#208 – Moving

I’ve moved about 12 times so far in my life. It becomes a skill after awhile. I think the biggest trick I learned was to buy a bunch of moving boxes that are all the same size. Packing the truck goes really fast when you don’t have to tetris every single thing in there. The funny thing about moving a lot is the boxes of stuff that never even get unpacked by the time you move again.

    He should have also not bought the house that is slanty along with said hill. But then again, it is Biff. I think a slanty house would make it easier to go to certain parts of the house.

    Yeesh…I know about moving all too well, haha. Lets see…I’ve moved 17 times so far in my life 😛 It doesn’t get any more or less fun, haha. It’s just something that happens and gets done for me…I’ve moved almost as many years as I’ve been alive…just off by about half a decade, haha. Good stuff!
    Love the comics Chris!

    I found it annoying to move in my short lifetime, it’s just an amplified moment of when you have to try and think if you’ve forgotten anything. Moving boxes can be quite irritating too since you normally would find yourself tripping over a box you absolutely thought you’d unpacked earlier.

    I hope Biff wasnt crushed by anything fragile

    the last time i moved i lost about five bucks and a gorillaz cd(which is good because now i dont like them) ,my computer was going hatwire last night after coming home from the fair, I had the least helthiest dinner,. It consist of fried mushrooms,fried green tomatas,french fries,fried twinky,and chocolate dipped bannana.

    I’ve actually done that….. except the oly thing that fell were 3 mattresses because we hadn’t tied them down. What could it hurt, right? Guess what it can hurt. Your ribcage, Chris, your ribcage. I hop you know the kind of pain you just put Biff through. Geeze. Keep up the good work.

  7. Tyler says:

    Hmm, I never thought of that whole same size box idea, I shall have to try that in a couple months. ^_^

  8. Rayne says:

    Christ. I think I’ve actually done that once.

    I also pack everything huge near the opening.

    So intelligent.

  9. Franklin says:

    I just caught up with the series and it just keeps getting better.
    I want to name my kid Biff now. Just to see what would happen.
    And to see if he would buy a slanted house. What would the house be like
    at the bottom of the hill though?

  10. Dr Glenn says:

    Is that the same house as in comic #22?

  11. Ratheri says:

    Well, on the bright side, at least he didn’t have trouble getting stuff out of the back of the truck…

  12. Tinned Moron says:

    Curse you Ratheri, that is exactly what I was going to say.

    May something unpleasant happen to you at some point in your life!

  13. Amy says:

    Better than unpacked boxes, is being able to use all your old boxes for the next move! They’re all pre-labelled! Sweet!

  14. Andrew says:

    I just noticed that Biff’s boxes are unlabled. How will he figure out where everything goes?

  15. Smallandfurry says:

    Man.. i’m a multi drop delivery driver.. and i never ever remember park down the hill!! and of course.. i never get same sized boxes.. and all my “returns” get flung into the back.. so.. facing up hill to get something big out ( yeah i know.. smart) and well.. biff has shown it nicely!! great fan!!! keep em comming!!

  16. dragonbrad says:

    andrew he is magic hecan be eaten by a drawer dwelling beast,had painfully hot rays of sun go through his head and somhow survive his cat tormenting him,so i think he can do this ya know

  17. Eleanor says:

    I think everyone that reads this will run a mile if they ever meet a cousin of mine. Nickname, you guessed it, Biff.

  18. dragonbrad says:

    i wouldnt run

  19. plumtreefish says:

    at last, i have arrived! (it took awhile to go through the whole archive and read all the comments, too…)

    most excellent comic, chris! i really like your style, and those green chucks please me quite extraordinarily. (:

  20. Linkage says:

    I’m actually moving in a week. I’ll have to remember the parking trick.

  21. Seto Kaiba says:

    I’ve got you beat linkage. I’m moving now. The movers come on saturday. ;-P

  22. Rocky A says:

    5 years later i wondered why i would pack something that was obviously junk… and why did i pack the sandwich shaped green fuzzy ball i wonder 😛

  23. dragonbrad says:

    i wonder how he packed it in,did he tip his house over so all his stuff would fall into the truck

  24. colin says:

    i’ve never seen someone use tetris as a verb….

  25. Chunky says:

    I think Biff moved to San Francisco.

  26. Mint Sharpie says:

    This looks almost like one of those moving trucks with the “moving tips” on them. They all seem like such Biff-y things to do, now that I think of it.

  27. Radical Edward says:

    I have moved 2 times in my life and I am starting to hate moving. Mainly because my parents hated their surrounding.

    I’m starting to think of moving as a legal form of mental abuse.

  28. darkpheonix XIII says:

    I’ve moved about 7 times, twice to different towns in different counties than the original one, and this all started when I was about six. I am now 18. Moving IS a form of mental abuse.

  29. Zaphoid says:

    I have to agree about the boxes remaining packed. I made a rule: If the tape doesn’t come off of the box by the next move, it gets thrown out. If it doesn’t get emptied by the move after that, it gets thrown out.

  30. LydiaRaven says:

    I agree!

    I have tons of boxes that I still havent unpacked from a couple of movings ago XD

  31. snakeadelic says:

    MOVING TIP: Forget the cardboard, ppl, go to your nearest big-name discount chain store (Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, etc) and buy great big plastic stackboxes! You can label them using Sharpie marker on clear packing tape, so the labels aren’t necessarily permanent. Sterilite makes clear ones so you can see what’s inside, even! My moving record was 5 cities in 12 months–2 of the cities TWICE, so I got all kindsa clue about this! 🙂

  32. Tuesday says:

    You’d think he’d have learned after the slanty bath not to get houses on hills.

  33. Pom Rania says:

    Ya know, that’s the first time I’ve heard “tetris” used as a verb. I like it!

  34. Mr toast says:

    what are you talking about?
    he got the truck unpacked in record time

  35. EmoToast says:

    I had to move into a house at around that angle. It was a really steep hill. Surpized That when we open the back door thing all the stuff didnt come slideing out.

  36. Random Girl! says:

    I always have at least half a dozen boxes that never get unpacked between moves. Seriously, I just found a box whose contents hadn’t seen the light of day since 2007 – four moves ago. “So THAT’s where my favourite lamp went!”

  37. SurveySays says:

    i think he succeded in unpacking the van…

  38. Serif Marak says:

    I have moved over forty times.
    Roughly twice a year since the day I was born.
    Do I win?

  39. Pix says:

    He moved, well he had to someday
