When it comes to professions like being a lawyer or a doctor, everyone’s perceptions are skewed by television! If only every day working as a doctor could be a tour de force of rare diseases and touching acts of heroism by medical professionals! Seeing as Chapel comes from a family where both her mother and her brother work in the medical field, you might think she’d have a better idea of hospital life. But then again, who really knows what their parents do at work? Maybe my dad’s job as a programmer is like the Facebook movie 24/7. I just don’t know…
Oh ho ho ho ho, she just wanted the paperwork done...

This is great, but I don't think Chapel's mom realizes that maybe taking Chapel isn't too bright...

This is super cute! 3 of my relatives are lawyers and they do a lot of this stuff!

I also enjoy the "take your daughter to work" banner!

Thank you!

Lawyers have SO MUCH paperwork, seriously.

My dad works in programming as well, and it's so easy for him he just does him and sits around. Not the hard work I would have expected.
Riv 1/24/14
Ha! Well, creative work can be tougher than it appears...
 Emma  2/1/14
Yes, programming is nitpicky, and trying to figure out how to do something, or figure out a workaround for a problem, or figure out why you're getting weird results, can really have you pulling your hair. If you've ever seen him frowning puzzledly at screen, staring off into space for long periods, etc., that's what he's doing.

Hmm, I wonder what the law firm will be like (if you're continuing the story)..... I like how chapel just walks out once her mom began talking about paperwork and such..... ^^
Miss L.S.P 1/21/14
Yes, the story will be continuing! And honestly, faced with the prospect of paperwork all day, I would probably walk out too...or else I'd be in serious danger of doodling all over the forms!
 Emma  1/21/14
Haha, yeah....
Miss L.S.P 1/25/14
Being a Doctor rather brutal job these days. more and more paper work, even more stress, you get paid so much less than 20 years ago. Even with inflation adjustment. You start your career way deep in debt that will take decades to pay off AFTER you spend years as an unpaid intern. It's no wonder why only the most deacaited become them. i fear there will only be fewer of them in the future.

One of my relatives is a doctor, and hearing the stories of how much paperwork she has to do every day makes me really sad!
 Emma  1/21/14
Oy. Sounds like a typical day at my day job. :P
Sam Tweedle 1/20/14
OI! (As Donna Noble would say) That's not what being a doctor is about! Being a doctor is about saving people's lives, helping people, and trying your best.
spagEDDIE 1/21/14
Yes, it definitely is. It's sad there's so much paperwork as well!
 Emma  1/21/14
Ha ha...the forms never end!
 Emma  1/21/14
Ha ha! That's so cute; I love Chapel's position in the last panel, though I'm not sure how much more fun it will be with her dad!
Isabella 1/20/14
Thank you, I went through various drafts of her pose in the last panel and I'm glad it turned out well in the end. It's rewarding that you noticed it!
 Emma  1/21/14
I would definitely choose the hospital, maybe she could watch someone else in the hospital.
Mack 1/20/14
If only Barnaby were around, she could hang on to him...
