Another brick in the wall

I already posted a cartoon about my one job. Here's one about the other.

(OE stands for Order Entry.)
All I want to do is draw. But I keep having to go to work. Do I really have to go to work again today? Wasn't I just there yesterday?
Yeah, that's the best I can come up with tonight. It was seventy degrees out today, and warm weather makes me unfocused.

Thoughts on Cashiering

The year is 2011.
Credit card technology has been around for a good portion of this millenium.
If you don't know how to operate a do-it-yourself credit card machine at a checkout stand by now...
you probably shouldn't be out alone in public.
"But Amanda, every store is different!"
Yes, they're all different. That's why you have to read the goddamn instructions on the screen.
Every store may have it different, but you're still an idiot no matter which one you go to.

That being said, the other day I was being reprimanded at work (I can't imagine why!) and I thought, "Hmm, this would make a good cartoon." (This is how I've been coping with the stress of having two jobs - by turning it into something funny.) I want to stress that it doesn't represent a particular incident, the manager pictured does not portray any particular person (I purposely made him look unlike any manager who works there) and this as a whole does not reflect anything I think or feel towards my company. I just thought it was funny. Don't hurt me.

Things I Think About

Do you think spiders are right- or left-handed? Wouldn't it suck to be a spider who is right-handed in three sets of legs, but left-handed in one?

Do you think Van Gogh had an evil twin named Van Stop?

If I had a million dollars, I would divide it in half and donate each half to opposing charities.

The other day I went to a fast food restaurant, and the Dr Pepper place in the soda fountain was out of order. What if somewhere out there exists a parallel universe where everything else is out of order except for the Dr Pepper in that one soda fountain?

I hate bathrooms where everything is automatic. I feel like they're trying to beat me.

And then some...
