So much for taking personal responsibility.
Welcome to the club, Pig.
Those aren’t plans, anyway, Pig, they’re goals.
Plans are how you get there.
The 7th could be “become bacon” .
Would be nice if I could do the first five; not too sure about retiring young though. (Additionally, how is Pig going to pay for his tuition in order to get himself a job? He’ll have student loans to work off until he’s old.)
That “Perfect Spouse” item is going to ruin his plans anyway: “Perfect” is the enemy of ever getting past that step. “Perfectly good enough” will work better.
PS: The world messes up everyone’s plans. The best plan is to have a single, theoretically achievable goal, and make sure that almost all of what you do takes you in that direction. Note: “Get a great job” is not a goal. The goal should be something like: Find work that pays well enough to afford (list of wanted things), doing something I enjoy (footnote to list of things you enjoy), with acceptable working conditions (footnote to another list)
I’ve heard it said that…“If you want God to laugh, tell Him of your plans.” ;-D
“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, / Gang aft agley,” -R.Burns
We make plans and God laughs!
Well, nobody ever told you it would do you a world of good, did they, Pig?
Pig stop leaving the door open for the blue marble with legs to screw up ! … Croc Power !
Life throws curves…just take the right one….
That you may have bad plans is not the world’s fault.
All this time I thought it was MY poor life choices that were the root of my problems… Now I realize that it’s that little son-of-a-$%^&@ globe ruining everything!!!
If someone who was not part of the 1%, suddenly became one of the 1%, would they complain?
That wasn’t the world. It was a Trump-bot. Are more coming our way?
LOL! That was exactly my plan too when I was 17. It went just as well as Pig’s plan!
technically, those are not “plans”. those are “goals”.
a “plan” would be how you plan to accomplish your goals.
Rat has a plan – crack open a beer!
So, he’s been through plan A, plan B, plan c, etc, and now he’s up to plan F?
Thing is, if you have a great job, you may not want to retire.
I managed one of those six.
He left off the last sign, the one everyone achieves eventually…
These are global issues.
So, Cape Horn is the world’s, um, front part, and the Cape of Good Hope, um, brings up the rear?
The world??? Has absolutely nothing to do with success or failure. Having said that, I really don’t know what does……..
“And I have come to see the wise and the foolish, and the outcome is the same for both. For they both perish, and all that they have done is left to another, and who knows what he shall do, whether good or bad? And I have found that everything is a vanity and striving after wind.”
And before that it just bites.
I think I came out 1 for 6 on his goals. No, I’m not going to say which one.
Get used to it. Murphy and his Army of bugs really are the ones in control around here.
You can all pick on me later for being a Christian but I like to say, “I make my plans and God laughs and says..that’s nice dear. Here’s what we are really going to do”.
Your plans and God’s laughter.
Anyone else want to comment some variation of “…plans and God’s laughter?”
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans…
What did Pig ever do to you?
How many different ways can Pastis make the same joke?
Hmm, it’s amazing, because I hit almost all of them. I didn’t have a solid plan, I just did my best and trusted God for the rest. Now, two years after retiring, I feel truly blessed.
I’ve accomplished #s 1, 3, and to a modest extent 5. I’m a little old for 4 and 6. Still working on #2 though.
John Lennon: “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans”.
Doesn’t Pig already HAVE a spouse? She’d kill him for that….
…idk…world looks hot about something….
You and me both, Pig. You and me both.
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” -John Lennon
If someone who wasn’t part of the 1% suddenly became part of the 1%, would there attitude about the 1% change?
You have to settle for plan C usually.
That is the Way of the World, Pig. Sorry about that.
At 19, I was like Pig in panel 1. Only I thought bigger! So the universe messed up my plans…. :D
