    So this week ends with Luann humiliated by Bernice, who has transgressed with Nancy’s bookkeeping system. Nancy’s depression about her age remains unaddressed. Nothing has changed. Hilarity has been strangled as it has so often.

    Bernice’s insecurity leads her to people-pleasing behavior, such as seeking Nancy’s approval through this rather obvious and ostentatious “good girl” maneuver – which not so coincidentally makes Luann look “less than” by comparison.

    I wonder if that insecurity is also behind all insults she sends Luann’s way (when Nancy’s not around to hear them, of course)?

    Now Luann is competing with Bernice. Don’t worry, Luann. I think your mom will appreciate your attempts at housework but definitely not Bernice’s idea of improving her life. Know what Bernice? Help Nancy by paying rent so she won’t have to work at The Fuse.

    Nancy is not going to kick Bern out of the house because she is trying to help. That’s silly. Luann needs to be reminded or her need to be more helpful around the house, but this is not going to amount to an eviction explosion. Wishful thinking for some.

    I love how Luann’s last sentence sounds like a hint on what she thinks Bernice did by reorganising Nancy’s work. Seriously, Luann is doing the useful things here, Bernice may have made a huge mess and she deliberately avoided Luann’s warning. Maybe Nancy will appreciate them both? Maybe this is the beginning of a competition between “sisters” to have the love of the mother? That would be a great thing to see!

    Its totally uncool that it seems that Luann feels that she has to over compensate in order to feel like she is doing something useful and will be noticed. If Luann would just stick to the little things like cleaning up and asking her parents if there is any thing she can do to help, well that is all she needs to do. Bernice is the type of person who likes to dominate a situation. She would swat a mosquito with a sledgehammer. Thus she is overbearing and very tone deaf. Bern might have done a good job but somehow I think Nancy liked her paperwork just the way it was and it is quite rude to go through people’s stuff without permission in the first place.

    What Bern did reminds me a bit of one of the first Mary Tyler Moore episodes. Lou Grant comes into work and goes in his office and sees his desk meticulously organized and he yells for Mary who politely says she straightened out his messy desk for him. Well, in a nutshell, Lou does not like it and makes her put everything back out again. So MTM and Bern both acted without asking but that is where the similarity ends. If I remember Lou’s logic was that he felt a messy desk made him look busy and I think Mary was still new to the station and was trying to impress her new boss. Bern on the other hand just is being a bit of a busybody here, instead of just doing some housework (like Luann) or volunteering to go help at the Fuse, she does the one thing that could actually anger Nancy. I think Luann also knows this but simply says: “Yeah, I have seen this before.” and decides to just do some more housework and wait for the fireworks to erupt.

    Anyhow, RIP Ed Asner, the guy had a heck of a career on TV as well as with the SAG. The last I saw of him on TV was playing a diamond smuggler in the new Hawaii 5-0, reviving a character he played almost 40 years before.

    Bernice is so self righteous and smug, she makes me sick. Luann, on the other hand looks like she still has doubts. As much as I would like to see Bernice really get blasted for over-stepping, I know that is never going to happen, so I would just like to say that Luann is the one who actually did things that would be very helpful for a working mom. Cleaning and straightening up would always be appreciated, and someone doing the typical “mom” chores (like cleaning toilets) would be an absolute hero.

    It looks like Berniece has a real talent for organization! Unless she has really messed things up (and I don’t think she has) Nancy should appreciate it. She should also appreciate Luann’s efforts even though honestly Luann should have been doing things like this all along. Just keeping that messy room clean consistently would’ve a big help to her mom. Folding and putting away laundry, vacuuming and dusting should be done all along with both parents working. I hope Luann gets praised for this and chooses to continue it. They are BOTH trying to help Nancy and that is very sweet.

    I wouldn’t want someone organizing my paperwork, furniture, home, etc. because I prefer doing it myself. Nancy may turn out to be a personality who does not care. I must confess, I did pull a Bernice. I organized all my parent’s photos (which were in a big trunk) into manilla envelopes by individuals (i.e., my dad, my mother, brother, myself, niece, nephew, grandmother, grandfather, aunt 1, aunt 2, uncle 1, uncle 2, etc.). My dad never noticed. My mother wasn’t too happy about it. Now, 15 years later, my mother thinks she was the one who did the organization.

    The overwhelming consensus is that Bernice has gone too far and Nancy will have a fit when she finds out, But this is the Luannivers, which is currently written by Karen Evens, who identifies with Bernice, not Luann. So when or if Nancy ever find out she will praise Bernice while telling Luann, ‘Fine. You;ve done the toilets, now clean up your room.’

    Aladar30 makes an interesting point. To those that say Bernice carries “snarky” comments to the extreme. I propose they look to the last panel. Luann’s exit comments most assuredly is a denigration of Bernice’s effort. And, by the looks on Bernice’s face, she recognizes it as such.

    Luann’s “nasty” little exit comment is the classic definition of double entendre.
