    The way this kid is says Rick and Joanie some of the worst parents ever.

    Well, at least Jeff’s consistent!
    Once a jerk, ALWAYS a jerk!

    I don’t know. This time, Jeff seems to be on target.

    Jeff is just the epitome of selfishness. There is no one but himself.

    You can try your best to raise your children but they still can say or do whatever they want.

    I kinda read it as Jeff’s thinking “Once you get OLD, you just have to settle for what you got, and Dad, you’re old!”

    Some times one kid just seems to get all the bad genes. But in Jeff’s case, you’ve gotta wonder if he wasn’t switched at birth.

    Joanie and Rick need to start on a home improvement program by kicking Jeff out of the basement and putting in rats.

    I’ve long wished that Garry would marry Jeff and Alex and send them off together forever through the gently falling . . . drizzle. But no. Poor Leo. Poor Joanie and Rick. Poor us.

    Sort of reverse Oedipal conflict?

    “I’ve long wished that Garry would marry Jeff and Alex . . .”
    But Jeff is Alex’s half uncle. That would be kind of creepy.

    I don’t think that Jeff is being consciously malicious toward Rick. IMO, he, like other people with Aspbergery traits, has blind spots regarding what other people think and feel. I don’t think his parents should necessarily be blamed for the way he turned out – I’ve seen kids in the same family with diametrically opposed behaviors from the git-go. For example, one of my friends is very stable and was a mid-level executive for years. She’s the legal guardian of her sister, who apparently is bipolar.

    I think Jeff will turn out very well; he’s just gotta finish growing up.
