On abhorrent admirers in Schulz's void.

There is, of course, something else that's guaranteed to frustrate, irritate, annoy and vex the Fussbudget General: the consistent refusal of the boy known only by his last name "Schroeder" to respond to her clumsy attempts at flirtation. She, of course, doesn't help her case by not respecting his admiration of Beethoven; add that to the fact that her incessant crowing about how smart she is wears thin and you've got a recipe for bloodless indifference to an annoyance. The same refusal to take the hint and see that one's crush isn't going to reciprocate her feelings is why Linus is exasperated by Sally's adhesive nature and it would be why the Little Red Haired Girl would be annoyed with Charlie Brown had he the guts to talk to her. As it stands, she probably thinks of him as "the guy with the zig-zag stripe on his shirt with the staring problem."

What's really entertaining about watching Lucy not get that Schroeder finds her to be, at best, a nuisance is that she turns around and hollers blue murder when her abhorrent admirer makes his presence felt; said terrified bellowing almost always includes a request to supply her with disinfectant and/or iodine to ward off the perceived peril of dog germs.
