Elly Patterson: Queen of Home Disimprovement.

I think it's fairly obvious that Elly does somehow equate the equipment John needs to make a living with the appliances she needs to make her unpalatable sludge; in her mind, if he can buy a new X-ray machine, he can also buy a new stove to replace the one that would take maybe twenty or thirty 1982 Canadian dollars to repair and be as good as factory-new. This is because, as I've said, she has a child's idea of finances to go along with her unfailing tendency to do the wrong thing at the worst time. Since John's attempt to introduce sense into the conversation lead her to make the stupid conclusion that he's an ogre who wants to keep all his money for himself while stinting her, she won't speak up for herself until it's too late. This is why John is due to get blindsided five or so years from now when the appliances and counters he thought only needed a little preventative maintenance were in complete disrepair; Elly might still have convinced herself that he just wanted to spend their money on toys but it looks to me as if he was overwhelmed by the results of her failure to keep on top of a problem until it became too late to do anything about it. It's also why he wound up shelling out thousands to fix a drainage problem that became catastrophic owing to Elly's dithering idiocy. In both instances, her need to be the submissive little wifey who lets hubby make the big decisions when it would her serve interests (and be what John expects of her) to stand up for herself and get things done makes her life far worse than it needs to be.
