    STEP 1: Click on the options menu and select merge on each assignment you want to merge . It’s easy (or maybe not).

    If he had the experience of a Wally, he would have carefully chosen project A to be a fact finding mission at the movies and project B to be to go home early.

    If Dilbert had half a brain he would have found a job elsewhere a LONG time ago.

    There is a fine art to knowing which assignments to leave on the backburner.

    Yep. I had a boss do that to me. I’d ask him what order he wanted (speak now or forever hold your peace) and he’d refuse to say.If he wouldn’t prioritize then I’d do it and whatever I chose couldn’t be wrong because he had his chance for input and blew it.He’d still be mad but I got to a point where I didn’t care.

    Dil could determine the common element among the two projects, do a project based on that common element, and present to PHB. The super won’t know the difference.

    Request an environmental impact study or mention OSHA and both of them will go to the bottom of the pile.

    In the time you took to talk with him, you could have done the non-essential one.

    Now that’s what I call a snap executive decision. No wonder he’s the boss.

    Like Anon4242 above, I once had problems with prioritizing dictation. The skeleton crew on the evening shift (usually me and one other person) could not possibly do all the work that the doctors marked “priority”. I left her a note and asked her to let me know which work was top priority, then in second place, etc. Since I knew it was a possibility she wouldn’t answer, I added that if I used my own judgment, I would expect her to back me up when the doctors got mad. She didn’t answer, but she always stood up for my decisions when doctors got angry and called in. As an added bonus, the one doctor who prioritized ALL his work (a real PIA) ended up getting a department secretary, so we didn’t have to deal with him from then on!

    PHB resembles a punching bag. So, Dilbert, if you happen to jab jab hook we’ll understand and leave The Fuzz out of it….

    Actually it’s pretty clever advice, coming from the otherwise dim-witted pointy-haired boss.
