Mary Worth 1,062

The panels above are just two from today's Festival of Smugness. What a warm feeling it must give Mary and Drew to picture Liza sitting in class her first day of Sales 101 and realizing, "This isn't working for me."

Today's Full Strip

Now if Mary would just speak to Obama and Boehner I am sure they could balance the budget in no time.

I'm intrigued yet again by the background people, who are far more interesting than Drew and Mary!

We have a woman who looks like she could be Mary's older sister who is "supervising" things and muttering under her breath about "all this computer nonsense"...

And we have a woman who looks like she's reading a map of this architectural mess that is Mountview Hospital. She is TRYING to locate the X-Ray Dept. , but it keeps bringing her back to the cafeteria. Or is that the morgue?
Anyway, the trouble all began with that horrible hallway that is described as an "entrance". (By the way, I hear the architect is a grad of the Local University program!)

I've been looking over the last few weeks' worth of strips, and to the person who suggested a while back that Karen Moy is not a native English speaker, I believe you may be right. Just look at these convoluted phrasings and decide:

So you’re feeling relief concerning Liza now?

Don’t you agree that she may be in her element in sales?

You may have taken the wrong detour at some point. But a bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn.

I haven't read the strip or posted for a week, and this agonizing story isn't over YET????? Mary's not going to feel so smart when LiZa's "persuasive" sales tactics include harassing her prospects with endless texting, showing up wherever they are, and refusing to take "No, thanks" for an answer. Stalkers make great salespeople, all righty.

This just in from Aetna and Medicare...Mountview is offically off their list of "caregivers"

Wow, Drew is really not good at this "being a person" thing.

Darn you Mary, you scooped me. I has just going to press with my new self-help book You're not Psychotic, You Just Need a Career Change.

Next up: two more weeks of Mary and Drew discussing this.

@heydave: followed by another two weeks of Mary and Jeff discussing this! What more could you ask for in a Mary Worth comic???

We could ask that Moy pass the torch to a chimpanzee.

I howled with laughter as Jeff read on his electronic reading machine, Mary asking him questions that he probably knows nothing about (he probably thought she was talking about a patient), and Dr. Drew slinking upstairs furtively to crack open his cache of Men's Fitness magazines... not that there's anything wrong with that! (to borrow Maude Findlay's terminology)

Today, Drew climbs the steps to the tiny unfinished attic. THIS IS A ONE STORY HOUSE!

Per Monday's column - No, Jeff, I don't think your son is looking for a girlfriend while he's still perusing "Men's Fitness".

Unless he's reading it for tne articles.
