Mike Patterson: Public Irritant

As I've said before, there's a cost to the Pattersons' refusal to pay any constructive attention to their children. Since he desperately yearns for the contact he's supposed to have and his idiot parents begrudge him the things they must do to keep him alive, the natural tendency all children have to believe that everyone in their immediate vicinity was placed on this Earth to entertain them is amplified and mutated into something negative and self-destructive: the need to impress people who want to get a rise out of him so they can laugh at him for being a gullible sap. Now that he's six again, we see that he'll do whatever stupid thing Lawrence suggests so he'll fit in and people will like him. As the years burn away, he does more stupid stuff to impress more creeps and gets more lectures from idiot parents who won't see that their "We gave birth to you and still you want more? You selfish monster, what do you want from us?" attitude is why he acts up and out.
