Snarky Candiru2

Elly and getting away with not doing anything wrong.

There's another factor that we need to remind ourselves of when reminding ourselves of why Elly's children do not come to her for advice like she hopes they would; I've already talked about her need to punish her children for trying to get away with things and thus add to her horrible burdens. What I should have reminded you all of is that she's just as mad when there's a perfectly innocent and even helpful explanation for whatever it is that she wants to ground (or pound) her kids for; this is because they've just gotten away with making their poooooooooooooor, put-upon mother get all upset over nothing.

That's right. I went there and I brought back some souvenirs; Elly is so in love with the idea that everyone in the world wants to keep her on her knees because she is too awesome to be allowed to walk the Earth that she can't possibly admit that she's wasting her time being pointlessly angry at those around her. Granted, she has intermittent episodes in which she's reminded that she's a bloody-minded killjoy with a hair-trigger temper whose parenting style consists of witlessly imposing arbitrary punishments based on a ludicrous misreading of her children's motives but her dimwit vanity and her need to not pay close attention to her children lest she be seen as enjoying life and thus being evil and hedonistic will always win out.
