Poor Susie, I feel your pain…
In all fairness Susie is not being very patient with Calvin.
Just have Spaceman Spiff fly out there and do a quick survey.
There are few things in this world as uncomprehending as uncomprehending management.
Calvins trying to take this chance to boss around Susie for once!
When there is good will cooperation must be possible!
Calvin, it’s time for a change. Susie is too angry to be a good partner.
Susie should take the transmogrifier, put Calvin under it and turn the knob to a good choise for her.
She definitely needs an ATTITUDE adjustment.
Why on earth are 1st graders researching the planet Mercury in the library?
So Susie: suggest to Ms. Wormwood that you and Calvin do separate reports entirely–problem solved nicely!
Yikes, calm down Susie!
Fast forward 25 years… Calvin (under an assumed name) will be a big shot CEO - taking credit (as most of them do) for the hard work of others and walking away with millions. Apparently this is how they all start out.
I’m surprised that with the theme of their assignment Calvin is not more enthused!
Yes, where is Spaceman Spiff! (um, just leave out the alien life forms in the report) :)
We’ll see how good Calvin’s management skills are. Will he take Susie’s lunch money? Will he force a pay cut? Will he take a golden parachute retirement and shift his capital earnings to an off-shore account in the Bahamas? Will he take all the credit for the report?
But, one thing is for sure: he does have the whole bit about devaluing the employee down pat.
No Susie, sorry! I think you’re stuck with him!
Calvin loooks so cute in the last panel!
LOL… “I’ll be the management”.
Sounds like my sister….
This Calvin is awesome!!!!
The more calm Calvin is, the more frazzled Susie is.
huh wait what? susie is going to get them tossed from the library
WOW Calvin sounds just like my boss yesterday LOL.
I guess Calvin instinctively knows the difference between managers and leaders.
…. My sentiment exactly … but Calvin is not a soclalist ..oopps, did I say that?
jaja que enojona, calvin lo hace a propósito, es una táctica muy usual con las mujeres
Susie should get Calvin a book on Hg and let him report on that.
Susie do not take orders from him! Let him get the books!
How about Suzie research and Calvin does the illustrations.

Puhlease…don’t dig political connotations out of this strip. It’s profound, no doubt, but politics? Nah…use the SOTU forum.
I think a good title for the report (based on panel 4) could be “mercury rising”.
I love Calvin and Hobbes, my fav is the one where he talks about seeing his life flash before his eyse and hitting susie with a slush ball. Classic!
This partnership does not bode well. I see two big fat “F”s in the making.
One of the big fat Fs will be Calvin’s fat head when Susie gets done!
Susie, calm down, will ya?! You and Calvin need to go and take the books from the shelves and do the research on Mercury, the reddish planet.
I do remember when I was in third grades at the deaf school. I worked on my research about the reddish planet, Mercury. My classmates did work on their researches about each planet. We enjoyed working on our researches about the solar system. I still had the book about the solar system and our researches on those planets.
Wildmustang1262, I thought the “Red Planet” was Mars.
I remember this strip from years ago. Spaceman Spiff will eventually make an appearance!
I think jweb1510 has a point, why are third graders doing a report on Mercury? As far as being in the library goes, get those kiddies to the books as soon as possible! I can’t beleive how many college level students don’t know how to use a library! (sorry, both my parent’s are directors of libraries!)
i can relate to susie. i am always the one doing all the work. it sucks. i have put my foot down lately and done the projects on my own and gotten better grades then when i did them with partners, who did no work.
he said the redish plant. that is the catch.
prasrinivara says:Wildmustang1262, I thought the “Red Planet” was Mars.
Maybe you are right. Mars is the Red Planet. Mercury is the fastest orbit around the Sun and near the Sun, too. that is how Mercury becomes very hottest. Pluto is very, very far away, very slowest orbit around the Sun and become very coldest. Also, no existances in Pluto. You can check the goggle and find the information abt the planets.
Haha, I was the labor in high school, but was promoted to management in college… :-P College was challenging! Dude, Calvin obviously needs some help, but is too prideful to ask so he is being sarcastic instead. Susie should help him out instead of getting all mad about it.
