I’ll be honest with you, the second to last panel is pure fantasy. In real life, I said something boring like ‘there’s a lot of people in my community who would strongly disagree with those views. Anyway, let’s talk about something else’.
This kind of wears me down more than a lot of other things. I am strident and shrill and loud and angry and all those things that annoy the fuck out of assholes unless that asshole is someone I need to work with to help me pay rent.
Anyways, this is months and months ago, and that particular client is well behind me. Good riddance.
