I'm finding that this week's strip - as well as the last one - are helping to vent some frustrations I have. I've spent the better part of my working life slaving away for various companies in shopping malls. It's quite hellish at times, but never more so than around the Christmas period. From the TARDIS-like interiors of some shopping centres (you'd be amazed how long it can take to walk from one end to the other of some of them), to the inability to find even one parking space amongst several thousand, Christmas denotes a special kind of damnation for me. Something which is made all the worse as I can't escape as I work in the misdt of it all! So for those of you who haven't guessed, these holiday strips are a testament to these nightmares, as well as an excuse for some traditional Quackers escapades.
