How to Handle Personal Conflict

I'm touched at how many of you use my Amazon Affiliate links  (USUKCanada). While it costs you nothing beyond the regular cost of the item you're buying, it does demonstrate that you thought of me, and that idea's not lost on me.

Again you make panel three the best of the four!!

Does the company have any more customers besides this angry guy? I suspect he's really angry because for some reason he won't take his business elsewhere.

Been there, suffered through that.

Beautiful. It's heartwarming to see Scott winning at work.

Apologies, but I feel this comic is extremely sub-par. I feel that you have written something nearly identical to the second panel before, and I didn't understand panel 4 at all.

How appropriate; last night I reread "How to Deal with an Angry Customer" in "Curse of the Masking Tape Mummy", and this morning the angry customer is back.

If you haven't read the strip in a while (or ever), check it out. It's pure gold:

Another knockout in panel 3! If talent worked like it's supposed to, Scott would be neck deep in vast riches.

THE client? He must be paying them a boatload of money to keep all of those idle half-wits employed (present company excepted, Scott)

Can you add Amazon Affiliate links for Germany and other European countries, too? I think you may have fans there :-)

Been suffering quietly over here for some time. But I can't hold it back anymore.

What is it that your character's company does? (nothing, I know - then let me rephrase: what is it that the angry customer pays you to do?)

Ah...how I do wish that I accomplish this sort of revenge. Yet, I just can't shake the feeling that I would still lose somehow...

August 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAC

Is this a rerun? Super funny of course but I know Ive seen that second panel before.

August 13, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterhwuu

@Slappy - I refer you to the very first line of dialogue: "The Client."

August 13, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCzernobog

I was just wondering... is this guy the only client? He's always referred to as "the client" as if there were no others.

And what, exactly does this company do?

Hilarious strip today.

Mullet Boss scores!

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLeeTron

I have trouble believing anyone this century still has hair like Scott's boss. He looks like he stepped out of a band that's still desperately hoping to open for Queen.

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterResuna

I don't understand how the last line "So do I." in panel 4 fits as a response to the client's conversation. I keep re-reading, but I just can't seem to make sense of it.

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTomNC

I think the last line, "So do I" (in reference to Scott being satisfied with what he has done), is letting us know that, even though he enjoyed causing problems for his boss, he's also aware it could cause bad repercussions, leading him to realize later it wasn't worth the fun; in that event his satisfaction would ebb and panic over losing his job (i.e. if the company's single client were to finally say he's had enough and leave, or were to successfully sue and bankrupt the company, etc.) would take over.

August 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterboB

Scott hopes he will be satisfied by seeing Mullet Boss brought low by the Angry Client's lawsuit, TomNC.

August 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFilthy McMonkey

What does he do? Isn't it obvious? He's a govt contractor!

August 15, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSUBMIT!

I took the last line "So do I" to mean Scott hopes he egged on The Client enough that he really would sue. Scott was basically just adding fuel to the fire in that last panel. Got a good laugh from the 3rd panel, especially :)
