Managing money can be stressful. Not the money itself, because numbers simply are what they are. What I really have to manage is expectations (my own included) and EVERYONE has emotional expectations revolving around money.
I spent the first year of my job learning the fundamentals of book keeping (I'd never balanced a checkbook). The rest was learning about dealing with what people want.

Lately, I've smothered my site with a lot of stuff concerning money, due to my obligation to draw cartoons for a CPA firm. I posted one on Face Book and a fan responded in the comments with this line. I'd heard it before, but thought it was relevant, so I cranked out this masterpiece. I wish they'd written the pun for the notes on the freezer. Those three words took hours to figure out. If I keep whining, will you think my life is tough?

Somewhere around sixteen bottles, he decided to call it quits. The tide immediately turned and the crowd begged him to finish.
