Category: LOG A TICKET! ~ Web Comic
This is based on an actual event that occurred earlier this week. We had one of the PA’s walk in and advise that a new starter is complaining that her headset is too small for her head – bearing in mind that these headsets have been used for the last ten years (and not once has this issue ever been reported) and have adjustable rails…at this point I asked the PA how big the user’s head was but it turned out that she was putting it on incorrectly. Still funny as hell though!
There’s a bit of a back story to this one – my girlfriend and I have both read Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One and now we’re listening to the audio book (read by Wil Wheaton) and after telling her that I’d like to watch all the movies mentioned in the book (I’ve watched most of them already but there’s a few obscure titles lurking in there too), she exclaimed that she would like to play the games.
Now, while the Atari era games were before my time, the NES ones were the games I started out with as a kid so we decided to play Joust. Joust is not an easy game so imagine my surprise when my beloved managed to outlast me (I kept getting killed or just flew into lava), all the while having never played a NES game before…anyway, we played Snow Bros and Bubble Bobble afterwards and this little adventure is what inspired this week’s strip.
