That implies that they’ve known each other for a while. Why would she remember that given that they weren’t married back then?
PROBABLY what he did wrong was insist on buying a printer without checking the reviews. Or is trying to use a “two year printer” after it’s 5th anniversary.
Printers are pretty inexpensive these days (not to mention cheap). It’s the ink that costs like the devil. We like our laser printer pretty well, but it is only B & W and single function. The fancier color printer with the fax and copy functions works… mostly, but it’s a POS about ink usage.
(A little bit of glycerin on the rollers, wiped on lightly, then wiped off very thoroughly after a couple of minutes MIGHT help.)
At first I thought he couldn’t open his mail box.
Well he asked.
harsh, isn’t it?
I WAS going to copy my brother’s old homework papers, but I DON’T want to get an F.
They didn’t have printers like that when he was in third grade!
I for one would subscribe to “Li’l Pickles” strip with the goings-on of Earl and Opal as third-grade classmates. Maybe with Nancy and Sluggo as side characters.
When all else fails read the instructions!
Nice jam Earl !
Well at least he didn’t get the dreaded B200 error code.
That shouldn’t matter since he did third rate homework in all his grades.
It’s either PEBCAK error, or the ID10T code.
He should never ever say this, but he could respond “Why did I ever …” no – let’s change that … "How am I so lucky to be married to you?
In Opal’s opinion, that’s what she’s there for.
He would have gotten better feedback from Roscoe…
Finally , the lovable Roscoe is in todays cartoon . The curious face in the first frame is just precious then frames three and four , four is so cool with Roscoes tongue hanging out . Great job to Brian today , please keep it up with the " Lovable Roscoe " in the cartoon series . There is always a place for him in the strip somewhere .
If that’s all she’s got…..
It could just be that the paper’s too damp. Or the pickup wheels are too slippery from dust. It happens all the time.
It’s what machines do!
High humidity or too high recycled content, Some papers are goopier than gravy skin.
I have a lot of electronics, appliances, tools, toys, etc. Possibly the most troublesome piece of all is the Epson Ink Tank Printer. I think they are getting even with me for not buying ink every month.
Anyone ever dread going to school because they didn’t do their homework? Just me? Okay….
New HP Printer $1.00, monthly cartridge replacements $1,500.
Opals memory is astounding…LOL
It was penmanship in 2nd grade. My life may have been better if my job applications didn’t look semiliterate.
One of my greatest joys was recently learning that I can do without a printer. On the very rare occasion that I can’t get out of needing a copy of something, I get it done at the library or UPS. I tend to toss printers out the window. I just don’t use them enough, and printers don’t like to be idle most of the time. Often I just take a picture with my cell and email or text it to whoever needs the copy. I get creative. Let someone else be responsible for the upkeep.
Opal knows Earl well.
For me, it was 4th grade.
For Pearl it is a convenience!
I copied more homework than I actually ever did.
Opal is the queen of insults. Earl should leave her.
Gotta love Roscoe’s reaction in the last panel.
