Wisdom Wednesdays: Featuring Dr Sidney Wang


Today's letter comes from Colin in St Albans, England. Colin writes:

Dear Wang,

I am a regular reader of this Wisdom Wednesday column and discuss your responses with my colleagues at work each week. However it seems we must now seek your advice for ourselves. We have a new boss called "Gareth" who relocated from the Manchester office and has been driving all of us mad. Gareth cancelled any planned staff holidays for the past two months, reassigned responsibilities and monitors every step we take during the day. I think he has it in for me and my best mate Jules. What do you see in the future for us at our office? Should I be looking for another job before Gareth gives me the sack?

Feeling hunted, Colin

Dr Wang responds: Dear Colin,

Thanks for your kind words about being a loyal reader; it's nice to know I have readers in the UK. I have consulted The Great Bubble Wall for insight into your situation. I spent extra time meditating at the mini-Booda statue to be sure I had a clear psychic channel open to you and your co-workers. I was amazed at what I saw. For example, a guy in your office does not wear underwear, and wants to be noticed. He has a large mole on his ass with an errant hair that is quite long. For your sake I hope he never wears white pants. You should tease him by using words such as "mole" "ass" or even "molasses" in normal conversation wherever possible. This should tip him off that you know about the hairy mole on his ass.

Regarding your situation, I sense that a great deal of fear and anxiety emerged among the staff before Gareth actually assumed his position in your office. You and Jules have been somewhat unfair to Gareth by stirring up angst with your co-workers. Your new boss appears to have good intentions; he is assessing people, positions and processes.

All points indicate that your future looks bright at the firm. I predict that you will be promoted before the year end. Your friend Jules will have to reign in her habits of gossipping at work. Remember, beware of people who gossip to you, for they will gossip about you. I suggest that you take time to get to know Gareth-perhaps at the pub for lunch, but stay away from the fish-n-chips...I recommend the curry chicken.

Keep swimming upstream,
-Dr Wang

I don't know, sounds like their new boss is a real cad. Hope it works out for Colin.

I've always wondered why Betas just sit there in the bowl, staring straight ahead and not moving. They're meditating. That's also why they need to be alone, correct?

One question though.. how does Dr. Wang communicate his responses? Does he type on a tiny keyboard with his fins? Does he dictate to Rick through telepathy? Sorry if this has been covered, it's just all so EXTENSIVE.

Actually Dr Wang communicated telepathically to me, and I type feverishly to capture his every thought. For some further feedback, look at Dr Wang's special posting son June 8th, 10th and June 23rd. These may help you understand how this amazing fish works.
