  1. Ok, admittedly I did just make an appointment with an optometrist to see if I need glasses for the first time. BUT… does anyone else often find the comics difficult to read? The text in the first panel, for example, I could barely guess at even after zooming in.

    Perhaps, if I’m not alone, there might be a way to let readers open a higher quality image so we we can zoom in and not miss anything?

    That said, I loved the absurdity of this scene and it gave me flashbacks to some of my stranger job experiences.
