The one where Elly misidentifies the rude idiot phoning right at dinner hour.

(Original Publication Date, 1 July 1991)

Panel 1: As the Pattersons sit down to dinner, Elly is irritated when the phone rings. Judging from the sour look on her face, she expects she knows who the person on the other end of the line is.

Panel 2: When Mike answers the phone, Elly huffs "Here we go again! Right at six o'clock!"

Usually, people expect telemarketers or people who want you to take a survey to phone at six. Elly is used to a different annoyance.

Panel 3: Elly tells us who the annoyance is when she reminds Michael that she's told him more times than she can count to tell him to tell his friends not to phone the place during dinner hour.

Panel 4: This leads to her being astonished when he tells her that it's for her.

Summary: The reason "Mystery Caller" phoned at dinner hour is because I don't recall seeing her eating with the family. Elly will probably ascribe her poor timing to being at the coal stage.
