Publication date: 06/01/1994

Dial 9 to Get Out!

Mixing warm humor, shrewd irony, and penetrating insight, commentator David Graulich gently twits the pretensions of American business and exposes the humorous truth behind the serious facade of the workplace.

Politely pointing out contradictions, unmasking absurdities, and providing badly needed perspective on the awkward situations that abound in business life, the forty-one commentaries in this book offer a humorous view of office etiquette, corporate mores, and more. Treasured as classics by Marketplace listeners, Dial 9 to Get Out! includes Graulich's pointed observations on:

  • the secrets of corporate apologies,
  • those odd little friendships formed in the office elevator,
  • the absurd ritual of the CEO visit,
  • easy steps to becoming a respected guru,
  • the universal nature of the employee lunchroom, and many more.

Graulich's sharp eye for the humor in everyday interactions will appeal to anyone who has ever held a job.

  • Regularly featured on Public Radio's "Marketplace" with an audience of 212 stations and 2 million listeners
  • A wry look at the workplace and business life
