The Malady lingers on: martyrdom in reloadville.

There's another irritating constant that carried over from the old order to the new: the stupid and counterproductive belief that being a good wife and mother means immolating oneself on the pyre of your family's selfishness. In the first iteration of the Patterson saga, both DeeDoormat and Flapandhonk had been reduced to slaving away for their ludicrous dickweed husbands. Did it occur to wither person that enabling the morons was a dumb idea? Nope. Gotta stand by their arsewipes. This counterproductive tendency has, sadly, carried over into the perfected version. RetJohn is still, as eeknight said, fifty pounds of dick in a thirty pound bag and RevElly still lets him get away with it because she doesn't want to admit that her dad was right about him all along. She'll be browbeaten into getting a dog she doesn't want in no time and loving it.
