Shout out to my fellow slow eaters out there.

There have been a few (understandable) criticisms of Paul's man bun, and I couldn't help but imagine Anna's reaction:

The family resemblance intensifies.

I also have to comment that I see the shadow of unbridled sadism in Tilly. That is mostly because she somehow became a manager without even graduating school though. The teasing isn't bad... yet.

On the Anna reaction: If the comment she was reacting to was something that approves the man-bun then might her reaction be different? I could see her being at least as aggressive in asserting the man-bun is embarrassing, ugly or stupid instead.

Tilly's young age was initially just a reference to a brief time when I was twenty-odd and my manager/team leader was sixteen. Tilly does technically share the job of manager, but the other guy never appears in the comic anymore, so yeah, she's a superhero (supervillain?)

I think Anna's reaction to man bun approval would be more "no one asked you actually??"

Yeah, I could see that. I'm disappointed though, what are we coming to when Anna's reactions aren't needlessly violent or aggressive?

Oh, don't worry, she'd say it very aggressively

Ugh, I too was an incredibly slow eater... as a kid.

But fortunately that has significantly improved, so eating-related social activities (restaurant, canteen) don't always have to end with everyone having to wait for me anymore! :-) (And if I am hungry and the food is good, I do even eat rather fast...)

The best I've managed so far is ordering smaller meals so it won't seem like I'm taking as long... It's certainly a cheaper way of eating out!

I eat slow because I eat everything separately. And it doesn't help that I eat rice last, which takes forever, and that all my meals have rice lol.

Slow eaters unite!

I used to do that, but then I started eating "more normally" and I think I'm now even slower! Rip

Few men can pull off the man bun as well as playing with their food.

Anna follows the old form of 'only I get to make fun of him because he's mine'. Sort of like how my brothers and I do the same with each other. Only we get to make fun of each other. If someone else does it, then we unmercifully make fun of them together. It's fun and bonding.

Yep, pretty much! They haven't earned the right to make fun!
