    Translated this means:
    Wake Ed up at 5 and kick him out of the office for the Holiday and no one will be asked to work late cause I have somewhere to be.

    Good point, Rita. It’s the sound of it they’ll remember.

    I have a friend who works as a software manager at a big company. He worked his way up to management from starting as a level one programmer. Their hours are officially 8 to 5, but nobody leaves at 5, and everybody there knows better than to try it – it would be career suicide. Being paid salary for 40 hours and actually working 60 hours is the norm. So, this strip is spot on reality in the software industry.

    Sometimes her daughters come home. Her mother keeps sending the invitation, but Rita’s always “too busy.”

    I give up: what blueprint is on his monitor?

    I don’t know. I mixed bits and pieces of different schematics- and labeled it “Combination blu-ray popcorn popper.” I can’t guarantee it’ll work. But imagine the hi-definition snack if it does!

    Obviously, it will use 3D printing to extrude the popcorn. The cool factor will totally outweigh the quality of the food.

    Wait, she has children? Someone actually calls Rita ‘Mommy’?

    They’ve appeared a few times. But they’re both grown, college age and older.

    I’M still trying to envision the GUY who can get past the attitude to spot the gorgeous woman behind it! I mean, yeah, she LOOKS wonderful – but GOOD GRIEF, who could put UP with her long enough to get her pregnant TWICE?
