    I've been hoping to see this stuff in a comic since Mike talked about it at the Q&A.

    They say getting things serviced only feels like it takes a long time.

    But let me tell you, my grandmother took me to get her Saturn's tires rotated in 1998 and I'm still there.

    *resists urge to find stock photo of service center waiting room, put OctoberRavens avatar in there, turn it black and white and make a video of it zooming out while playing haunting music*

    Impressive considering their first models were produced in 1990.

    Wonder when the last time was we got a strip that featured so much of G&T flexing their chops simultaneously.

    What kind of service center are we talking about here? I don't think I've ever encountered a waiting room that gives you muffins and popcorn.

    You guys need to change what the symbols underneath the comics mean. I always find myself highlighting the question mark because I have so many questions.

    But I guess that particular symbol is just designed to throw me to some random trapping from the past.

    Muffins no (at least not free ones) but I've seen free popcorn and coffee machines.

    Wait, why is that impressive? I'm literally not getting it. I can get it if they the OP said 1990 and they weren't actually made until 1998, but they didn't.

    I'm guessing auto service center. AKA the mechanics. There are fancy ones, especially if you own a fancy car and/or it's at a dealership. I've seen dealerships where it basically looks like an internet cafe because so many people work remotely while waiting.

    The Mazda dealership where I take my car has free popcorn, water bottles, and one of those machines that dispenses various hot coffee and/or chocolate beverages. They also often have other food sitting out as well. There could be muffins, but I haven't noticed since I usually head straight for the popcorn. ;)

    Also, this talk of waiting rooms made me think of this:

    (How many people can hear the waiting room music in their heads right now?)

    Dangit, I read that like 3 times every time thought it said 1988. I thought we'd unlocked the secret to time travel.

    This may be one of my favorite strips.

    My Mazda dealer has muffins if you get there early in the morning. They don't, you know, restock them or anything. There is also a vending machine but you have to put actual physical currency in it instead of just waving your phone at it. Barbarians.

    The waiting rooms around where I live all seem to put a 24 hour news or sports network on, instead of music. Not sure that's an improvement.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    Last time I went it was Judge Judy and soaps. Not having watched TV in a long time, it was way more entertaining than I even would have expected.

    Yeah, all these TVs and channels and they choose to put nothing but doom and despair, with brief breaks of the same sports highlight over and over. It's like... come on. And everybody is like, awkwardly staring around into space or into their laptops and stuff. Never seen a popcorn machine in a waiting room though.

    One time on jury duty they brought in cake... it wasn't box cake either.

    It probably depends on the perceived prestige of the company as well. I imagine the waiting room at a Mercedes dealership is going to have more of the snacks and cakes than the waiting room of Ted's Auto Shop. That being said, the wiring harness costing $2,500 as opposed to $600 also puts things into perspective.

    Edit: I google image searched Mercedes of Annapolis and one of their images literally has muffins in the background.
