The customer was rude, but damn, the way Warrick reacted was going too far.

EDIT: I put the wrong page up. Sorry. I fixed it now.

Quick question, ummm, are the therapists good in the future???

29th Oct 2021, 6:02 AM

Oh yes. For one thing they're all licensed psychologists which means they are all certified doctors and go through yearly screening to make sure THEY don't need therapists themselves. In the future, therapy has come a long way and they are much more objective when it comes to fixing things rather than always going the "just give up" or "split up" route since it has been discovered (even in present day) that this causes its own kind of long term damage and even worse regret.

What did Warrick do to the guy? Did we skip over his reaction?

29th Oct 2021, 10:16 AM

He grabbed and scared him terribly. Sorry. Put the wrong page up.

Dang Warrick really called the guy a Minecraft youtuber huh…

29th Oct 2021, 4:31 PM

Actually, he meant "tubbo" as an insulting reference to his weight.

Like I said, this comic is a satire and callout to a lot of things we saw in 80s that we now know are problematic. One of them was when the hero would do something like this as a means of dealing with a rude person or a bully. I want to show how in the real world, you actually lose the fight when you do that and violence only gets you in trouble. It's not because you're the "good guy", you get a free pass at being violent or be a bully back.

Calling someone a Minecraft youtuber would be just as bad TBH, I don’t want to be called that OR be insulted for my weight.

29th Oct 2021, 4:36 PM

Or be threatened while being grabbed and dragged over a counter right off of the ground. Can you imagine how scary that feels? And how scared people watching must be?

29th Oct 2021, 4:37 PM

ah, that makes a lot more sense!

31st Oct 2021, 7:27 AM

Sorry for the goof.

What did he do!? >.>

I hope he didn't get physical, but perhaps he gave the customer a piece of his mind DX. We've all been there, but dang Warrick, you don't want to hurt people because they were just a little rude.

29th Oct 2021, 10:20 AM

No no. All he did was scare the rude customer and really bad. I put the proper page up. Is this better?

29th Oct 2021, 11:33 AM

Ahh, I see and indeed it does! You did an amazing job conveying the emotion of this page!

29th Oct 2021, 12:35 PM

Thank you.

29th Oct 2021, 12:39 PM

Warrick's got the angry-grumps.

29th Oct 2021, 10:35 AM

I made a mistake. I put the wrong page up. Does this one make more sense?

29th Oct 2021, 11:38 AM

O! Yes. *nodnodnods & hides from angry Warrick*

;)

29th Oct 2021, 11:41 AM

Yes, the customer was rude, but Warrick beyond crossed the line. Violence is never the answer especially over a cupcake.

29th Oct 2021, 11:43 AM

Yeppers, but it's what he's made for. Difficult! I look forward to seeing his progress.

29th Oct 2021, 11:45 AM

Technically, a good war machine knows when not to fight as does every good soldier.

29th Oct 2021, 11:46 AM

True, true.

Seems to me that if more people got the reaction they'd earned instead of being able to hide smugly behind the 'you can't do anything' wall society has decided they get then we wouldn't have nearly as many problems.

Instead of storeowners and managers quivering in fear at the 'karens' of the world they should manage their business to cater to paying customers and their staff.
The next line should have been, instead of a strident apology, "and don't come back, you're barred for life"
I'd give all my business to a business I saw stand up for their staff instead of bowing to unreasonable customers who probably won't come back.
The answer to "I'm never shopping here again" is "good! door's that way"

29th Oct 2021, 1:45 PM

You make a compelling point which I completely agree with, but that's the point. Had Warrick acted diplomatically and spoke to the guy sternly yet civilly, he would have been the hero. However, he didn't. He broke a plate, grabbed and dragged the guy over the counter, roared in his face and hinted that he intend to rough him up. By reacting with violence, he made himself the villain and botched the attempt to diffuse the situation.

Violence always makes a bad situation worse and it just gives the "Karens" ammo. Plus, imagine how badly he may have and probably did scare the other customers watching. They're probably never going to come back again especially if they have small children.

29th Oct 2021, 1:50 PM

Or, as I've seen happen, he's going to get a round of applause.
The real bully here just got told to wait until tomorrow.

30th Oct 2021, 12:14 PM

In an ideal world, he would have, but in a time of pacifism like the 3000s, behaviour like that would not be normal at all.
