    “Does Luann have any REAL friends or just the kind that trash talk her behind her back?”^^I don’t think that they are trash talking, as much as just realizing the group dynamic is different without her there… to keep bringing up her boyfriend issues while they may prefer to talk about other pursuits…. they just recognize her good and bad qualities, just like we all may recognize about our friends and family (and hopefully about ourselves, if we’re honest enough)… they’ve been best friends for years, long enough and close enough to know the good and bad about each other….

    If they were busy putting her down and gossiping with negative things about her by name to total strangers and people outside the intimate circle of the three of them, talking about her to people she doesn’t know, now THAT would be trash talking and back biting and being bad friends….

    Um…can you really say you’re friends with a person if you’re thrilled to be away from her? IDK if Evans was going for “No [currently obsessed] Luann [gushing all the time]! [She sure was fun before she started acting like that.]” but it came out more like, “Ugh, Luann sucks and we only put up with her because our creator forces us to.” That’s pretty messed up.

    Delta DID say “You know what’s great?” but some words can be taken different ways… it could be implied between them intimately that what’s great isn’t “not being her friend”… it’s getting a break from hearing certain things… who DOESNT want a break or some space from being around a brother, sister, other family member, teacher, friend, SOMEBODY…. just for a change of pace…. I maintain that THIS is what they meant (but as with all things time will tell) the line is drawn (no pun intended) when you call somebody OUT OF THEIR NAME or say I hate her guts or something like that….

    Plus, there are plenty of movies and tv shows out there, where a group of friends or family members are always driving each other crazy, but in the end you can see that they really do care….Writers know that’s what people may identify with, and will involve us in the character’s struggles or feelings or the like…they know that that’s what gets people to watch…..

    “I’m glad that they have reduced the roundness of Bernice’s face somewhat. Of course they are glad Luann is not with them for the simple reason that if she was, Luann would be on the phone to Quill, forcing Bernice and Delta to be part of the conversation. The “dong” is some type of car trouble. The repair guys when they show up will be two young men in their late teens that drive dad’s tow truck to haul the car into the service station. Another reason it is good that Luann is not there. She would be all over the two guys, stuffing Bernice and Delta in the trunk so they would not get in her way.”^^Thank you!

    Better to hear a “dong” from the dashboard than a rattling noise from inside the engine. Such as with a 1996 Audi when the bearings on its water pump decide to go. And the compressor bearing, and the serpentine belt. Cheapest repair price comes near $1,500. At least in my neighborhood.

    I can think of four reasons why it seems they may be driving on the wrong side:• (1) The white line you see is the solid white line on the side of the road. You cannot see the other side of the road because of the camber. • (2) Bernice is passing another car.• (3) They are still on a dual carriageway and the shrubbery in back of them is the median strip.• (4) They’ve swerved there thanks to Bernice having her eyes off the road and hands off the steering wheel in the first panel.

    Let’s hope it’s one of the first three.

    I’m inclined to agree with PMark about the possible reasons for the left lane depiction, but also it just dawned on me, too, that since they had spent some time in Australia, the Evanses could have let the left hand traffic thing surface in the artwork unconsciously, which of course would be conspicuous to us right lane Yanks….

    I’m glad that Murphy (Law) caught up with them! Way to kick in your best friend’s back, girls. You get what you deserve. Have either of you ever thought to tell Luann that she’s annoying as opposed to purposely leaving her out of your field trip? Besides, it wasn’t so long ago that the two of you had a little disagreement about the drama (read: lack of men) in your lives. I hope that the next few panels show smoke from the hood and an awkward call to Luann for roadside rescue!

    Not that it matters to Mr. Evans, but he just lost a constant reader of this strip. I actually found Luann to be a fun character, someone who was beginning to grow up by taking on responsibilities like taking care of a child who is her brother’s girlfriend’s charge, not hers; keeping old friends like Delta, who constantly guilts others into ‘good works’ and then doesn’t do any of the actual work herself while taking credit for it – but still immature enough to keep falling in love with less than realistic guys.

    To see that Evans actually has the so-called best friends putting Luann down leaves me with nothing but a bad taste in my mouth. Evans is probably the person who keeps posting that the comic’s name should be changed to Brad and Toni.

    Even if Luann is a drama queen, that’s still a pretty cold blooded thing for her “friends” to say. They can send her a post card, “Having a great time, glad you’re not here.” If they do have car trouble and get stuck on the side of the road I wonder how long before Delta talks Bernice into picking up trash from the side of the road while they wait for help.

    Actually, Bernice and Delta have ragged on Luann many, many times to her face about her being a drama queen. It hasn’t changed her one iota. She STILL is a drama queen. It’s what she does.

    So I cannot see why them mentioning that she is a drama queen when she isn’t there is such a bad thing. They mention it all the time when she IS there. So what’s the problem?

    And for those saying B&D are mean and left Luann out, keep in mind that this week’s strips could be happening around the same time as last week’s, to the point that Luann is busy with her new soon to be SIL and maybe already has a routine that she has with her now, and could have been going to babysit Shannon at the time, so that she couldn’t go. She could have been invited already, but declined….

    I dunno, but I think maybe some people are over-reacting to what may be rather trite comments by two people in an unfamiliar situation. Men, women, and couples all say things like “You know what’s great? No [wives/husbands/kids]!” It doesn’t mean much, if anything. It certainly doesn’t mean the speakers hates the named party. If anything, it seems like an expression of nerves, and maybe hope that this novel experience will turn out to be a good one.
