At first, I was thinking the whole joke behind this comic was that the reader startled Brisbane and Kimberly's pet and made it run away... but then after looking at the finished comic, I could see how people could read... other things that might be going on with the little fella to make him run like that.
Which is the official answers? We'll let you make one up on your own. -Isabel

Brisbane: indecisive. Not weak-willed, but has no idea how to actually DO things. Or any idea what to do.I did that a lot, just make little notes to myself about what I wanted a storyline to accomplish and where the characters were at. I had notes for Kimberly too, even though she didn't really appear here. - Terrence
Ms Taylor: Shrewd. Not training Brisbane for anything, just wants him to be useful. Doesn't show much respect to him. Respects her daughter's ability, but they have serious differences.

The tough part was coming up with a task that was obviously non-productive but not ridiculous. In the early drafts, he was trying to get the company to switch to a smaller size of paper, but that'd be too silly - Terrence
But as importantly, there was no succeeding at this task. Anything he did would have been too large or too small.
Is this a clever test or is Ms. Taylor just critical and difficult to please? Yes. Both. - Terrence

None of that would have stuck. Kimberly would have been demoted. Brisbane would have lost the corner office immediately - Ms. Taylor would have promoted somebody else just to make sure Brisbane didn't keep it.
But Kimberly has ideas. She knows her mother would never give her this chance. Because Ms. Taylor knows that Kimberly has ideas.
