Have you ever had the Sunday Scaries? It's that sense of dread that starts creeping in, unsuspected, over a weekend when you know you'll eventually need to go back into the office again.

This was a very familiar feeling to me as an attorney at a law firm that, coupled with a dark sense of humor, I needed a creative outlet for. That's what led to the creation of these comics, featuring stressed-out stick figures with odd head shapes, which are reflections of many of my actual experiences as a lawyer.

I hope these comics serve as a form of therapy–like, a much quieter version of listening to death metal after a demanding day—for other attorneys, working professionals, or anyone who needs a break from the daily grind.

Asperger. I relate. Either do work or do social, but not on the same day.

... I think it's less the fancy office and more being able to feed yourself and house your family... stupid stuff like that.

Fortunately, at least in Europe this kind of contract is void anyway. Clauses that defy common law, that are surprising or that one-sidedly disadvantage the customer are void. I am always thinking about that when I scroll through EULAs that have been designed by US lawyers and merely translated. You are just accept them over here, they are not binding anyway.

Lawyer? Rather engineer! It freaks me off that some recipes refer to cups, tablespoons and the like. Either be precice (grams, litres) or relative (twice the amount of butter than the amount of sugar).

Most likely on a quick pause. But it could be a day off, or they could be students. Anyway, yeah, I envy them too. *sigh*

I hate tv, its a bad influence for parents, thats why they are forcing their kid to become a lawyer or such jobs, if i can, i'll change it to 24/7 real neutral documentary film. For god sake, theres no such life, its a complete lie.

I upvoted this because it has a pie chart. Otherwise it probably would've gotten nothing. I love pie charts.

This is a huge problem in the United States. People should be able to take the time they earned.

You will not believe me but my best score on not showering is 10 weeks. And, no, I don't scare away my colleagues, and Axe stock isn't up because of me. I've been in a gypsum upper body shell for 8 months in a row, with one gently sponge wash after 4 months when the shell was renewed. Then you realise that our focus on personal hygiene is somewhat overrated.

I used to work for a boss who always had a dozen or more “#1 Top Priority!” projects going on, and the list kept getting shuffled every week. Why is it so difficult for some people to grasp the meaning of that phrase?

That's not just in law, thought. Insurance is the same way.
