In today's strip, we find that Mike is not really all that willing to give money to someone he perceives to be picking on him. This is appropriate, somehow.

(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.
