Vacation photos are all we have right now.
Ashley is using Zoom’s virtual background.
Her job only pays for a inner-city vacation to a Rat hole.
once this pandemic is over with, I’d like a vacation
It doesn’t show Ashley packing the kids off to summer camp.
“If it’s on the internet, it HAS to be true!”
Yeah, me too. Living at the beach, 365 days a year. Beautiful girls bringing me Pina Coladas.
I think the only person who really does it is Jimmy Buffet, and that’s his job!
How does she do it? I think the martini glass explains how she does it.
Lies, damned lies, and FaceBook!
Thank you for reminding me that my life is not grey. Life is full of choices and luck. (Good and bad.) I chose to move away from the traffic jams (literally and figuratively) and had some good luck along with some bad. I have no real reason to complain and life is better when I remember how good it is.
Ashley looks like she has a pretty nice figure for a woman with two kids.
I guess I should be thankful that I have a job that I generally enjoy and don’t have to worry about getting stuck in traffic because I live close enough to walk there during non-quarentine times.
Compared to the vast majority of humanity who have lived in this world? Not a terribly bad life.
Only one week?
I was always a “working stiff”……working jobs day in and day out. Surviving the weekend to make it back to work on Monday. Never could afford a vacation to Cancun, but did manage to get to Florida once a year for Bike Week. No fancy hotels….BYOB & tent! That was pretty much my life and working career…….but I’m blessed. I’ve had ten years of retirement and I get to watch the sunset nearly every day. Like last night…sun going down, sitting outside in my lawn chair drinking a beer, looking out across a frozen lake here in northernmost Maine, and a small skein of Canadian Geese fly over…..as they say, “Priceless!”
Ashley how did you get the kids ? Is there a man in your life ? … Croc Power !
My Maserati does one-eighty-five
I lost my license, now I don’t drive
I have a limo, ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I’m attacked
Women do all that and more…..Pig!
Hence my name for a popular social media Fakebook!!
One week!?Everyone here in Denmark gets 5 weeks and most get 6 weeks – with pay of course. Is it really just one week in the US?
What if Ashley had planned this as her week at the beach?
Her life as it WAS!
Work for yourself and you don’t have to live like this.
Those IG posts will only be possible with “Throwback Thursdays,” “Flashback Fridays,” or whatever “supportive” challenge Facebook wishes to propose.
We were supposed to be in Hawaii this week… thanks, virus…
Hands up if you feel me on panel 4….

Doesn’t she have to use her one week of vacation driving her son to and from his week-long soccer tournament?
Social media is filled with rumors and lies about other people’s lives.
If you like Pearls Before Swine, “like” this comment. If you dislike Pearls Before Swine, reply to this comment and say “I hate Pearls Before Swine
I don’t social media anymore. Unless you count GoComics comments.
HAPPY EASTER, STEPHAN.
She’s an early drinker. The sun rises over the gulf when you’re in Cancun.
I’ve been following this strip too long. As soon as I saw her name I was expecting the strip to lead to her death, with the clergy at the funeral chanting “Ash’s to ashes”…
Then she died and went to ashes.
Right about now, Ashley is looking at the grey part of her life as “The good old days.”
Ashley must have a very short commute or a late start time at the office if she’s getting up at 6:30. Before COVID WFH, I was already on the train at 6:30. (and I used to walk uphill to school, both directions)
I didn’t know you could use the word “crappy” in a comic strip. Neat.
We all make our choices….
As usual, pathetic.
I worked at one place for over 34years, when they sold and I lost my job I received 22k in back vacation pay. I wish now I would have taken the time to enjoy life. How can you vacation when you have no job ?
I would like to try to get on Facebook and make posts of misery just for the lols (“here’s me burning dinner!”). But I guess people who know me would worry, and people who don’t would just troll me.
I don’t know about Facebook (never used it, never will), but I’ve come to the conclusion that Twitter can be defined as “the forum for those who have absolutely, positively nothing to say and can say it loudly and repeatedly.” I suspect Facebook is much the same.
Hmm. Works at a job that involves meetings in conference rooms. Sound professional. Therefore definitely not running a cash register in a Kroger’s or similar dead-end, low-pay, fluctuating-hours, no-benefits job of the kind that millions of people have.
All they see are the tips of the iceberg.
It always looks better than it is.
This was my life a couple of years ago minus the kids and the vacation. I was at a job I hated but then the company closed. I then found a job that I love. I’ve been there for 2 years. Made some great friends and have cut down on my stress
It’s a Digital Delusion, Pig! A Social Media Scam!. Ashley is faking it in more ways than one….
What if I told you… Her life was a lie
I have something to say: Something
