    I like how Rat removes his glasses to give Pig the bad news. Good eye contact

    Is this strip intended to be ironic? All of those apps rely on complete strangers.

    Although I do not have a smartphone myself, this is why I carry a power bank (Duracell Powerhouse: ). At least I could call someone with a smartphone, or power someone else’s smartphone.

    Mine is an older, cheaper version of this:

    Or you can learn to do things the way they used to be done. Serve you better in the long run.

    Pig, you should know by now complete strangers are more reliable than Rat.

    Battery capacity is irrelevant when there’s no cell service for miles and miles.

    I purchased a pair of double-sized batteries, the extended size back, and an external charger.The phone is twice as thick, twice as heavy, and lasts twice as long on a charge. And on those occasions when I use it heavily and still manage to run the battery dry, I swap in the spare!

    You’re supposed to use the Kayak app before you leave on vacation so you can plan everything out ahead of time…

    It was either dead battery, no Wifi, or no cell service.

    I’m not sure “yelping” a bar is accurate.Yelp should not be trusted.
