This only works if you have viable options, of course.
I love the wood-cut waves in the final frame.
Unfortunately, this is the common misattribution – Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens didn’t say/write it…
OH if only…I like having dolphins to lead the way too…nice!
So he’s hoping the dolphins will feed him?
Find something you like to do and do it. I loved things mechanical so I became a mechanic, got bored with that after 30 years and started a small construction company. I enjoyed working most days and lived within my means. It’s not rocket science.
“Take this job and shove it…..”
This “Zen Pencil” strip is #1, today! :)
Ha ha! Great! Until payday rolls around and there’s no deposit. Hope you’re good at fishing!
How many of us out there wish we could do that to our boss or even bossy coworkers?
That guy must have a money tree, or a magic bitcoin, or some bloody thing. Maybe it’s dream money since it lets him live his dreams, eh?

Love your art style!
Um, ah, excuse me, but the trades blow in the mid and north Atlantic . . . Just saying . . .
While there is no good reason to tolerate an abusive boss, unless you are financially independent, you will need a job. Better to find a job you like, that way you can afford the dream vacation (well, if you’re paid enough)
For what it’s worth, we’re full time cruisers aboard a sailboat. Boat name: Flying Pig (as in, “When Pigs Fly!!”) is sort of indicative; there’s another quote he illustrated some years ago now, with the ending being “throw yourself into the abyss and find yourself landing on a feather bed” or words to that effect.
We’ve basically been doing that for 11 years now…
