don’t get any ideas, Leslie (even if your estranged mother Ann and Tiffany’s estranged father Tom are seeing each other)
At least Les has a sense of humor to go with his smarm.
It was worth a try Les.
Valid sales point. ✨❤️✨
Moving in with Leslie would be the same as moving in with Gunther, so Tiffany has two excellent reasons not to move in.
Good job, Tiff.
Nice try les. She just wants to be co-workers, not room mates. She knows what you want and you ain’t gettin it.
“Tempting. Very tempting.”
But no matter how close Tiff is , Greg will never be close to resolving any of arcs!
Not the hand gesture he wants to make at that point. Just sayin’.
I wouldn’t give tips for a found earring. I would say a heartfelt thanks but that’d be it. A $10 tip is nuts. Finding and returning personal items should be a simple act of kindness which the world sorely needs. This act of kindness shouldn’t have a monetary value.
Well Les you gave that good old College try.
How about both Tiff and Bets move in to their guest house
Tiff enjoys saying “No” to “proposals.” Until now, that’s been the only thing asked of her – she now has other things to offer.
Less, Tiff is dumb, not stupid. Cheap shots need not apply.
Mordy has to be beside himself. Probably hasn’t recovered yet to comment. He has been predicting Les would make that move. Good to see Tiffany turn him down.
You do dishes? Meh. Now, if you did windows, THAT would be something.
Doesn´t he still live with Gunther?
Les is so smooth, it’s disgusting.
Way to go Tiff! SHUT HIM DOWN!
Plant the seed, Les.
Tiffany’s right in the same boat that I’m in-she’s working her TAIL off to stay out of a situation that she can’t STAND. For her it’s Ann Eiffel, for me, it’s a sister that I DON’T get along with and a brother that I barely do whom I’d have to move in with if I can’t keep things going. So that makes me try all the harder-kind of like Goldie Hawn in “Private Benjamin,” where her dad come to bail her out of the Army and she refuses and decides to stay right there and tough it out.
Usually bill splits like these would occur at the end of a shift rather than continuously like this. And wasn’t the lingerie resale gonna cover her dorm for this month?
Is Les talking about his personal size? I thought this was a family oriented strip.
You still live with Gunther, right? I don’t need to step into the drama swamp…
I love the way the strip faces the subject. It could have been a melodramatic scene, instead it remains in positives and amusing tones. Les with Tiffany acts like a better and nicer person. Tiffany is relaxed around him and knows he can be trusted. A rare positive friendzoning scene without tragedies! Excellent, really great.
Les apparently shaved for the 2nd frame, then re-grew his goatee for the last frame…
How soon will it be until TJ invokes a “No Tip Sharing” rule?
Panel #2 also is symbolic of Tiff’s impression of what Les has to offer in his seduction attempt.
I wonder if at some point Tiff will decide to keep a bigger portion of her tips?
OK, the ten for returning the earring was a REWARD, not a tip. Why does she have to split that with him?
Its clear that Les and Tiffany are friends, and I think sincere,within bounds. Tiffany knows his past in high school, after all, particularly with his bullying of her life-long friend Gunther (wait MD, I will comment on this in a sec), but now he is living with Gunther, and she is estranged from her dad, who is this/close to his felonious mom. They both are estranged from their one remaining (apparently) parent. I don’t think it would be a bad idea for there slowly to be friendship blossoming in romance for these two. Okay Mordy (MD) hear me out on this. I believe people can improve, and slowly a more improved version of both Les and Tiffany is emerging. Neither has any real hint of romantic life, both are tossed together by circumstances over which they have no control. Gunther looks to be all set (I sincerely hope) with romance, Bets I think is a major character development, and while Gunther will still be Gunnie, he will be one with a smile a lot more often. I have a feeling that is where these arcs are slowly developing. Try not to blow up MD. I think it would be a good match eventually.
Who says Tiff’s not smart; she recognizes Les for what he is and that she should stay away. She’ll do fine as she comes out of her past.
So the lady gave tiff 2 fives?…lol…
Ok why haven’t Les and Tiffany figured it out yet? Don’t get me wrong, way to go Tiffany for being independent but if she pretended to date Les, her dad would be seriously reconsidering being with Anne.
You can’t stop Les from having ideas.
Seems as if I’m of one of the few contrarians here. I still would have preferred a Tiff/Gunther hookup. That being said. Remember that Tiff was ready to tumble for Les at the Guest List episode.
So, in Greg’s plans, there may still be something in the offing for these two.
This arc continues to entertain me and improve; both characters seem to be doing well. Good to see that Tiffany’s sale of her lingerie plus her job is helping her financially almost enough to continue in school (even though school was originally her father’s requirement for her.) Maybe she will be able to switch to a business major and a good life without having to depend on daddy…
Right on cue, Les makes his play.
Why do I get this sudden feeling that Les IS gonna find a girlfriend? My nominee is…Bernice. It will begin with her viewing him as a case study.
Les shot his shot and was shot down!
That was inevitable….
She’s smart as well as getting thinner. Great combination!
I love how smart and hard working Tiffany has become. She’s turning into a good person.
Wow…. Les was featured in a way that was funny and pleasant!
I am glad that Tiffany gave no credence to the idea of moving into the “Gulag”. I hope she keeps up that resolve…… I personally think it would be a horrendous plot development having Tiffany share the “Gulag” with Les and Gunther. Blech.
It is rather late in the morning to have had no post yet from Mordy. Hope all is well. Maybe his percolator broke… and he is on a bleary-eyed road trip to Starbucks or some such location? :)
In your wildest dreams greaseball
Nice try… Tiffany isn’t a total mercenary.
Haven’t seen this mentioned here yet, but has anyone else noticed Tiffany is almost back to her former weight with all the work she has been doing?
Is Tiffany thinning down?
I think they understand each other. He’s a sleeze, she knows it, he knows she knows it.
Not on your life…
Cha cha real smooth
Tiffany has been making some very smart decisions lately, including this one.
I was wondering when that sleeze Les was going to make a move…
i’m really glad to see Tiffany focused on her goals. Her rebuff of Les’s offer relieves (for now) any fears we might have had of her becoming romantically involved with Les.
Give it up, sleazebucket Leslie. Even Tiffany has too much sense to fall for your line….
Tiffany has standards.
If they hit it off why not?
Les? I’d rather see Tiffany walk down the street with a snake wrapped around her arm.
Mordy where are you? Are you okay man? We all want to know you are okay. Not having comment on today’s strip is very worrisome.
I wonder how they’re planning on dealing with the minimum wage issue here, not to mention the taxes. The dishwasher presumably has the higher minimum wage applicable because he does not rely on tips for his income at that job, while the server is getting a lower minimum wage because she does rely on tips.
Idk, I feel like they would be a good team/relationship lol
