It’s true. This is why I usually get Domino’s, they have an online ordering process which is void of human interaction, until the delivery guy arrives.
Umm … that is me and my wife … 🙁
It’s fine doing it the once, maybe even 20 times, but when you’re talking about the rest of your life it ‘aint so hot!
This isn’t funny at all, if you know people with actual anxiety disorders.
I wonder if they’re really over calling timetable information already. This exercise should be repeated immediately afterwards, anyway.
I understand if you choose to take the topic seriously, but please don’t make me feel bad for laughing at this comic. There’s absolutely no reason to think anyone’s ridiculing people with disorders here.
I do have some anxiety problems myself, and trust me, I’d rather laugh than cry about it.
PS Getting thrown off the deep end helps. It doesn’t make you any fond memories, but things are better in the long run.
Not all comics have to be “funny”.
Also, what does this paragraph mean? I seriously don’t understand what is being said here. –>
“I wonder if they’re really over calling timetable information already. This exercise should be repeated immediately afterwards, anyway.”
huh? I’m that guy in the comic. Maybe a bit worse. And I still find it funny. You gotta be able to laugh at yourself, you know. Or, at the very least, not try to dictate whether I get to laugh at myself or not.
“You forgot to say extra cheese YOU FORGOT TO SAY EXTRA CHEESE!!”
“Gah!” *tosses phone*
as someone with a profound anxiety disorder, this is absolutely something I ask my partner to do. I showed her this strip and we *both* laughed about it.
Don’t let people tell you that you’re oppressing yourself somehow by coping with your issues via humor.
This is essentially a dramatized scene from my actual life, and I found it funny.
Side rant: I really wish people would stop saying things like “That’s not funny,” as if humor isn’t a subjective thing. Just because you didn’t find it funny doesn’t mean nobody else can, or vice versa. If someone else laughed, especially if they’re the one the joke’s about, looking them in the face and saying “That’s not funny” is obtuse and personally insulting, as if to say “You’re wrong for laughing at that.”
It’s okay, man. I can’t order a pizza over the phone either.
Thank GOD for Little Caesar’s.
This is what happens with me and my roommate. She’s always like… *puppy-dog eyes* please order for us.
don’t worry; there’s an app for that.
Once we hit teenage years our mother would always make one of us order the take away on the phone because she said she was worried that she wouldn’t understand the people working the counter. Of course since we both moved out she manages to order takeaway perfectly fine by herself so I wonder if it was a ploy to make us get used to phoning people.
