    Up to this point I was on Bet’s side. She did pay for something she didn’t receive so her anger was understandable. Now she seems to be blind to the fact she is acting like Tiffany just a bit.

    Eating someone else’s fries without their permission is not ok, but don’t know if Bets and Gun have a previous deal about that. I do think it’s possible that Bets is stress eating and may not be aware that she ate all of Gun’s fries.

    This might be leading up to the moment where Gunnie puts his foot down. I noticed some posts say that Gunnie is a doormat. Well yes, in high school he definitely was, everyone took advantage of him and he also let Rosa make all their decisions as well until she basically told him to go back to the states. But I think our guy has changed since then, he does not allow Les to bully him anymore. He has also stood up for himself in the past with Luann (who spread rumors about Bets and him) and Bernice (when she was using him while she pursued that oddity known as Piro) and Gunnie also kind of stood up to Tiff when he helped her cover up the fact she was partying in the other wing of the dorm with Viper, Hair, the QB and cheerleader while Bernice was having the study-a-thon. However, this will be huge step if he just stops her mid-rant and gives her a piece of his mind. I suspect he did not want to leave Tiff’s house as he saw how much effort was put in by the “romantic dinner crew”. Was Tiff a bit unreasonable and a touch inconsiderate of Bets’ feelings? Absolutely, also keep in mind that Bets does not know Tiff as well as Gunnie and perhaps may have actually expected Pirates. I hope they iron things out but this is leading up to a climax on Saturday ala Luann throwing a pendant in Quill’s face. BTW: I still miss that guy, along with Pru and Delta, I wish G&K would bring one or all

    I don’t think Gunther appreciates what Bets is saying about her childhood friend. Bets does not know their history and is naive to think she is merely a friend who went to the same school as Gunther. Gunther, beware of a girlfriend who tries to separate you from your friends. First Luann and now Tiff by blaming the whole thing on her. I hope tomorrow I will see Gunther push back and ask “Like you ignored that I needed to focus on my studies and insisted that I sew these stupid costumes? That’s what you did with Tiff – ignored what she said? Insisted that she do the pirates decor? I am noticing that you have that tendency.”

    She is so upset she eats his fries without realizing it. That in itself is not huge, but it is a marker that Bets is not noticing what Gunther is trying to do, which is to get her to realize that just being together is for him romantic. I know most comments have this, in fact are rooting for this to be a breakup event, forgetting that Bets did plan this for her and Gunther, but she needs to see beyond Tiffany and focus on her and Gunther. I still don’t think a break up is in play here, but a wakeup might be. Gunther needs to not be as passive-agressuve here and just tell her how he feels given Tiffany, for all her faults is an old friend. Then it will shift to Bets to respond. I think she will surprise those here who are so hoping this is the end for this pushy, possessive, controlling female. I think that is not it at all however. Arc time might tell.

    GnK seemingly have painted themselves into a corner with the Bets character. If Gunther doesn’t stand up for himself, he fails to develop as a person. If he does stand up and Bets leaves the strip, what is left for him? He’ll be another shmoe taking vector calculus and going to ComicCons by himself.

    My best idea for a resolution to this situation is for Bets to finally calm down with only a minor confrontation from Gunther. He arranges for them to the diners of the next TTFT where they don’t pay, but they internet-cast their meal to their fanbase. A tidy win-win for everyone, and then things can get back to the main characters.

    Bets has her own issues to deal with, but as a tertiary character I don’t see the authors investing a lot of time showing her doing that. Bets is already far ahead of Luann in terms of academics, business success, having her own fans, and being in a personal relationship. If she is going to embark on a quest to figure out her need for attention she might as well have her own strip.

    Gunther still seems to be in a passive mood. Instead of pointing out to Bets that she ate his food, he just got up to go get more. Presumably she’ll eat those, too, and he won’t say a thing about it, just look annoyed.

    She probably spent the entire meal doing nothing but complaining about Tiffany. Maybe Gunther is finally realizing that this was never going to be about them, just Bets.

    Okay, judging by the level of ranting going on in the comment section, I think we all know who the real ‘projectors’ are. Showing this much vitriol? Is this what you wish you could do with your own ‘Bets’? I think everyone should thank GnK for giving everyone a character to vent their frustrations on. Seriously, if she was out of the picture, most of you wouldn’t know what to do with yourselves, without Bets to complain about.

    Am I excusing Bets’ behavior? No. She was unappreciative to Tiffany’s efforts. But then, Tiffany was dismissive to Bets’ wishes. This makes them both flawed. It’s called being human.

    Again, not making excuses for anyone. In broader perspective; Gunther made the costumes. T.K. made the dinner. What did Bets and Tiffany do? Tell everyone what they wanted. Both girls were inconsiderate on this point. Bets should have asked if Tiffany was okay with the pirate theme, instead of bulldozing through. And Tiffany should have told Bets of the change in venue, instead of assuming they would just accept because, “Whaddaya gonna do?” ( Besides storm out? )

    I feel that we still don’t know Bets (I REALLY don’t like that name). She’s into cosplay and social media. When is she herself? She showed up through a dating app, and had no previous connection to anyone. She’s a business major (right?) Maybe she’s just a flat character, or maybe G&K have not detailed on purpose. I think it is safe to say that she has moved to major character role, which is why I am confused about the lack of development…. she almost feels like a throw back to the Knute and Mrs Phelps- one layer of personality, simply designed for character development of the major characters.

    Both Bets and Tiff are young. Both just made young people mistakes. Tiff in not making clear what she was offering (a classy dining experience) and Bets in assuming that because she is buying, she gets what ever she wants. Beginner mistakes. Don’t ask Walmart to replicate a $10k wedding cake for $50.00. They can’t do it. Don’t expect the French Laundry to serve franks and beans. They won’t.

    I think GnK are doing with Gunther what they did with Tiffany in the Awful Annie arc. Not as drastically by any means.

    But GnK have signaled Bets dominating character from the very first. Consider:

    https://www.gocomics.com/luann/2019/04/06. Bets selects their after-meal date. When Gunther suggests eating first, she moves the lunch venue to Taco Town.

    https://www.gocomics.com/luann/2019/04/13. Read Bets’ comment in panel 1 in light of subsequent Bets-Gunther episodes. WOW! Little did we know then!

    https://www.gocomics.com/luann/2019/06/12. In this one strip, Bets brands Gunther as “Gun,” and declares that they are “a thing.” All of which he blithely accepts with an added double entendre in panel 3… “Is that a phone in your pocket or do you love me and my thing.”

    This is also the era where much attention was paid to Bets’ skin tone. Compare April 6th to June 12th for example.

    SO! There should be no surprise here! In GnK’s eyes Bets has dominated this relationship from their first date and apparently, will continue to do so. Perhaps there will be a series of break-ups and reconciliations with this couple. That would be a way to stretch out the drama. It worked for Brad and Toni and for Luann and Quill.

    I’ve voted up all the comments, because I’m enjoying the argument.

    Saturday, two possible outcomes:

    1. Gunther returns to the table and says, “We’re done.”

    2. Bets leaves the table and realizes, “What have I done?”

    Gunther should have smothered those French fries with mayonnaise like they do in Holland. At least that’s according to the movie “Pulp Fiction.” Then Ms Bets would be too busy gagging instead of complaining.

    And I have to agree with RSH.. Gunther should pretend to leave for more fries, but actually sneak out and call an Uber and escape with what’s left of his life. Or better still, call Luann to come pick him up, since she indirectly got him IN this mess.

    “Bets.”

    Nice idea.

    Poorly implemented.

    In all actuality (Mord), I do not want this relationship to end and i would wish that after Bets has fully vented Gunther calmly states his views. he may have anger outbursts to Les and Irma (in the past), but Bets is his girlfriend and that’s different. Right now he is just processing things.

    This relationship (Gun & Bets) is engaging and it contributes alot to the strip. It’s also common these days (especially on college campuses). Moreover, Bets and Tiff actually have a lot in common despite their different cultures and upbringings. It is never lost on me that Bets helps Tiff with her classes (not to forget she helped Tiff sell the lingerie to get $ to pay for expenses…. yes she took a generous cut for herself and Gun). If Tiff was smart she would have found a little piece of pirate memorabilia to put on the table (a little ship wreck model) that Bets could take home as a gift. It might have avoided a lot of this angst and it would not have destroyed the romantic atmosphere that she wanted to create.

    Without Bets & Gunther and Tiff & Bets, this strip would lose a lot of flavor. I want it to stay

    This is a comment referencing both TODAY’s panels and YESTERDAY’s panels:

    Bets and Tiffany are unfortunately “over the top” currently in my opinion….

    1. While we have known that Bets is “all about” her social media presence, I am not liking that Greg is having delve even deeper into being TOO MUCH about her social media presence. I am wondering/worried that Greg is aiming to break up Bets and Gunther…. and I would be quite disappointed if that were to happen. But, in the same vein, I am a bit disappointed that Greg is pushing Bets’ character into an even more extreme position than it had already been regarding social media.

    2. While we know that Tiffany is all about kind of “hare- brained” ideas (gosh, in some ways she is like TJ !!!!), her immediately jumping into a SECOND rendering of her “special meal for two concept” is IMO even a bit too “hare-brained” for even Tiffany. SHE needs to dial it back a bit and remember this is/was for a school assignment. Messing up her McMansion again for another one of these “adventures” really makes no sense for her at this point.

    In terms of today’s swiping of fries by Bets…. I have to admit I do find that a bit irksome when my wife or kids have done that with me…. but it is a minor annoyance at worst. Gunther is doing the right thing at the moment… getting some more for himself, and then he should also come back and gently try to break through Bets’ laser sharp anger focus and explain to her that gobbling down his food was not really a kind thing to do.

    Illustrative words in action. Wonder if the light bulb will appear over her head! Gunther hasn’t tried to defend Tiffany yet; still avoiding confrontation, even over his fries. He does look a wee bit annoyed though.

    Be easy on Bets fries and ice-cream are the best comfort foods when feeling stressed. She probably ate hers and his without realizing it until Gun said something.

    Bets is a shallow two-dimensional character who needs more of a positive role. The fact that Bets and Gunther are an interracial couple is provoking an unfavorable response from Luann’s many readers. Few if any indications are given regarding Bet’s parents, siblings, background, or motivation behind her actions. It is a good bet that she is simply a stand-in replacement for Delta James.

    Tiffany stopped ranting, enjoyed the fantastic meal, and is looking forward to a second attempt. Bets continues to beat a dead horse. Truly insufferable. I liked Quill with Luann. They shared a passion. I think she and Jack have great rapport. It’s a shame that relationship didn’t blossom.

    Don’t blow this, Guns — she’s still the second-hottest lady in the strip. Tiffany IS self-centered, and Bets DID make a deal with her. As for the fries and the surprise tailoring job, well, with exotic girls like Bets, there’s some BS the boyfriend just has to put up with.
