    I have a manual trans Volvo. Had the clutch replaced 4 years ago at 173K miles. It is an expensive repair. I am still paying for it. But I would never drive an automatic.

    There is nothing more important than historical preservation. Nothing. There will always be more people but once a historic building is gone, it is gone forever. This comic angers me because historic preservation is not a joking matter & John belittles Elly’s concern for it.

    I wouldn’t want my fiancĂ© to have any preconceived notions about what he wanted in a wedding since I have had mine planned to the last detail for most of my life. If I ever get married, it has to be EXACTLY as I want it. The groom is interchangeable but the wedding details are not!

    If Irving did have any ideas, Cathy, like most women, would ignore them & do what she wanted.

    Everyone saying adoption is forgetting that a woman who doesn’t want a child may also 1) Not want to let her body be used as an incubator, with all the attendant changes & risks & 2) May not want a biological child of hers out there if she doesn’t want it herself.

    Pregnancy is a big deal. It takes a toll on the body. Also, some women who want abortions may also not want people (such as their employer) to know they got pregnant. They may not want their classmates or teachers or parents to know (if they are still in school).

    The majority of women who have abortions already have children. Often, it’s not just that they don’t want another child to raise, they don’t want to go through another pregnancy.

    You are all acting like it is no big deal to simply incubate that fetus, give birth, & then go back to your old life.

    NO-ONE has the right to FORCE a woman to be an incubator. If a woman is pregnant & does not want to be pregnant, for any reason, NO-ONE can force her to stay pregnant.

    I’m always confused when I see references to kids ordering things with their parents’ credit cards. I never would have ben allowed to do that. If I had done it w/o permission, I would have had no Xmas presents for a decade, among other punishments.

    I don’t think this comic is fair. The clerk was incompetent & deserved to be made fun of. Ellie did nothing wrong so there is no reason for her to be given some sort of karmic lesson at the end.

    I could never marry a PC user. I don’t think that level of fundamental incompatibility is bridgeable.

    I agree his comment was repulsive but you should not flag it. Agreeing with a comment is not a requirement for it being posted. I disagree with him but his comment did not violate any posting rules. He has the right to express an opinion with which we disagree, however misguided & vile that opinion. It is better to know what your enemy is thinking than to try to censor him.

    Typos in comics are inexcusable. It’s not that much to proofread.

    Good for Elly! What a jerk that guy is. (I’d use a stronger word if the comments section allowed it.) I’d want to do the same thing she did but I’d be too afraid.
