    Of course this is a pre-cellphone cartoon, but who wears a watch now, unless it’s worn as jewelry.

    @ellisaana. In reply to “who wears a watch now”. I DO! And not everyone uses a cell phone or carries one with them. I’m in my mid-50’s — why would I want to dig a phone out of my purse to see the time when I could just look at my wrist? :)

    When you’re in a NY subway, your cellphone won’t work, so you will need a watch.

    I wear a watch. Battery lasts a year or more.

    This was a good strip today but it seems we ought to have gotten a Father’s Day one. As much as we pick on John he is a pretty good father.

    Lots of folks, I am not going to go digging for my phone every time I want to know the time and I DO NOT have my phone attached to my hand.

    Jewelry store explanation was really interesting. Please include more when the occasion arises.

    I have a cell phone that I use to answer calls when I’m out… but not while I’m driving… then, I call the person back once I’m parked.

    I have a watch that’s mechanical — it winds itself keeps excellent time, gives me the date, and is water resistant so I don’t need to take it off when I swim or shower.
    .
    Works well for me.

    So, what so special about John. He is just like most Fathers today—always there when needed for advise on how to keep automobiles running but for NOTHING else and forgotten on Father’s Day while Mom on Mother’s Day gets long distance calls and cards and trampled by granddaughters who barely acknowledge grandpa’s presence.
