What did I REALLY sign up for...

When I first moved out of NY a few years back,
I went food shopping at a Stop n Shop.
When I came out of the store, an enthusiastic girl with a clipboard came power walking my way and asked me if I was registered to vote.
She looked something like this:

Or maybe she looked more like this:

Or maybe she didn't look like either of those pictures at all...

In either case,
I talked to her and told her I was registered in NY but not MA.
She encouraged me to re-register to vote.
I totally did because I figured I may as well save time and just do it now.
So I put down my info on her clip board and we chatted for a bit then I walked away
never thought anything about it.
Months later when I went down to the town hall to double check on being re-registered.
It turned out I wasn't.
I told them about the girl at the Stop n Shop with the clipboard
asked them if that was normal.
They said,
No, people usually don't register to vote at the Stop n Shop...
So the question is, what did that girl use my info for?!
What did I really sign up for?
I guess I'll never know.

For awhile...
I thought the email people were mocking me.

You know sometimes when you send an email out to people then you end up spelling someone's(or everyone's)name wrong so the some emails come back to you?

Well, when it said "Fatal mail daemon error!"(or whatever it said that was something like that)in the emails that came back, I would get really annoyed
I thought that when the email system used the word "daemon" they really meant to use the word "demon" but had left out the "a" on purpose just to piss you off and be like,
"Hi we're the email demons here to inform you that you fu@$ed up! And we want to annoy you more by spelling the word demons wrong!"
The email daemons!!!HA!HA!HA!

I'm glad I cleared that up.
Life is so much more peaceful for me now.

I just realized that I say,
Don't be alarmed...
all the time
just never as an opening line in a phone call.
Does that make me a hypocrite?
Don't be alarmed?!
Who the hell starts a phone call by saying that?
How about...
Don't hang up on me, I clearly have no idea how to talk to people via phone calls...

That would have been the more appropriate line for these people.

It was just an automated phone message
c'mon get it together!
If you don't want people(like me) to hang up on you, you have to come up with a better opening line.

You know what might be annoying...
If you had to be somewhere
you got there early(like 40 minutes).
So you decide to just walk around the neighborhood
explore just to kill the time.
You keep walking then you decide it's time to walk back to that place you were supposed to be at but were way too early at
you reach into your pocket to pull out that piece of paper that has the address.
For some reason you end up letting go of the piece of paper
it happens to be an abnormally windy day, so the paper with the address blows away
mixes a bunch of other blown away pieces of paper in the distance.
As you watch this happen you realize that that piece of paper was your only way of knowing the exact location of the place you have to be at
now it's gone.
Because of this you end up being an hour late for something you were initially 40 minutes early for.
I'm not saying this has happened to me.
I'm just saying it would be annoying if it happened to someone.

I have a feeling...
that if the Sun Maid Raisin Lady:

the Quaker Oats Guy:

were to meet one another,
they might get along well because of their common love of bad hats.

My comic strip was published in our high school newspaper.
Our high school newspaper was published as one page, once a week in our town newspaper.

When I first started it, it was just about Mowie eating things...
