Cartoons: The Office

Published: July 11, 2011

“Ms. Martin, I’ve been meaning to have a little chat with you about your cubicle addition.”

From May/June 2003

Admit it: You’ve known a co-worker who came just shy of this with a cubicle jam-packed with photos and memorabilia. And you just know there’s a little hand-stitched, framed sampler that says “Cubicle, Sweet Cubicle.”

“…and all those opposed to my idea signify by saying ‘I resign.’”

From Mar/April 2009

And we’ve all known this boss. That’s why I say you just have to laugh about a bad day at the office. And a little wine doesn’t hurt, either (especially if you still work for this guy).

“The good news, Harcourt, is that I don’t know what I’d do without you around here—the bad news is that I’m about to find out.”

From Jan/Feb 2009

If the “good news” part is supposed to make Harcourt feel better, I rather doubt it worked.

“We’ll add extra to your severance package if you promise to go work for our competition.”

From Mar/April 2009

There IS something worse than getting fired—being bribed to work for the competitors! Open wound, insert salt.

“How long have you been working here, Gilbert?” “Since I heard you coming down the hall!”

From Sept/Oct 1999

I reached back to 1999 for this one. I think Gilbert may end up working for the competition, bribe or no bribe.

“So this is hell? It looks just like my old office.”

From Jan/Feb 2001

Pretty much says it all. Not about MY office, of course. Lucifer does bear a striking resemblance to a former boss, though…

“You put me in charge of employee morale. If you take away everyone’s million-dollar bonus, it’s going to undo everything I’ve accomplished!”

From Jul/Aug 2007

Put this guy in charge of morale? Let’s take a vote…

    Life and death for so many modern office workers: Going from one cubicle to another. What’s so “Brave” about this “New World?”
    Sorry.
    The guy who buys morale with big bonuses certainly gets my vote..

    Everyone needs a good laugh, espescially at the end of a work day.

    Very funny. Work can be very funny – if you look at it properly.
