As someone who works from home (self employed), I always get bombarded by people who are jealous that I don’t have to leave the house and can work in my pajamas. What they don’t seem to realize is that every job has its pros and cons. I want to tell them to give it a try. Quit your job! Try to make a living on your own! Let’s see how long you enjoy working in your pajamas when the bills come. Let’s see how long you like staying at home before you start to go a little crazy talking to the cat.
Anyway, I just demonstrated what this comic is about. It’s about how people in a privileged, safe position seem unable to accept that that they have it easy. There’s just something appealing about telling people that your life is harder than everyone else in your community. But is it really that hard at all? 😛
