 In today's effort, we see John and Elly's argument over who assumed they were in the right place too from Mike's perspective; he doesn't know that they weren't in the right cabin or why John and Elly are yelling. All he knows is that whatever the reason is, he's getting yelled at too. 

(Strip Number 161, Original Publication Date, 4 August 1981)

Panel 1: We start off with Lawrence coming up to an obviously-upset Michael and greeting him with a cheerful "Hey, Michael, you're back! Didja have a good time?"

Panel 2: Having noticed that Mike sure isn't having one now, Lawrence asks him what the matter is; Mike doesn't know.

Panel 3: What he does know is that for some reason his mom is mad at his dad and they're not speaking to each other.

Panel 4: The thing is that they're BOTH yelling at HIM

Summary: This is just plain disgusting; it's bad enough that the two idiots are arguing about who the biggest cretin is without taking it out on Mike. The only things that make it worse is that KAN will not notice and that John and Elly will never think to reassure Mike when they kiss and make up because, since the issue is behind them, they don't need to.
