Yeah, the training they give at most low-wage jobs does not last very long. How long it then takes past that to actually become passably competent at it is a bit of an open question though. I've seen an awful lot of Dunning-Kruger affectation in people's estimation how difficult a job is.

Once upon a time there was no television or radio, and sitcom standard jokes hadn't been popularized yet (or even invented in a lot of cases). This time was certainly long before I was born however, so I do not personally know if this claim is true or not. Do you think that maybe historians and old people are conspiring to pretend that there was a time before television sitcoms, and that all those stories they tell us about Hitler and the Second World War are made up? ;) That one is just like the conspiracy that boomers and gen X-ers have to pretend there was a time before the invention of internet advertising. :D

For some people, one hour jet lag is enough, with or without Tuesday sex.

I think it's technically not jetlag if you don't travel East/West, but the act of travelling in general always tires me out, no matter where I'm going with or without Tuesday sex

Love Seth's shirt.
Now I heart walruses too!

Now I am trying to imagine how it would be seeing Ken standing there in a doctor hat, without knowledge of the previous context... (Like it is the case for Anna and Paul.)

Designing Seth's shirts is one of my favourite things about making this comic :)

Doctor hat? Do you mean one of those forehead-mounted flashlights? I would be worried if my barista was wearing one of those because I can't imagine a simple reason someone would be wearing such a thing while slinging coffee.

I assumed it was another word for mortarboard but I'm uncultured so could be wrong haha

Just diagnosing your coffee, nothing to worry about

Hmm, vocabulary limits are indeed a thing. I have had someone wearing one not know what I was talking about when I called it a mortarboard. Other people around them got in on the joke by pretending it's called a, "fezzik," instead, claiming that's the proper Turkish name for a square-topped fez. I'm convinced some actual English words/names were made that way in the past.

Diagnosing coffee, huh? What's to diagnose about boiling water, and coffee beans? *squints suspiciously*

I once forgot what they were called and called it a university hat

I could go full coffee nerd and say you can "diagnose" improper brewing techniques by taste, but instead I'll just say you can diagnose coffee with a high temperature, and I recommend putting it on ice

Um, in most cases I would agree that un-used, roasted beans/grounds should be frozen with all due effort to prevent freezer burn.

If you have useful advice on how to judge the product from coffee pushers better then I can assure you there are fussy people who want to know what the way their coffee tasting off means about why it is off. (I am one of them.) But hold on, this is the internet: Has someone else already done the work of writing this all out for us, whose work isn't hidden behind a paywall? (Fuck Elsevier.)

Mortarboard??
I only knew the word "motherboard", and that's also something completely different...

Yeah, English has issues. I've always been convinced that nobody is fully fluent in it because it's not humanly possible. It's not for nothing that people joke about the English and the Americans being divided by having a common language.

Pffft. Question of the day: Is this real or a lack-of-sleep hallucination?
