"He rescued himself", yeah, he extracted himself the uncomfortable situation everyone was putting him in. One of the best ways to rescue oneself!
Remember folks, all these peepz are 20-something and still have a long way to go. All of them :)
These sorts of jokes and boundary pushes were definitely something I was living myself back then. It's probable that it was beginning to change when I wrote these strips, that I was beginning to realize some things for myself. For others too, for friends around me that weren't in this sort of 'energy' (let's go with that word) and that I lacked the proper respect for at times. But also for respect for my own self, for my own limits and boundaries.
What you disrespect or dislike within yourself, you tend to do the same towards others.
Oh and please do check out my Patreon and my new webcomic that's updating there (as early access)! It's still familiar enough that you recognize the GGaR artist behind it, but very much its own energy and hey, just a tad more mature than this silly comic ;)

--> This is a rerun of the finished webcomic Go Get a Roomie! You can find these two strips in the old archive >here<!
