John tells Elly about the stressful day he had at the clinic. The payoff is that he's not only life's punching bag, he's the strip's punching bag.

(Strip Number 4364, Original Publication Date, 27 August 1983)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find a mildly-freaked out John in the kitchen telling Elly about the bad day they had at the clinic.

Panel 2: As she pours him a cup of coffee, he tells her that first the suction backed up and then the high-speed drill broke down.

Panel 3: The end result was that they had to cancel four appointments.

Panel 4: He then tells her that she doesn't know what it's like to have people tell her that they're happy to not to have to see her.

Summary: There's something else she doesn't have to deal with yet: people who contradict her that she cannot intimidate into silence. She responds to that stress by biting phone books.
