In today's strip, Elly makes an awkward fool of herself rather than admit that she doesn't have enough small change to tip the bellhop.

(Strip Number 820, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1985)

Panel 1: When Elly checks into the hotel, the clerk calls for a bell-hop only to have her say that since she only has one bag, it's not necessary..

Panel 2: As he continues to yell for a bell-hop, Elly insists that he need not waste the man's time because that she only has the one bag.

Panel 3: She reminds herself of the unplesant fact that she doesn't have money for a tip now anyway.

Panel 4: As she struggles awkwardly with her overloaded suitcase, she thought-bubbles "Oh well... the trick is to look cool."

Summary: Sadly, looking cool is not what Elly did. What she looked like is someone out of her depth doing something stupid-looking for a silly reason.
