Dilbert 2: engineers and knowledge workers

Another Dilbert strip (from 2/4/96), this time with our office hero confronted by his mother (as he often is):

After one evasion and three “I don’t know”s, Dilbert’s claim to knowledge (as in knowledge worker) is severely damaged. Of course, that’s a specialized sense of knowledge.

It’s especially telling that Dilbert doesn’t know what the acronym for the project he’s working on stands for. Probably few people on the project do.
