    You’re heading for the wrong career field, Bernice.

    For the first time that I can remember, Bernice suddenly realized mid-destruction that she’s being destructive. Could she be starting to get a clue?

    Ye CATS! Bernice has got a lot of GALL to call someone else “Strict!”

    Miss R.A. Prison Camp Commandant of 2019!

    And just yesterday I was saying how great it was that Jack and Tara weren’t around to talk Luann out of being a TA.

    And NOW Look. Bernice is doing a bang up job, in that department. SHEESH! Again, and Again and AGAIN, I ask: “WHY are Bernice and Luann Friends??”

    Just goes to show, that Bets is now currently the BEST Friend that ANYONE has in this Strip.

    And “Brainy Bernice” is just mad that no Professor in her right mind has ever ask “HER” to be a Teacher’s Assistant!

    So THERE!!! ;)

    She’s not wrong. Been there, done that…made me wonder why anyone would choose teaching as a profession.

    Unfortunately for Luann, if she wants to see a mean, gossipy and horrid student, she doesn’t have to look any further than Bernice. I think this is a good sign. If Luann can tolerate Bernice as a friend, what students can compare to that?

    Looking at the bright side, at one point Bernice realized how Luann was reacting and attempted to repair (and i strongly doubt she would do the same for anyone else). Surely the first day as a TA will be terrible, but I’m sure that Luann will adapt quickly her new role and will do great things.

    Luann is going to do fine as a TA. That is why Zebo picked her. Her issue is confidence not ability. Besides she has Jack and Nil, and I have a feeling, a hope, that Tara registers in the class. All back-ups.

    Okay. So I was hard on Bernice earlier, and rightfully so.

    BUT, Bernice brings up an interesting point. It’s very ODD that Luann didn’t at first, consider every “downside” Bernie mentioned today, BEFORE accepting Zebo’s “job.”

    Especially after Luann turned down a teaching assistant job last year, and watching her friends RIDICULE “T.A. Howie.”

    Strange, indeed……..,

    I’ve had a lot of questions about the characters’ college experiences since they first started this new phase of their lives (like, now in the world did Bernice become an RA in her freshman year? I can’t imagine that happening anywhere, ever).

    The most recent one is this: Do community colleges use teaching assistants? I mean, I have 7 college degrees, including two from a junior college (which is what we used to call community colleges back in the stone age) and I work at a small public university, and I’ve never come across a class with a teaching assistant. Some of the science faculty here have Lab Assistants, but they just manage material and set up and assist with labs—they aren’t responsible for any actual teaching. My impression is that TAs are used in large R1 universities where the freshman classes are huge and the faculty don’t have time for mere undergraduates, but a community college? Never heard of a TA there.

    I mean, the junior college I went to was pretty large, but as far as the classes were concerned, it was like 13th and 14th grade. I don’t remember having a class of any kind that was larger than 25 or so students.

    Is my sample size too limited?

    Bernice is right. Luann should stick with safe and boring. Why take a challenge when she can stick with snot nosed kids at a day care? Didn’t she duck out on that trip to New York with that Aussie what’s his name for exactly that same reason?

    Leave it to Berniece to take all the air out of Luann’s balloon! But we all know folks like this. They mean well. They just can’t seem to see the picnic for the ants. But you can’t let them suck the joy out of every little thing. Luann needs to go talk to someone positive, like Pru, or Dez, who will get her feeling positive again.

    My grandmother always said if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all. Berniece should have held her peace and let her friend enjoy the moment. Nervousness, if it showed up, would be much easier to deal with when she’s actually in the classroom. And it might not have occurred at all, had Berniece not planted the seed for it.

    Poor Luann missed out on the big Souffle lingerie sale. Now, let’s check out Bets trying to help Tiffany solve her problems in the same stage of undress. Those boxer shorts just aren’t Tiff.

    For me, I can understand Bernice…. she was showing concern and compassion for her friend, Luann. It unfortunately (and unintentionally) backfired horribly because it created anxiety in Luann. But, that was not Bernice’s intent.

    Bernice is an analytical sort (much like Gunther). But, as her psychology/counseling aspirations suggest…. she is also very much into discussion of feelings (unlike Gunther). So feelings are what she like to discuss, while at the same time, she is also analytical in focus….. she likes to dissect out things into parts and pieces. For Bernice this seems the right way to approach things and that is what she typically is seen doing (think even of the camping behavior she exhibited).

    Luann was not ready for that sort of talk at that time…. because that is not a way Luann focuses on things (as we regularly see). She is more of a feeling person who is non analytical about them.

    I think Bernice will eventually be able to be an excellent counselor/therapist as she learns more the “trade” so-to-speak… her analytical skills will be very helpful… but need to be more internally thought about by her as a counselor/therapist and less externally expressed to the patient.

    The fun of this week (for me, anyhow) continues!

    Bernice looks at the dark side of things… too dark (her idea of being a realist); conversely Luann imagines everything with rose colored glasses. I think most people lean one way or the other. As long as Luann doesn’t respond by turning down the job, she’ll benefit by having her expectations set low.

    Methinks Bern is not going to be a very good counselor. She needs to take some classes on how to encourage people, not bring them down. OTOH, Bernice’s probably right in her assessment, but it will be good for Lu anyway.

    Does Bernice know how to encourage her friends? She can say something besides snarky, condescending, and sarcastic comments. She needs to drop the “doom and gloom” attitude and adopt “you can do it, i know you can.”

    I’d rather see Luann interacting with Dez and/or Pru instead of Bernice. Friends do outgrow each other, and it sounds like this friendship needs to end. Bernice needs to go the way Delta did – someplace else and hardly in the strip any more. Friends should be supportive… what I’ve seen from Bernice in recent years doesn’t come close. A wet paper towel has better support..
