This was more or less my reaction, at first. I honestly totally forgot all the benefits Rick got in the company-wide layoff (including extended health benefits, some severance pay, and possible extended unemployment), and panicked about the house, the mortgage, me having to work 2 jobs, etc. It’s not quite that bad, at least not at first. As for the previous strip, that really wasn’t Rick’s reaction as he got many months warning before his last day. But I would imagine if the layoff came as a surprise, that might be his initial reaction, lol.

On another note entirely, today I have officially left my 20’s behind me. I turned 30! Go me. Now, will you all stop referring to me as “the cute little youngin’?” I’m a big girl, dammit! *stomps feet*
