For help on how to follow a comic title,
Stop reading my replies, then. It’s your right to do that, but not your right to tell me what I can, or can’t post here when I’m ON TOPIC and not attacking anyone.
False narrative, my butt. In a reasonable family (which the Halpers are depicted as being), no daughter is “homeless” because she promised her room to her nephews at a time when she didn’t need it but circumstances changed, and she now needs housing. Her earlier offer was not chiseled in stone, and only a-holes would hold her to that and make her fend for herself.
Reasonable families work things out, but they need to know. Bernice clearly didn’t tell them anything and went crying to Luann in a panic.
People were talking about Bernice, and mentioning that she’s living in that house. So, that triggered me into asking “why?” and mentioning that the reasons for her homelessness crisis are over (which is so conveniently forgotten).
Nope. I’m on topic, and I’m discussing the characters, what they did and what’s admirable/not so admirable about them. Just because you don’t agree with me doesn’t mean I should shut up and go away for your sake.
I’d read, and re-read that strip MANY TIMES. She told Luann that she was homeless. That’s way different from “it’s too crowded back home”. The Halpers had NOT refused her, rendering her truly homeless.
She had OPTIONS. Could have talked to Ben, or the folks about working something out, but, she ghosted them and never gave them a chance. It’s all on her.
Not Ben’s childhood home. He’s just there temporarily. He’s a decent guy. Any decent guy in his shoes would gladly share his room with his own kids to make room for his sis, reclaiming her rightful spot in her own childhood home.
Agree. Calling 911 is no joke. And shouldn’t be portrayed that way, even in comics, or comedy TV shows.
Not even a battery powered emergency light or lantern. Pathetic.
Now, with her walking around with a LIT CANDLE, what’s she gonna do when/if it blows out? And, will the housekeeper have to scrape all of the solidified wax off the floors and carpets because Tiff is wandering around the house with a freakin’ lit candle (because there is no other source of light, of course)?
Sheesh. Like it’s the 18th century, and all the advances in energy-efficient LED lights that can run for DAYS on a coin battery don’t exist….
She used to be the “Scarlett O’Hara” of the Luanniverse. Spoiled, vain and rich. But when her(their) world collapsed, Tiff (and Scarlett) got street smarts, worked their butts off and pulled themselves up by their bootstraps. It was Bernice with the “I’m helpless, SAVE ME” schtick that made her the “Ashley Wilkes” of the Luanniverse.
And now the Ashley syndrome is leaking into Tiff. What a shame.
I know. Tie up the 911 dispatcher (who knows, maybe Pitts has only ONE), so someone else having a real emergency can’t get through. Because this is a comic strip, and 911 is just for cheap laughs.
And for all the progress she’s made with the years-long Ann arc, now they have her slipping back into being a child again.
