Special comic this week due to no comic being delivered last week.
I think I've had my fair share of managers over the years...but thankfully, there have been some happy endings.
And I do appreciate them all playing a part in my career at some point in the past. :)
Makes you wonder: What kind of manager would you be and who do your people see you as?
P.S. The "chicken and the pig" mentioned in the comic is a metaphor for commitment to a project.
A project is seen as a plate of bacon and eggs where both the chicken and the pig are required.
However, the chicken just contributes (the eggs), where as the pig is actually committed (sacrificing himself as the bacon).

While I was drawing my comic about sleeping styles a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that if I didn't add any colour to it, the last frame would've ended up like this...

I'm usually a light sleeper. It's very hard for me to fall asleep, and even harder for me to wake up in the morning (because usually I don't sleep well at night).
I always think the hours that I can actually fall into a deep sleep are between 5am and 8am. So since I have to wake up at 7am every weekday, I'm usually in a grumpy mood in the morning, because my body is telling me I need 1 more hour of deep sleep!!

Yay! Rabbitohs won!!! First time in 43 years!
Actually, I don't really follow NRL, but I received a few requests to do this, and I think it's quite apt anyway. :)
For those overseas, NRL = National Rugby League in Australia.
Some of the teams mentioned above were:
Special dedication to DT.

So, there was much fuss in the past week about the iPhone 6 Plus that bends in your pockets. I was still in some disbelief as to how serious it was...until I watched some videos on YouTube, and indeed - you could literally just bend the phone with your fingers.
From those videos I watched, there was also one where they tried to bend it back to its original state...and, as per the comic above, the screen cracked. Ouch.
For those who own iPhone 6 Pluses, better to not attempt to do this!
P.S. I received feedback that a number of people didn't quite understand the Levels of Listening comic last week, so here's the supporting explanation:
Level 1 listening is when you're not really listening at all. You're lost in your own thoughts. This is the most common form of listening.
Level 2 is when you're listening but you're not really soaking up the information or feel any emotional attachment.
Level 3 is when you are listening and can show empathy at the same time, making the other person feel that they are really being listened to.
Level 4 is newly invented by mtbunnies...you are listening, but to other people's conversations and not necessarily your own. Those who are most skilled at this level are able to listen to 2 conversations at the same time! (Also known as eavesdropping.)
The really good managers are able to switch easily between levels 1-3, which means they are masters of active listening.
