For help on how to follow a comic title,
I see where this is going; pretty soon Gunther won’t have any friends, female or male, except maybe for Bet’s friends (if she has any, offline that is)
One face onstage; another offstage
And the toothpaste is outta the tube
remember, it only took one straw to break the camels back
Still pounding your tin drum?
Bet’s statement is more than a “suggestion”.
I think Bet’s may be reassessing Gunther suitability as potential boyfriend material. Her comment in the Study Bal “is he always this weird?” and her telling Gunther to his face to “Shut up” (along with an implied threat that if he doesn’t, Bet’s is gone) does not bode well.
Better yet, try having a discussion. Maybe Bets can find out why Gunther is so upset. In the process maybe Bets will find out if Gunther is right for her. Or she for him.
The only thing Gunther had any responsibility for was his own actions. “I don’t like lying to my friends” plus that idiotic and probably illegal yelling “FIRE!” are the things he alone did. He is not responsible for what other people do. Sure, other people’s actions may disappoint him but instead of being so damn judgmental of other people he needs to examine why he acts the way he does. All that other “I don’t like(s)” just point out how emotionally immature Gunther really is.
I read it on the internet. It must be true. Telling your significant other to just “shut up” is never a good thing. Especially when coupled with an implied threat.
