    There are two comics on this website that I love the most. This one and Calvin: reason being that I can read and re-read; I love going back several days and reading the comments that weren’t there when I first read the strip. There is so much philosophical insight by the commenters!

    So true about the comments, JoanHelen, and thanks for putting “Lila” is great company with Calvin. You made my day :-)

    But I really really really hope Lila makes progress so she doesn’t get fired. I want her to be a good parent for Annie. I realize that takes the strip in a new direction but so what?

    JWF – Must add my compliments on a superb strip: fresh, funny and wonderfully narrative. Never know where you’re going. Such inventive twists and turns.

    I keep wondering why Lila is not “Mrs Wiggins” to Mr Pain’s “Mr Tudball” (Carol Burnett Show).

    LOVED that sketch on Carol Burnett!

    Here we see the dark side of “mentoring”.

    What I really like about “The meaning of Lila” is that the characters are evolving (back and forward, as everyone else). That’s different from other strips… and JWF keeps this funny and entertaining.

    I’d really love that Lila goes trough different jobs so she (hopefully) understands a little bit more of life… without leaving lattes, stillettos and cleavage behind.

    But any road this strip takes, I’ll follow.

    Thanks John and L.A. Rose

    Love it. Though being the boss’ favorite is hardly limited to females.

    Thank YOU, Fer Lefer. I’m blushing…really…and not because you used the word, “cleavage.”

    What an interesting dynamic. Drew is Lila’s friend but also her manager. But then, Payne is the boss. He likes Lila. So Drew needs Lila to shape up (probably in part because Drew is judged on the aggregate call center numbers). But Drew has nothing with which to threaten Lila.
    Time for Drew to get out that most important stick: peer pressure. Subtly telling other employees that they have to pick up Lila’s slack—including Boyd—would cause the office to slowly move from “Oh, that incorrigible Lila” tolerance to “Time to shape up, Lila.” If you can’t threaten employment or salary, change the environment.
    I’m enjoying this arc!

    People think I’m my boss’ favorite and instead of being a slacker like most of my colleages I’m expected to do my job and everyone elses. Being a great employee is definitely a double edged sword.
