Spread Sheet

Continuing with the work theme, another old cartoon from this month in 1996. Do Arlo and Janis still have jobs? I don’t really know, which means nobody knows. I think they do, but they’re in the latter phase of long careers. They no longer think about a corner office or making vice president; they worry about buy-outs and downsizing and looming retirement. In a way, I think the strip reflects this accurately enough. The couple’s focus is more on home and each other and less on playing out the string professionally. Besides, Scott Adams has done all the office gags.
