In today's strip, Elly tells Mike that staring is rude when she actually means that he needs to learn to be a less obvious snooper.

(Strip Number 338, Original Publication Date, 10 November 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike staring out the picture window and telling Elly that not only has Phil just driven up, he's got a girl with him.

Panel 2: He then says that Phil's lady friend has kind of blackish hair and is something or other.

Panel 3: Before he can complete his description of what will eventually be his aunt, Elly yells that that's enough and that staring is very rude.

Panel 4: As she peeks from behind the curtain like a bad guy on a Scooby Doo cartoon, she thought-bubbles that he has to learn to do it right.

Summary: It's sort of appalling to remember that Elly is probably more busy spying on her neighbors to gather material for her bullshit sessions with whichever of her friends she's drinking coffee with that day than actually cleaning; if she weren't playing Jim Phelps, she'd be able to do more than just move the dirt around.
