    Isn’t personal information not allowed to be discussed in the work place (unless it’s really a pregnancy)?

    Somehow, I have a feeling that John is going to make this all about him.

    When you are a small business, it is really disruptive, and I say this as a woman. I once worked for a small company and our Marketing person got pregnant, assuring everyone that she would come back. So we all scrambled to cover for her, taking on new responsibilities in addition to our own. Six weeks became 12 weeks became 6 months, and she finally admitted she wasn’t coming back (I think she was as surprised as anyone, and now, 25 years later, she never went back to work). So we went nearly a year without a full-time marketing person. Eventually the company went under, not solely due to that, but it certainly didn’t help.

    He already did. It’s clear he was in a panic because he relied so much on Jean for all the nuts and bolts of running his business. We all know bosses like that. They take all the credit when things go well and blame ‘the staff’ when things don’t work.

    @Ji2m

    It’s called ‘learned helplessness’. Examples abound. We all know bosses who can’t figure out how to add paper to the copier, because they don’t want to do anything other than ‘boss’.

    I’ve been reprimanded for asking this question, but it makes sense to me: there are so many other comics on GoComics and other sites. Why continue to read one that doesn’t appeal to you? Life is too short to spend time doing something unappealing.
