427: Bad Timing
Title text: Protip: Even without the red spiders, never have that conversation halfway through a balloon ride.
The red spiders are among the earliest XKCD characters, first appearing in 8: Red spiders.
As the Protip in the title text states, a break-up conversation while you are stranded in an inaccessible location is very poor manners. Also, the suggestion may be interpreted that breaking up in a hot air balloon is a very dangerous way to do it...the reaction may result in one or both parties being ejected from the capsule.
- [Cueball and Megan, flying in a hot air balloon.]
- Cueball: I like you. I'm just not feeling the relationship.
- Cueball: I'm sorry.
- Cueball: It's just bad timing. Me with my classes, you with your work, the spiders...
- Megan: The what?
- [Red Spiders crowd onto balloon, causing it to fall.]
