Now you will be JoJo the Dishwasher until you are 18!
Or she’ll make you wash all of them over again, kid. And stand over you while you do it. Marcy doesn’t strike me as the sort of mom who allows her kids to do a half-a**ed job and then say “Well, OK, I guess you aren’t able to do this right so you never have to learn to do it properly.”
to see the look on Jojo’s face in that final panel!
Lolololololololol..his eyes say it all…..
That didn’t work on my mother; she’d tell us we’d just have to keep doing them until we learned to do them right.
Today JoJo is sporting the “I didn’t want to clean but Sunny blackmailed me” look
My brother tried the same thing, mom made him rehash all the dishes again including those in the cupboards. He’d put some away and we didn’t know which were clean or dirty. Besides after the bottom of a dirty plate touches a clean plate it has to be washed.
Our glasses are hardly ever clean.
Sunny will be mayor, then governor. Upward!
Mom was a Pastor’s wife. We had dinner for a two of Mom and Dad’s friends, and after, one of the ladies mentioned we didn’t have a dishwasher. Mom, without a pause, said “Actually I have two,” nodding to to me and Dad, ’Him, and him !"
I had a coworker like that. Anything he didn’t want to do, he did so badly that you never asked again.
I don’t see what’s so hard about learning to wash dishes.
As a kid, if you’ve ever played “Sea Hunt” or “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” in the kitchen sink with your G.I. Joe or Captain Action dolls – I mean Action Figures, and added soap to create a bubble monster, then used a dish rag as the bubble monster’s weapon to eat G.I. Joe…then you just learned how to wash dishes. Just replace the action figures with action dishes.
“He knows when you’ve been sleeping. He knows when you’re awake.He knows when you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake!”
Sorry kid you and all the rest are under 365/24/7 surveillance. Now Santa did a big naughty of hijacking a sleeping humanoid abomination’s own arcane biological system. Millions of floating invisible eyes that watch and identify who is good and who is evil. Fortunately only its owner, CHULA-VARUNA, can activate the boon an smite function of the eyes.
Santa was warned against it, but the population explosion never stopped. Sooner or later the sleeping abomination will be released when the stars are right. And Varuna just may be aware of the theft!
My mother’s philosophy was also that if you couldn’t do it right with a good attitude, you just needed more practice.
