Everything Is All Screwed Up: Nice Job!

business cartoon

I used to work for a company that manufactured screws. Big screws, little tiny screws, simple screws, complicated screws, all kinds of screws.

It was actually kind of fascinating and I very much appreciate the business education I got there. But the one thing I hated was the customer screw joke:

“Just don’t screw me on the price OK? Ha-ha!”

“I guess I screwed up my order again, huh? Ha-ha!”

“Someone there must have a screw loose! Ha-Ha!”

Yeah. It was terrible.

So this cartoon really took some personal soul-searching before I OK’d it.
