Mike tries to avoid actual work by picking up garbage that's already in a bag.

(Strip Number 1162, Original Publication Date, 29 May 1987)

Panel 1: A little while later, Elly agrees to pay the boys to do an odd job.

Panel 2: Since this is 1987 and also since she's sort of cheap anyways, Elly offers them a dollar each to pick up the garbage in the alley.

Panel 3: She hands each boy a bag; when said bag is filled, they get their money.

Panel 4: We find Gordon and Brian picking colourless trash off of the magenta ground while Michael picks it out of a trash can to make it easy. This causes Brian to tell Mike that what he's doing is not what Elly meant for him to be doing.

Summary: Mike has a fairly strong aversion to helping out around the house. We'll see how extreme that gets when he starts comparing it to a Soviet gulag because someone as cool as he is has to lower himself to set the table.
