I just realized when looking at today’s strip, that I can’t really relate with either of the characters in this context. I’ve always been self-employed, so I never had to ask for a raise. On the other hand, I don’t employ others, so I never had to think about giving someone a raise. The only thing I have to think about is how high I bid when I make offers to clients. That’s an art in itself, and one which I’m very bad at. Maybe that’s the reason why I don’t have employees! Hmm… Food for thought.
Oh, and last but not least: Don’t do drugs, kids! Drugs are bad, m’kay!
