    Oh well, different strokes for different folks.
    Ever had 4 bosses at once? I have. Anyway I hated working for a big company and thought the movie was hilarious.

    Actually, I pretty much have a bunch of bosses right now. I interact and answer to the district manager, division manager, product manager and distribution manager almost daily in my company. Oh yea, the customers too.

    Thanks for getting me bumbed out now buddy.

    I got about halfway through it the first time and then forced myself to watch it again to try and figure out what was going on. I never did.
    That movie was so ridiculous I found it funny. I had no idea what was going on.

    No problem.

    Even though I work for myself now I still have to partake in 10 person conference calls that go nowhere, so I'm not free and clear either....

    Well I have and the format changed almost as often as the org chart.
    I guess you have to be an engineer/programmer or work in a cube farm to really appreciate Office Space.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Sure I did. I thought it was groundbreaking stuff.

    Not really, although that may make it easier to relate to.

    To me, it was a tremendous satire on the office culture, and I've never worked in a cube farm.

    The stereotypes were right on for any office or bureaucracy.

    I could relate to it because wether you are in a cube farm or on the road selling, there is still plenty of corporate bizzaro to go around.

    I'll give them that it was a great satire. They nailed a lot of the corporate cliches dead on.

    I doesn't hurt. Especially if you're middle management then you really know how stupid stuff is because you get to see it from both sides.

    Has anyone seen The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada? I was going to rent it. Looks good.

    I'll probably give Syriana a second chance. I found myself confused through parts of it. It's definitely a movie that requires your full attention.

    Syriana is top-flite.
