I guess this strip would work with many, many other professions as well. My brief brushes with employment gave me enough insight to appreciate my state of self-employment. I’d be lying if I said I enjoy it every day though. There’s some upside to having a regular paycheck, paid sick leave, paid vacation, not having to bother with accounting and taxes, etc. etc. Besides a reliable, I’d say the fact that I’m always on the job is the most grueling part of self-employment. No matter what I do outside my office, a little voice in my head always keeps telling me: You could be working!

But at least I don’t have a boss! Ha!
