Eros is only one type of love, and in times past it was thought as impatient, irrational, and consuming. Tossing it to the wind or suppressing it isn’t the answer, I believe. But channeling it healthily, and respecting that not everyone feels those types of love I think is important, too.
So love thy neighbour, help a friend, spend time with your lover(s), your family (which may be chosen rather than the one you were born into), and be there for each other. And as much as we can celebrate our deep passions for one another, we should also cherish those in our community that don’t feel them, or partially feel them as well.
So, this comic.
The reality is is that I have been on both sides of this. Things I like have gotten less popular, not enough demand, recalls, and whatever. I have had products I love removed from the shelves for perfectly legitimate to seemingly outlandish reasons. There are times where I have had it where I have handled in a “less than stellar” fashion, or have had staff be extremely rude about circumstances like this.
The customer is kind of a hyperbole, here. Not everyone reacts like this. But the goal here was to show how people can have extreme reactions to little things, and you can have ZERO control over them. You can’t help the customer or “guest,” and they take all the frustration out on you. And even though you aren’t supposed to take it some people make it personal. At least in my experience with customer service and retail, this is a thing that happens. I was just trying to address it with humour.
And this is Troy, someone you might have seen if you are on my deviant art at all (check my websites page). I am not sure if it really turned out well here, but I LOVE his pose. Totally the attitude I was looking for. So, even if the sketch captured it a bit better, I still love this.
Trying out things with back ground colouring too. Hit and miss.
