Hey, Look

I love the New Yorker.

Twenty-five:
"Hey, look, our boss is walking around the office for no apparent reason."
"Do you think he's just trying to see if we're goofing off instead of doing real work?"
"No, he's not as clever as that."
"You're right; he's not clever at all."
"But he does make a lot more money than we do."
"Yeah, what's that all about?"
"I guess he got some fancy degree in the seventies."
"That's stupid, I could run this place better than he does."
"Too bad corporate America sucks. That's why I love Dilbert."
"Me too! I love it because it's true."

I'm not sure how to read this. Though there is some truth within the dialogue, my gut tells me the subtext's tone (is there a word for that?) is patronizing.
