Her suffering is about to begin. ✨
I still say that the University is supposed to send these notices in writing and not have the RA’s deliver them verbally. Tiff could technically challenge the increase on grounds of improper service.
Whose picture is that on the wall? Or is it a poster?
Bernice is clueing you in that you probably can’t stay in your fancy dorm room much longer. Prepare to have a roommate in a tiny room and hear her doing the bed gymnastics with somebody. Oh what fun. One of the things I disliked about dorm room was that.
Tiffany needs to have a serious talk with Anne; “do you want to help me loosen Dad’s purse strings or do you want me to move back home with you and Dad”; I’m betting that if push came to shove, Anne would do ANYTHING…short of hiring a hit man (and maybe not then)…to keep Tiffany out of the house…
Holy crap, is Bernice about to hit the nail on the head here and get Tiffany moving in the right direction?!? It feels like Evans is finally about to subvert my expectations (fingers crossed that I don’t jinx it).
that about sums it up i think, she needs to do something like that but smart i think with a little help to get back at Anne.
You’re not getting through Bernice.
I agree they need to have a one on one but i don’t know if it help.
I am getting a little confused here. I assume that Tiffany’s dad still covers her university expenses, but has cut her off from extravagant living over and above that. Bernice is about to suggest that she live in a less expensive dormitory room, but isn’t that already covered by her dad?
Okay, okay. Tiffany needs a cheaper shared dorm room. Got it, Ms R.A. But, even a shared dorm room has to be paid for. And what about when the Summer rolls around and TIFF’s roommates leave? Wouldn’t that mean that Tiff will be paying for the whole thing for several months, by herself?
I’m afraid that Tiff‘s either moving back home, or moving in the Gulag are her most viable options.
Unless she moves in with Bets. But as of yet, there is no indication that Bets even lives on campus. She, like Luann, may still live at home.
And THAT, IMHO, would make for a most interesting, highly entertaining, “living arrangement.” Especially when Mrs Ann Farrell shows up at Bets parent’s house to TRY to throw her weigh around.
Round One coming up. ;)
Not during the summer.
No, Tiffany, living in a "private, premium dorm room does NOT help your financial situation, although it obviously helps you to feel better about your life.
Tiffany’s Epiphany: she’s spending more money than she’s bringing in so she needs to **gasp**down grade to save money. She’s upset because life has hit her in the face…hard and she doesn’t like it. Now she COULD get some of her luxurious lifestyle back by asking to move back with dad but that means dealing with the wicked witch of the west, Ann Eiffel.
Bern’s pitch was only 3 feet high – but still over Tiffany’s head.
Bernice is actually doing a good job of helping Tiffany see reality. She may be a good therapist yet.
Oh, look, more things for Gunther to ebay!
You don’t know what you have, until you lose it.
Pretty luxurious digs for a college dorm room – Bern’s right, heck of a pad in which to wallow in self pity…
Tiff will probably find that the only living accommodations she can afford with her current income already has an occupant. A German Shepherd named Bruno…
Welcome to chapter six hundred and eighty-seven of “Tiff Misses the Point”.
GASP! Maybe this will really be the time when Bernice will be able to help someone with her advice? Will Bernice invite Tiffany to her own room or will find her a place in the dorm to share with someone? Or will Tiffany reinterpret Bernice’s advice in a really strange way? Again?
Bernice seems to enjoy delivering bad news… why is that not surprising?
She should take Bernice’s job… R.A. Don’t they get a free room?
Now it comes out Tiffany’s living in a room that costs more. Or is that just my lousy memory again? Still it always amuses me how Tiffany can alter the intent of a statement with her naivete.
First panel to the next step in her living arrangements, and life choices. She has to make adjustments, and we will see what is in store on that Luannverse Tiffany drama coming up. How much, and how remains to be seen.
I feel terrible for Tiffany.
Time to consider renaming this strip ‘Tiffany.’
Bottom of the 24th inning, and we still have a tie!
It’s all still about life choices, bad choices bad results, good choices hopefully better results……..
the fact is she needs a shared room, lower rent and a study partner
I KNOW people with Tiffany’s entitlement attitude – and it drives me crazy. They/she expects others to step in and bail her out, because, well, because she’s ENTITLED to it!
Tiffany’s in for a bad day I’m afraid. The only material thing she has left (her private dorm room) is about to be taken away.
Yep, looks like more eBay items. If Bernice can convince Tiff she needs to downsize. Tough sell though. TIFF’s still in “pity party” mode, not ready to remedy her situation. More intervention coming?
I don’t get it. In my day, dorm and food service costs were paid up front, like tuition. This sounds like Tiff pays dorm rent by the month. But then this is Luanniverse.
There are private premium dorm rooms?!?
One of the perks of being an SA in college was I had a private room. It was a converted storage closet and I shared a bathroom with two guys next door. If I stretched out on my bed I had to be careful or I’d bash my head or punch my feet against the walls. You had to open the entry door carefully or you smack it into the bed, and four people was standing room only. Cozy.
If Tiffany lost the weight she put on during her “dark period” she could probably make better money modeling. Wasn’t she heading in that direction at one point in her past?
I went to night school after work and never had the dorm experience. But I spent several years on a nuclear submarine and I think that experience trumps a dorm.
The Saga continues. Bets provided some life changing impetus; Tiff got a job, changed majors. Maybe Bern is the next step in the process.
I sure hope so. This saga is starting to upset my psychic balance. Ommmmmm…. ;o)
Ann said she and Tom were going to Italy while “their” bedroom was being remodeled. If that’s true, Tiff should move back home while they’re gone. She could tell the contractors to go really, REALLY slow, take their time——and jack up the price on daddy dearest as much as they can!
Not a permanent solution no, but it would give Tiff a break, give her time to regroup, maybe save some of her money and figure out a plan.
My dorm room was no where NEAR that nice.
Oh, Tiff. Those work clothes just don’t do it for you.
I don’t know of one that was!!!! Pretty niiice Tiffany.
tifrod1953 above asked for a new name for the strip.
My humble offering:
Luann Google and Snuffy Tiff!
Does anyone else think Tiffany is not going to like what Bernice will say next…?
At the rate this is going, Tiff will be living in the back of Brad’s car along with Shannon and the stolen television.
Hmmm…I’m just curious, when was the last time Daddy dearest checked in on his only child. Seems like he would do that every once in awhile. What kind of father would allow his new girlfriend to be his only information and contact with HIS daughter?
Bernice is being a good friend. I am pleased Greg is showing this more. Bernice tries really hard in everything she does. She is young, so she does make mistakes….. but truthfully, she exhibits the strongest drive to TRY to do good in all she does…. of all the regular characters, IMO.
This strong desire to try to do good always endeared me to her character.
Do not get me wrong, there are many “good” characters…. but I do feel Bernice tries the hardest of her own effort to do good. Gunther, and Luann, and many others do “good” as well, but IMO it is often because it is what they feel is expected of them. Bernice SEEMS to have it as her MISSION…. even when her efforts go completely belly up.
Pretty sure we get it, she needs to move to a double room
Absolutely insane how much living on campus costs an undergrad these days. I love watching the looks on their faces when I tell them that when I attended a major university decades ago, I had a one bedroom off campus apartment for the princely sum of $55 per month. They’ve sadly got it rough in that respect these days.
Both Bernice and Bets have a role to play here, but Bet’s doesn’t know Tiffany’s backstory; so this is where Bernice comes in. Bernice knows where Tiffany is coming from and right now I believe she is being very gentle about what needs to be done. If Bet’s saw Tiffany’s room she might not be able to display the level of understanding that Bernice is showing.
Perhaps there’s a nice little Bed and Breakfast she can move into… after she has a little yard sale, that is…
Our Tiffster is gradually facing up to the fact that she is now one of the Common Folk, neither rich nor svelte and model-like anymore. It’s tough, But she will Deal With It and move on. To a shared dorm room it is….
Tiff needs to move in with some of her friends – not sure how she would fare with an outsider….
