Cats are Looking at me Funny

Okay well last week I promised a video and I didn't deliver. I apologize. I ended up taking someone's computer to a shop and getting it fixed and ... you don't want to hear excuses.

That reminds me of when I was 8 or 9 and I'd committed some kind of infraction at my school. They sent me into Mr. Steck's office, an older gentleman with a reputation for stern discipline. I forget what I did but anyway I went in. He said (or, yelled) "Why did you do such and such?" I began to reply but he immediately cut me off and yelled "I don't wanna hear it!"

And I remember thinking, at the time, that if he didn't want to hear why I did what I did, then he shouldn't have asked. I remember puzzling about the unfairness of it. It was uncomfortable, as a child, to be yelled at by a 60 year old man.

Then I remember him grabbing me by my chin and yelling full volume in my face. Like, he literally grabbed the flesh at the base of my chin and yanked me closer.

Anyway the point is, you don't want to hear excuses. Video #2 is below, as promised! Thanks for dropping by!

Comic transcript

Crimebuster is talking with the two women at the hospital's information desk about the location of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. It's the hospital's policy to have one on duty at all times, but she is not currently present.

One of the women suggests "Oh, do he mean Brentley, that new nurse?"

The other woman replies "Hmm. Lemme look her up."

Crimebuster hears the tapping of long nails on a computer keyboard and asks "New nurse?" The second woman looks up and says "Here she is... Brentley. She been working here for five months and we've got her training for S.A.N.E."
