(Strip Number 4184, Original Publication Date, 11 June 1982)
Panel 1: We start things off with Deanna and some other girl telling Mike that the other kids at school are collecting money to get Mrs Hardacre a gift.
Panel 2: He asks if they're kidding, says he won't do it, she's been mean to him all year and so on and so forth.
Panel 3: The other girl tells him not to be a dummy because he's not being asked to spend his own money; just ask his folks.
Panel 4: He asks how much.
Summary: When he talks about Mrs H being mean, he's pretty much being like Lynn is when someone catches her out in a mistake; he doesn't like being criticized because he's one of those thin-skinned jerks who has more pride than brains.
