yes…which his hard to believe myself.  I was not too big to begin with and Bad Boss is always making me angry…so, it has been a tough battle and so far I’m winning!  

If any of you have any questions about Living Dilbert…send ’em on and I’d welcome them!

      I think it’s wonderful that you secretly write publicly about your bad bosses. What a great idea! I hope you don’t get caught 🙂

    That header picture is the bomb. Seriously. And up until now I did think it was you. Thank God for the FAQ! 🙂

    You and I operate the same way – secrecy is essential!

      Every day I brace myself for if he finds out! When he goes into one of the other partners’ offices and closes the door, I get ready to put my remaining few things from my desk into my bag and RUN! However, if it comes out….he’s only brought it on himself! Honestly, I packed my desk a while ago…just in case!

    wow you must really have amazing willpower to have lost 15 pounds, especially in the toxic place you work at. For me I just caved in and had my comfort food every night. It was the only thing I looked forward to. Loads of hotdogs cake and other crap.
