Don’t forget to tuck in Purvous on your way out.

He gets chilly.


Nate: We done here?
Tracy: The last stocker just left. As soon as we check the locks, we can jet.

Nate: I’ll have to come up with some way to properly thank you for turning what would have been a lovely night into a miserable one.
Nate: I’m not sure yet, but I’m thinking it will involve rusty nails and battery acid.

Tracy: PLEASE. This is YOU we’re talking about. The only way THAT night could have turned out would be in disappointment.

Nate: OOOOHH, questioning my sexual abilities! I’d take your authority on the subject more seriously if I thought anyone could put up with your CRAP long enough to get past first base.

    Why do I get the eerie feeling that Nate will have Tracy as his rebound girl?

  2. She knows sex because of all the porn she does.

  3. Fede says:

    she should show nate how wrong he is about that last statement

  4. “Bow-chicky-Bow-Bow”

  5. chris says:

    yeah, they’re gonna fuck.

  6. Tia says:

    eeeewwww… they are probably related or something….

  7. RotSman says:

    I don’t know…these last few strips Tracy has been slowly morphing into Gargamel. I used to be a big Tracy fan, but she’s going from “mischievous miscreant” to full-blown Episode III here, big time!

  8. Panchocheesecake says:

    I’d like to take this moment and put this MV right here, expressing the recent events of the comic perfectly.


  9. comichero says:

    ha you can cut the sexual tension with a knife its so thick seems to me tracy my have and alterior motive for randomly switching his schedule like that tracy seems tohave the same personality as my sister does not bode well for our hero nate or tracy ,nate man watch out buddy shes a man eater

  10. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    Oh Nate, that was a good one! But, I wonder if the readers are right… that she does like you, but may not have the cajones to ask you out(since technically, she’s your superior and everything).

  11. Midnightwolf says:

    All I have to say is this…

    Why is she smiling in the final panel?

    Something to think about…

  12. Derrath says:

    I felt sexual tension between them when Tracy was first mentioned….
    And if things do go down, I see a possible Triangle with Rose,Nate and Tracy

  13. Jyrki says:

    Oh, sh**! Tracy *is* gonna make a move now.

  14. Mr.Sin says:

    I don’t know why but Tracy looks really good in this comic

  15. MrTT says:

    next comes the hatesex

  16. dan says:

    she has that look, like she plans on suprising him with something in the next comic. i bet she will either pounce him or threaten his job for sex.

  17. Matt [in NY] says:

    Urgent News Bulletin:
    Food Baron CSM Tracy Winters on a rampage, holds as yet unnamed coworker hostage.
    Demands “a bucket of KY jelly”.
    Further updates pending.

    Meanwhile, inside the now locked storage areas…
    ..Nate gets ganked by The Mistress!

  18. Curator says:

    She is obviously challenging his sexual prowess to get him to “prove” it to her…

  19. The Kingpin says:

    I hope ou don’t mind but as it’s my b-day I am counting this as my official birthday thing XD I hope everyone has had a nice day here in britain it is now 11:20 so time for beddy-byeZz peace out!

  20. If Tracy is not heavily into getting spanked, she needs a different come-on.

  21. Babywarlord says:

    this comic feel like my world all over again
    may boss did some thing like this to me
    she did make a move on me alot when it is just us two at work
    i cant wait to see the next comic i hope he isnt going to do the same thing i did
    i walk off the job, it was alot for me to take on with a under age girl coming by work looking for me. ( life is so hard )

  22. Gentle Dementia says:

    I like that you’re finally giving Tracy more characterization, before now she’s been known as a bitch, but now we’re finally seeing it! Great comic in general in fact.

    • Isa says:

      I’m in agreement, here. We are told that Tracy is a bitch, but I didn’t see enough to convince me until the last few strips. That being said, I can’t help but like Tracy.

  23. MentalMage says:

    No fan art in years?! What is this nonsense. I will attempt to fix this as soon as I have time :D

  24. dominic says:

    so he has some weird ideas about sex who thinks they allrready did it

  25. Silver says:

    I forsee angry kissing coming up.

  26. Jakers says:

    Sounds like a DARE if I’ve ever heard one…Nate, she has directly challenged your manhood. You know what must be done.

  27. The Kingpin says:

    How do you make a permanent account on this could you send me a link? Please.

  28. Tony McGirr says:

    I love Tracy’s Bossy attitude so much, it just makes the workplace scenario that little bit more entertaining to me.

  29. WTF!!! says:

    …OMG she wants his babies…
