    Regarding yesterday’s discussion of LuAnn I think the point was T.J. was using and referring to using a French press to brew the coffee.The French press does make a great cup of coffee but it’s a royal pain. Of course this brought out the coffee snobs. These are the ones who say that if you put anything at all into your coffee then “You must not like coffee then.” and they say it with a sneer. I say to them that I like my coffee the same way I like my chocolate – with a little milk and sugar. You say you like chocolate? Go bite into a hunk of baker’s chocolate. Not dark chocolate which has milk and sugar, just not as much as milk chocolate. You’ll spit it out! Bitter? Oh yeah! But with milk and sugar, mmmm! Same for coffee. I’ll concede this. If you can develop a taste for black coffee it’ll make your life easier. And there you go. Have a good one. Silver. Out.

    Bernie, don’t be a witch with a capital “B”. Luann should dump you as a friend, because all you do is belittle her and put her down, while you think that you are above reproach. Well, guess what, honey? Your poop stinks too. Bernice, you are nothing more than a common bully. Why anyone puts up with your kwap, I’m sure I have no idea.

    Miss Phelps? Doesn’t know it all Bernice know that she married Mr. Fogety, so she’s now Mrs. Fogety (per Tiffany) or has that all been forgotten. Considering Mrs. Fogerty’s skill as a Guidance Counselor I think Luann should turn around and leave. The only person worse for given advice than Bernice is the former Miss Phelps.

    If Phelps is running this thing, they may as well turn around and leave now. After all, they more than anyone believed the woman to be incompetent at her job, so why would they want to waste any more time with her? “Definition of insanity” and all that. All the previous session with her failed to accomplish anything, but this time will be different? Oh please.

    Considering that Ms. Phelps is the reason Bernice decided to become a counselor, Bernice’s snark might very well be directed at herself as well as Luann—and gives further proof that she’s not cut out to be a counselor.

    Wouldn’t that tell them right away that the workshop is going to be useless, since the person running it clearly has no idea what she’s doing? She was their guidance counselor before and wasn’t able to help Luann at all, apparently.

    Dunno… Miss. Phelps wasn’t exactly the best at her job. Seeing that she’s the one doing the workshop might make a former student turn around and walk away. But who knows? Tiffany was happy to have her as a private consuelor. Maybe marrying Mr. Fogarty helped her improve? Maybe she’s more inclined helping finding careers? I hope so, because Luann needs help and Bernice too and even more than Luann. Also, Bernice might be shocked to see that her old benchmark for incompetence is really good at her job and i kinda want to see that AND their reaction knowing she and Mr. Fogarty are married now♡.

    Argh! Back in the day, My highschool counselor was absolutely worthless! The only time she ever talked to me about my plans for college was AFTER I received a scholarship, no thanks to her… My kids highschool couselors were, IMO, even worse! I’m convinced they get kickbacks from the institutions and trade schools they steer kids toward. If your typing now to tell me about you or your kids excellent experience with a counselor, STOP NOW! Good for you and your kids! I get it. BUt this has been my experience with 4 different councelors.

    Bernice doesn’t practice what she preaches. It’s easy to transfer all her ‘stuff’ onto Luann. And they are still young. 19 is still young enough to explore career options. I changed majors 1/2 way through college myself. And through a set of interesting twists ended up in IT (no Compsci degree here).

    So many things to love in this comic.Again, we are reminded that Luann is “a bear of very little brain,” emphasized by her heavy-lidded, dull eyes.

    Much love for Bernice’s embrace of drag, and extra love for her decision to dress like Patrick McGoohan from “The Prisoner.” A bold choice!

    And I also enjoy how Bernice negs on her best friend, basically telling Luann to her face—TWICE—that she’s stupid.

    Aw man, I was a hopeless case. You remember those career aptitude and proficiency surveys that came with the testing, where you tallied your scores and marked on a graph to see which area you were strong in or closest to? I was always somewhere out in the equivalent of left field, the wilderness. Never could figure out what I might be really good at, or even especially wanted to do. Never did. Sort of a jack of a few trades and master of none. The closer I got to something I enjoyed doing, the less it paid and the shorter it lasted. Had a couple opportunities with things that I liked, but the people running the shows didn’t want me to do those things, they wanted me to do supporting things I wasn’t any good at. Closest thing I had to a career was about 10 years at a humdrum entry-level office job. Just saying, if you’re still at Luann’s stage, make it a priority to find something with potential for making a living and/or that you love so much you could die trying, and stick with it.
