    Whatever, Bets. You are pushing Tiff with the definition corrections and all Tiff wants to do is talk with you and re-do the botched dinner. Go pick on someone else.

    Well, Well. Seems there isn’t a romantic bone in Bets’ body.

    ANYWHERE.

    She reminds Me of Diana Christensen, played by Faye Dunaway, from the movie “Network.” Diana has been described as a person with “very little interest in love or sexuality, preferring power thru ratings,” or in Bets’ case, social media followers. In the movie, Diana was portrayed as a relentless, ruthless professional, whose work and interests are her life. Kinda like Bets.

    Yet according to the Evans crew, Bets is supposed to be the “perfect match for Gunther??” Well, a couple more young women like Bets’ in Gunther’s life and he’s going to turn into a raving Howard Beale.

    Tiffany? Give Bets her money and a semi-heartfelt apology and quickly show her the door.

    Bets is being a pain in the rear-end. Maybe after hearing this argument, Gunther will emerge from the curtains and say, “Forget it, Bets! I’ve had enough of you!” After all, he does have a temper.

    Bets is very tiring because of her extreme focus on her social media. I always felt she used Gunther for his sewing abilities. She just wants to post pictures of herself and always seems to have that ‘Hey, look at me’ attitude. Like so many nowadays their self worth seems to be determined by the number of likes and followers they have. Guess I’m just too old for all that balony. Her world would come to an end if her phone dies or the grid drops for any length of time.

    I think Bets sarcasm is directed at traits that aggravate her about Tiff, namely her shallowness and not being very well educated given her presumptive wealth privilege, but Bets has faults herself, which gives Tiff good reason to be aggravated as well. But the punch line question in panel three hits home for both of them. How it fits into the Bets/Gunther arc is hazy, but I think these two might surprise with a resolution to their issue, then the haze may begin to clear.

A Trekkie Con is set for summer in Florida…Gunther wonders if he can reach Rosa in time to get her to come and join him…

    Odd jump in scenery there. Did Bets go through the front door or did they walk around the side?

    Either way, it appears Tiffany has yet to apologize. If so then Bets has legitimate reasons to be testy. Indeed, Tiffany may not apologize at all, and may argue with Bets that she was right all along.

    So here’s my best guess for what will happen the rest of the week. Tiffany is not going to apologize. But she is going to blurt out that Gunther told her to apologize. Bets, realizing that Gunther was on her side after all, rushes off to reconcile with Gunther. Tiffany exults in the fact that she never apologized nor gave Bets her money back.

    A fight between Tiffany and Bets seems more and more probable. They are both stubborn and Bets seems absolutely not interested in making peace with her former friend, who probably still hasn’t prostrated herself at her feet apologising. I’m sad for Gunther because he risks that Bets showering him with insults just for being there.

    Tiffany is so incredibly stupid and arrogant! I don’t see how Bets (who is smart and motivated) can even stand to be around her. Now she will be commanded to sit. Then she will be commanded to eat – with Gunther. Will she be commanded to discuss their relationship as well? What if she’s not hungry? I am willing to bet that Tiffany will never apologize or give her money back. If that happens I can only assume that the writer for this comic supports the entitlement attitudes of the wealthy elite, and that is really sad.

    I think if someone I had issues with in a business deal started pulling all of these things to apparently avoid giving a refund I’d be mighty suspicious. There is a way to try to mend a friendship, and there is a way to resolve a business issue, but putting aside any of Bets’s personal issues, if it were me I would be very wary that what was going on was different from what I was told on the phone. Clearly Tiffany is up to something.

    Bets was not portrayed this way most of the time she was in the strip. She had some annoying flaws but she was nice to Gunther and Tiffany. Same way with Quill. He was decent until the very end right before he was cut from the comic. I hope Bets leaves quickly and we don’t have to see much more of this nasty personality.

    Bets is a bit like Bern with Luann. But, what is shown here is that G understands B and knew that she was more concerned about being “right” than about the money. Once B realizes that G made this clear to Tiff and put her up to the task of apologizing and admitting wrong, B might then see G as the close friend that she should not throw away. Tiff’s gazebo of peace will play no role in this process. Bets doesn’t care about the ceremonial (trimmings and trappings) of peace or romance but that does not mean she doesn’t care about peace and romance per se.

    If Gunther is seeing this, it should be one more hint to RUN not walk away… Alas most don’t learn the signs of “high emotional maintenance” until it’s too late.

    Hell the fact that she’s made no effort to contact him or follow up since “asking for space” spells out that it’s over in my book (assuming it’s been a week or more since the dinner)

    Now we see the real problem: two women who always think they’re right. In this case, Bets is right on both counts but can’t look past what Tiff is saying to see the romantic situation she has set up. Will Gunther show up to be the peacemaker? Will Bets run again or face him with some answers. I’m betting she runs.

    I’m hoping Gunther is not part of Tiffany’s plan . If he’s smart he is home probably getting caught up in school.If this drama is in real time and Bets has ghosted Gunther for 2 months, the relationship is over. In that case it might be fitting for her Instagram followers to hear how Bets treated Gunther.If she has ghosted him more than a week, she’s lost any justification unless she gives a reason quick… beyond needing space.Tiffany has grown a lot to offer money back to Bets, but Bets seems to want a fight. Word of advice Bets, don’t start arguments with people wanting to give you money

    Tiffany has that Pitt amnesia condition again. She seems to have forgotten the times Bets helped her with schoolwork to avoid failing her classes, saved her from the dorm party bullet that would have gotten her expelled and then photographed, listed and sold items on line so Tiffany would have some much needed cash. Instead, she treated her friend like an uncivilized dweeb when she wanted a pirate themed dinner and acted like her own personal opinions were the only ones that mattered. By staging the Gazebo of Whatever, she is again demonstrating that she thinks her exceptionally refined tastes are superior to those of Bets. If Tiffany had been smart, and more receptive, she would have developed a business plan for theme dinners (including romantic) and delivered her customers’ request for a pirate night. Then she could have written an accurate paper describing the event and received an honest A.

    I am really finding Bets purposeful antagonism of just about anything Tiffany says to be frustrating. All it is leading to is more rancor and argumentativeness between both of them. If Bets was feeling that much animosity, she really should have simply told Tiffany “no” in whatever media Tiffany had contacted her with. To go to Tiffany’s house, when invited specifically in this fashion….. and then to be antagonistic and seemingly unwilling to participate….. just seems a) to be a waste of everyone’s time, b) rather foolish for Bets, and c) truthfully does not help Bets accomplish a sense of “winning” in this situation for herself…. she makes Tiffany’s efforts seem kinder than Tiffany’s efforts actually are/were.

    In a bigger-picture way, I wanted to ponder the future of Bets in this comic:

    1. I really enjoyed Bets as a character…. even when she was shown to be excessive (at least to me) in her social media focus.

    2. But, the way the issues here with Tiffany and with Gunther are currently playing out…. in some ways it seems that Bets may be “volcanoized” and written out of the comic. I base this on the idea that the two current arc trajectories of her character seem to leading to a “last hurrah” focus before she is banished.

    3. And, I must also say…. that TO ME the way Bets responded a) to the fancy dinner as opposed to the pirate dinner, and b) the way that Bets vacated after Gunther said “I love you.” …… BOTH OF THESE ACTIONS did not seem to me to be the way Bets would respond to these situations given what we knew of her previously. So, the harsh/abruptness of how the dinner went and how she left Gunther both make me also think she is being written out.

    Tiffany went to a lot of trouble to create a calm, quiet space. It seems Bets isn’t interested in sitting, talking or being calmed; she just wants her apology, money and to get out. If Gunther is there, I hope he stays hidden. She’s liable to go off on another rant, or turn and walk out…again. She sure is critical.

    If Gunther is hiding somewhere, I hope he stays hidden. If Bets sees him while she is so combative, she will only hurt Gunther more. No way would Bets be nice to Gunther in her current mood.

    People seem to think Bets is being confrontational. Maybe a little seeing as how she is there to collect from a person who doesn’t appear to want to pay up. But as I see it all she’s doing is catching Tiffany’s mistakes and misspeaks. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Bets could have appreciated Tiff’s creation – the Pagoda of Peace – but instead chose to find petty faults. Early on, I could see why Gunther liked Bets (smart, shared interests, attractive), but now? It’s a tough sell.

    The customer is always right, Tiff. You invited Bets over and refunded her presumably. Bets can walk any time she wants. Make a decision at this point Tiff- either write bets off as a problem customer, find someone else to deal with her, keep the business idea and go find other customers OR accept that Bets is your only customer, hold onto her, and if she says she’s right, she’s right.

    Also, something that has bugged me for a while. How is Bets making money? Who are her customers? I know she’s on social media, but is she getting $ from affiliate links? Direct ads? I’ve never seen Bet’s exhibit any customer service skills, very much the opposite, so who are her customers? Also how has she been covering for gunthers mystery absence to her presumably numerous followers?

    I like Tiff’s Pagoda of Peace. At least she’s trying.

    Bets, on the other hand, seems to have a monkey (a.k.a. Gunther) on her back, as the saying goes….

    Yeah, double checked. Like a smart buiness woman, bets asked for an apology and a refund before entering on Monday. Tiff is lucky Bets is choosing to play along given she has her refund $ already. Bets is a grown woman, it’s totally her right to manage her relationships & cut and run if she needs time to sort out her feelings. Tiff is major overstepping and I can’t blame Bets for not appreciating that as it is BETS relationship with Gunther that Tiff is butting into.

    So suppose Tiffany offers Bets a pirate-themed dinner—maybe as an alternative to a refund, but maybe even in addition to a refund. What will Bets say? Note that there would be the little issue that if Bets wanted a date for this dinner, she’d have to decide whether to invite Gunther or whether to look for someone else.

    Of course, we don’t know yet whether Tiffany will make such an offer. So the question of how Bets would respond may become moot.
