Elly tells Michael that if he's gonna complain about being overworked, maybe he ought to actually be working in the first place.

(Strip Number 1629, Original Publication Date, 16 August 1989)

Panel 1: A while later, we see Mike come in and tell Elly that the heat is driving him crazy.

Panel 2: As he grabs a soda out of the fridge, he tells her that the mower is hard to push and that he needs something to drink.

Panel 3: She looks out the window as he says that a person can get overheated mowing lawns on a day like those so he should stay inside for a while.

Panel 4: She replies by telling him that maybe he should mow one of the lawns first.

Summary: The problem with Elly's logic is that she's in her nice, air-conditioned little nook not aware of things like 'heat warnings.' Most of the country has been under one for a month or so so we're dealing with a buttload of bad timing.
