I saw this sign the other day:
Throw in a “sweetheart” or “dear” somewhere in there for an added effect. d=
Hahaha, great catch. One wouldn’t want to park illegally!
Can never be too safe!

snicker. i love his expression. the counter dude
Glad you noticed! I was hoping to convey a supreme sense of disgust
Cute, but patronizing also means to act as a patron or as a customer. So while you choose to select the condescending definition, it’s not the only one.
Oh, the joys of the English language.
I can’t really tell if this is serious. That was the basis of the joke.
*edit* if this is meta humour (you patronizing me), well played 🙂
I think his point was that because your other comics typically call attention to a humorous misuse of words, he was expecting this comic’s aim to be the same (instead of it just being a play on words).
Sometimes you just have to do as you’re asked. Or park on the street.
When I was in high school, I made posters for a local radio show and one of their sponsors. The only time I used the word patronize, I felt it necessary to explain parenthetically which definition of the word I meant.
Defining patronize is as patronizing as it gets 🙂
I can just picture you standing outside seemingly talking to yourself, when really you’re having a conversation with 7-eleven the store, trying to patronize it but not getting too much of a reaction.
I love how disgruntled the clerk looks.
Very well done. My, you are talented! Great drawing. And all the colours are inside the lines. What a great little blogger you are. Super work. 🙂
Why, thank you very much! The drawing tablet helps. Glad you’re enjoying my stuff
DANG it. Now I’m hungry for corn dogs.
I laughed, as usual, but then in my late night musings I wondered why anyone would park at a 7-11 unless they were actually going to go in one. I mean, I never see them next to something I want to visit. I shall ponder this deep thought…
You raise an interesting point. I did see one next to a drycleaner once, if that qualifies?
