Yep . . .That IS what he said.

Sometimes, we all need some space.

I need some space

Sometimes, taking that space makes you an insensitive jerk.

 


Fatalistic, much? Alone forever

Listen, honey. It’s me or solitude for the rest of your life. Peace out.

I love a good non sequitur as much as the next geeky humorist, but this one makes no sense.

Drink was druggedExcuse me, miss? He wasn’t talking about anything funny. Unless you’re so disturbed by his news that the only response your brain can handle is to completely deny reality, there’s no reason or excuse for having that be your reply. Shame on you.

It’s always extra awkward to break up with someone around a major holiday or birthday, anniversary, etc. But when you add in the complication of a terrible disease? The rules of conduct just don’t exist.

You want to feel bad for her. And him. But not him. But her. But him. But fuck him! But how can you say fuck him? He has cancer! My brain! It’s melting! My compassion doesn’t know what to do with this situation! I’m going cross-eyed.

How about this. Don’t use people? Period. Live life to the fullest extent you can, and if your fullest life isn’t envisioned with that supportive person, let that person go. Or if you get a new chance at life, live it with integrity… but maybe figure it out before you accept all the birthday presents.

It’s been a little while since we had a quote where the girl was the obvious asshole. I think this one makes up for the dry spell.

A couple months into exclusively dating…

Mother may have cancer

Ladies, what is it with you and cancer? Or is it with mothers? We have a terrible track record, here! So much for us being pegged as overly nurturing. It’s not like the guy asked you to fly home with him!

Also…. can we talk about how scary thin her waist is in this drawing? I guess I’d be a heinous bitch if my waist was the size of my bicep, too.

I’ve been thinking a lot about whether or not to ever post this comic. It’s not remotely funny. In fact, it still makes me pretty angry. But I keep thinking about all the joke articles saying the Malaysian plane has been found on the moon or in the Bermuda Triangle and such, and trying to imagine what coming across those jokes must feel like for the people who lost someone, rather than gained a mystery.

If you’ve been following TMXS for a while, you may remember that I have this pattern of being dumped when a terrible, horrendous disaster occurs close to my home. Well, here’s the next one.

Two things I want you to know about this scenario:

1. That man is a schoolteacher. 2. He’s also the person who indirectly inspired the creation of this website.

All I can say is, it does affect you. Because if it’s not a terrible shooting, it’s a plane crash. We are all destined to feel loss in searing, profound ways. Let’s use humor to rise above the pain and help each other. But if there’s one thing I hope this website teaches people, it’s to think about what you say, and what it means. We’re all in this together in a global way we’ve never been before.


I sure seem to get a lot of quotes that touch on this theme. Makes me wonder. . . how many dates with a douche does it take to get to this point? One? Two? Three? Ten? It’s like the tootsie pop riddle for the new millennium.

I’m going to venture that no, she doesn’t.
