Hurry Up and Wait
posted Oct.28.16 at 12:05 am

Nothing is more stressful to me than busting my ass to get something turned in to a client to meet a crazy deadline only to have to wait forever for feedback. I get it. I'm only solving one problem for them. They might have 98 more to deal with before they circle back around to me. But the delays can really stress me out more than they should. Good thing there's a climbing gym down the street to at least distract myself for a bit.

PANEL 1

10pm

JULIE

Closing time. You guys still at it?

BODIE

Client wants to see round one by tomorrow morning.

 

PANEL 2

JULIE

When did they tell you this?

KANE

About four this afternoon.

 

PANEL 3

JULIE

Good thing I have all this mapo tofu left over.

ALLY

Julie, you’re my favorite. Always have been.

 

PANEL 4

KANE

And done! ohmygodlemmeeatthething

Not yet. Maybe they have really long ass meetings.

PANEL 8

67 hours later.

KANE

BODIE

Nope.

KANE

PANEL 9

ALLY

It’s a really good thing I don’t have anxiety issues or this not-hearing-from-the-client-for-a-fucking-week thing WOULD ABSOLUTELY FUCK ME UP!!

 

PANEL 10

2 weeks later.

BODIE

So he wraps the car door around the fucker and—oh, we got something.
