The Worldbuilders Comic

The somewhat fictionalized office shenanigans of the Worldbuilders team.

Midwest Battle Tactics

We are hopelessly Midwestern around here. That means we tend to defer to other people’s needs before our own, usually to a fault. It gets a little absurd sometimes, though, like when Jenny and Brett fight over which one of them gets to relinquish control over the office stereo.

Jenny likes jazz, classical, and world music, and Brett tends to favor garage punk and power pop (and, through no fault of his own, the odd Hank Green tune). When we get to the office in the morning, Jenny’s usually had her jazz on for an hour or two. Then suddenly but discreetly, it just stops playing, and the argument in the comic above happens without fail. We’ve gone entire days without music because neither of them will budge.

And we really do like Rachel’s music, she just doesn’t want to add a third front to this passive-aggressive war.
