She DOES have a ponytail! She DOES have a ponytail! And she called him a gentleman when he was only making moves on her! She sees the hidden good in Tommy, and not the obvious signs that he is a drug addicted sociopath.

Congratulations to dear reader KitKat who successfully named the waitress Tina, even if she doesn't have a ponytail. You win a new brop, and the chance to recommend a new record for the Charterstone Jukebox to the condo board. We await your recommendation.

It may seem strange, but Iris and Tommy have the same shared memory of a 1950's prisoner bropping the floor under the menacing glare of an armed guard who insists on tracking his dirty shoes across the wet floor. Clearly, they both hate housekeeping.
I feel an obligation to point out this little gem in the lower corner of panel one:
Be careful. It might be some kind of phishing scam. If Mary Worth has taught me anything, it is that the Internet is not to be trusted.

Jerry will be an excellent boss and mentor for Tommy. Plus, he is a licensed psychologist as you can see by his Stanford degree hanging on the wall behind him. Oh, wait. My mistake. That's his certificate of achievement from the Pretend School of Sandwich Artinsanry and Janitorial Management. The psychology degree is on the other wall.

Very familiar territory. Especially if you've ever seen a 1953 prison movie about a guy who had to mop a prison floor with a really long haired broom, and if he didn't do a good job he'd get shot by the mean prison guard. Yes, Tommy, working at Jerry's will be a lot like that movie

After a morning of Mary Worth's meddling, Tommy is now ready to make a genuine effort to become a contributing member of society, willing to take on any legitimate job. You can tell because he has put on sleeves and he hung a new picture over the couchlike thing he is sitting on.

This morning, when I saw Tommy's tattoo, I thought that Tommy might have gone to Azkaban prison, and perhaps he was a Death Eater.
So I did some research and came across this video recently posted by the kids of some friends and which is quickly going viral. I realize I need to get out more.

This is what we call a "floating head sandwich," which is perfect for Jerry's sandwich shop. And the job as described sounds perfect for Tommy! It has to take at least 10 hours a week. And maybe, one day, after he's done scrubbing a urinal, someone will ask him to help make your sandwich.

Suddenly Wilbur has an idea, "Hire extra help? Here's an idea. Why don't you just switch your sandwich shop from table service to counter service. You could cut half your staff and make twice as much money. Problem solved."
