    did that to my boy and his friend at walmart when they were younger. Paged them several times, and the last page I got them to say I was leaving with or without them in 30 secs. 31 secs they were chasing the car. (don’t worry I did stop for them) They got the point tho, never had to call more than twice for them.

    Don’t give in Joe or you will suffer Marcy’s wrath for being a pushover and undermining her authority.

    @Jen

    They have to get to school though. Side note: their neighborhood looks like The Huxtables on The Cosby Show.

    I’m wondering about that, too. As a long-time native of the Philadelphia area (where this strip is set), I can’t think of any Philly ‘hood where the houses look like the Huxtables’ neighborhood.

    It’s Philly. Maybe they burned them all down. Remember when the government fire bombed some of the neighborhoods?

    No brownstones in Philly? And the idea that all black families live in rundown ghettos…there’s a word for that kind of thinking. What is it?

    Marcy has to get to work on time. Nurse shortage or not, there are criteria to be met.

    Marcy wasn’t kidding about leaving them.

    You can get to school in a city by taking a city bus…if it’s really too far to walk (what’s “walk”?). That’s called “public transportation”, kids….dig around for your bus pass.

    Yeah, I remember the MOVE bombing very well in May 1985.
    One joke about W. Wilson Goode went, “How many mayors does it take to blow up a city block? One, if you’re Goode!”

    Not all black families live in rundown ghettos. However, the typical inner-city Philadelphia house doesn’t have those steps with the huge masonry side railings. Most have porches with cement steps, and they have wooden or wrought-iron railings.
    My mom grew up in north Philly and was in the Simon Gratz H.S. class of 1947. We went past her childhood home recently and she said that her old block was in better shape than when she moved out in the mid-1950s!

    Most inner-city children in Philadelphia have to use SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) buses to get to and from school.
