    I’ll bet Calvin will be hearing the same thing when he gets a job. Any job really.

    The worst thing that could happen to Calvin may be getting Miss Wormwood’s job. As Bill Watterson explains, “I have a lot of sympathy for Miss Wormwood. There are signs in the strip that she smokes heavily, takes medication and is counting the years to her retirement.”

    Although Calvin is currently a large part of Miss Wormwood’s unhappiness, she does have some sympathy for Calvin and sometimes tries to help him rather than just tell him off.

    No, Calvin. All you have to learn is, “Do you want fries with that”?

    With apologies to servers everywhere………..

    Just claim identification with some special group out there, then apply for the cornucopia of benefits. Plus sue people for saying the wrong pronoun or whatever. Practice a look of great pain in the mirror. Cry as soon as you see a camera or microphone. Most importantly, get together with others who are acting the same way.

    It’s not Calvin’s lack of effort that is the problem. It’s that his efforts are misdirected.

    By the time Calvin is an adult, Ms Wormwood won’t be with us any more. So, no compensation from her in any case.

    Education is NOT about getting a job, it’s about preparing to be a useful and productive member of society. (Business has perverted public education to avoid the cost of TRAINING workers)

    I don’t have good memories of most of my grade school teachers. One ridiculed me when I said that it looked like all the continents could fit together into one piece. Another told me that dinosaurs never lived in North America. Others would dig their nails into your arms while yelling at you. Etc. etc.

    Ah, the School of Hard Knocks. Being able to accept responsibility before, during and after the fact is a mark of honesty and integrity.Accepting the outcome, of course, well…

    These comments today make me upset and disappointed in my fellow commentors, this had nothing to do with politics and all your ranting but you had to turn it into one big agrument amongst yourselves. Please lets keep politics and back stabbing others out of the comics, go to the politcal comics to do that.
