When even your boss ships you.

I swear to god I thought Jonby was an actual nickname for people called Jon/John but I can’t find any proof of this anywhere so I guess I made it up? Sticking with it regardless.

P.S. I used Clip Studio Paint to line and colour this page and draw the speech bubbles. I’m also doing something slightly different with the colours. Please let me know if anything looks janky, I’m still getting used to this software and I’m a bit too close to my work to notice stuff XD

When the boss ships workers, you know there must not be much to do around the shop. XD

Ha, yeah, true. On slow work days I'll join a conversation about basically ANYTHING to beat the boredom!

OMG I love the on-deck shipping XDDD

This is gonna be all levels of awkward if some customers walk in or if that door swings open XD

Uh oh. If this coffee shop is so empty that it has FOUR folks getting paid for not doing anything at the same time, we may have to worry over how safe Jonby's employment is.

You make a very good point! More likely though Albin would just send a couple of them home for the day. But yeah, Jon's already cut Fridays so if anyone's in danger of being let go...

I haven't worked in a coffee shop but, from what I understand, they have quiet periods but the busy periods more than make up for that.

That third panel is so cute! I totally ship it (as do his coworkers it seems). And he now has a nickname that wasn't given by Seth (although I wonder if he'll make use of Jonby)

Thanks! :) And yeah, if Seth finds out, he'll find a way to ruin it XD
