Oh, I clearly remember this one. I have to say, I really don't have any snark. Many times as a kid, I wondered how adults could keep smiling and being reasonable when aggravating things happened (mostly because my parents couldn't). I won't even gripe about John growling. At least he's getting his frustrations out right away, instead of bottling them up and taking them out on his family, passive-aggressively. I mean, that sixth panel shows incredible self-restraint.
