The shoe is on the other foot for Dilbert creator Scott Adams, since his second restaurant, Stacey's at Waterford in Dublin, has hopped the crazy train to financial ruin. Now the man who made unbearably out of touch, rule-crazy bosses into a national obsession is faced with the ultimate cruel irony: he has become the unbearably out of touch, rule-crazy boss.
Thankfully, Adams seems aware of just how close to becoming an asshole he actually is, and has taken steps to avoid resentment among his employees. Here's what Adams' head chef has to say about his bosses leadership:
"I've been in this business 23 years, and I've seen a lot of things. He truly has no idea what he's doing."
I just know there's a Stacey's waiter out there somewhere working on his own comic strip. Dilberts within Dilberts, man. Trippy.
