  1. Bend the paperclip’s tip. Joan, please give me a bobby-pin. View the video on YouTube. Pick the lock on the filing cabinet.

    Keep it a secret from the Yogi; he’d be devastated.

  2. Worker miraculously completes his work in half an hour.

    The boss continues to disregard the document for months before upper management cancels the project.

    On analysis, the worker receives a poor grade for time management due to the recording of a half-hour of time for a canceled project that could not be billed.

  3. Most sufficiently powerful and committed office workers learn that if they pull ***really hard***, they can open locked drawers without leaving a mark after a few episodes of desperation.

  4. This seems to be a question from an interview. Greg is merely making excuses for himself. 30 minutes is plenty of time to lock pick a filing cabinet or call for help from maintenance.

  5. “I don’t want to micromanage you,” my one PM always says, and I think to myself, “bish, you don’t want to macromanage either!” She simply tells people what to do with no planning or help. You might practically replace her with post-it notes describing the tasks on the company fridge.

  6. Everyone is dreaming about picking locks out here. Isn’t it true that most file cabinets have one of six keys? Take someone else’s cabinet keys and experiment with them. One is certain to function.

  7. You drilled the old lock out and removed it years ago when this happened the first time, so just open the cabinet with your key.

  8. I’ve seen more and more comics like this over the years about how soul-sucking office work is. It makes me sad that so many people are stuck in jobs they despise rather than doing what really makes them happy.

  9. This comic is fantastic! It builds the joke, has a hint of a punchline in the second to last row, and then has the “official” punchline, as well as an answer punchline to it, in the final panel.

    It’s fantastic!

  10. This is why my desk is stocked with lockpicks, bobby pins, and a screwdriver. I’ve seen them so many times at work that it’s ridiculous.

  11. After three days:

    “Hey, boss, have you turned in that form?”

    “Oh, I haven’t had the opportunity to review it yet.”

  12. ‘It was on display in the bottom of a closed filing cabinet trapped in a disused lavatory, with a sign on the door warning people to “Beware of the Leopard.”‘

  13. This isn’t micromanagement; rather, it’s a well-defined job with specific instructions.

    The issue is that the job is ridiculous, and the time allocated for completion necessitates the use of a time machine.

  14. His boss overlooked a crucial step: “I’ll be on vacation after you send the form at 4:59 a.m., covered in blood, sweat, and tears. Put it in the shredder right away because it isn’t important in the first place.”

  15. Almost fine, except for the fact that the artist overlooked the fact that the boss has known he needs that type for at least three weeks.
