In today's strip, John whines and grumbles about having to go door-to-door and dealing with the public; despite his self-pitying thought-bubble about empathizing with letter carriers, he'll clearly go back to treating them like laughing-stocks.

(Strip Number 387, Original Publication Date, 14 April 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike reminding John that they've gone to nine houses and only sold three chocolate bars.

Panel 2: They then run into that common-place of suburbia called "the dog tied up in the front yard to scare off night-time intruders and annoy the holy living shit out of letter carriers and milkmen." 

Panel 3: We next watch Mike ask an irritated John if he's stepped in something; this is because Mike is better able to keep himself from stepping in the dog crap that dumbasses like the Pattersons don't scoop. 

Panel 4: John then mournfully thought-bubbles that his one bad night helping his son go door-to-door gives him (temporary) respect for postmen.

Summary: Watch Lynn totally not get that we say 'letter carrier' now; watch Lynn also say something totally unrelated to anything that isn't whining about being inconvenienced by the little strangers who want to be the boss of her.
