Thanks for the wishes. Same to you!

YES! Again, as I've pointed out so many times, why would anyone want to do what someone else wants them to do, exactly as the other person wants it (whether or not it even makes sense), WHEN they want it, etc., when they can do whatever they like any time? I mean, gee whiz.....!

Mind you, I CAN imagine someone who totally loves his/her job (or maybe loves his or her own business) wanting to keep doing it, but I'll bet that the MAJORITY of us who have been "in the trenches" (or in middle management -- still in the trenches) are happy as hell to escape all the egotists, Kaizen, ISO and other crap!

Why is "Dilbert" so popular? Because it IS about "real life", albeit exaggerated to be humorous.
