One of the oldest engineers, Wally was originally a worker trying to get fired to get a severance package. He often carries a cup of coffee, calmly sipping from it even in the midst of chaos or office-shaking revelations. He is even more socially inept than Dilbert (though far less self-aware of the fact), and references to his lack of personal hygiene are not uncommon.Like the Pointy-Haired Boss, Wally is utterly lacking in ethics and will take advantage of any situation to maximize his personal gain while doing the least possible amount of honest work.Squat and balding, Wally is almost invariably portrayed wearing a short sleeved dress shirt and tie.
The main character in the strip, Dilbert is a stereotypical technically-minded single male.Until October 2014, he was usually depicted wearing a white dress shirt, black trousers and a red-and-black striped tie that inexplicably curves upward; after October 13, 2014, his standard apparel changed to a red polo shirt with a name badge on a lanyard around his neck.The unnamed, oblivious manager of the engineering division of Dilbert's company.Scott Adams states that he never named him so that people can imagine him to be their boss.The comic strip originally revolved around Dilbert and his "pet" dog Dogbert in their home.
Many plots revolved around Dilbert's engineer nature or his bizarre inventions.If I am wrong, or can be proven wrong about my concern, then I will stand corrected.But until then, the timeline I have been able to put together shows that Barack Obama chose to finish writing his book instead of being with his mother.Adams himself wrote that "He's not sadistic, just uncaring".His level of intelligence varies from near-vegetative to perceptive and clever, depending on the strip's comic needs.The delicate balance of computer time and real life and real things to do is no easy task.
