John versus competent workmanship.

If the reload lasts long enough, we're going to be watching John make an ass of himself dragging his feet about remodeling the kitchen in five years or so. The reason he gives is the expense and inconvenience of it all but I don't quite think that that's the case despite Lynn's best efforts to make it look as if he's great at spending money on toys for himself but crappy at pleasing Elly. It seems to me that the row Phil stupidly walked into by not renting a moving van like a sane, decent person points us all to the truth. The dumbass got into a pointless, divisive and ridiculous argument because he wanted to save money and be self-sufficient.

This, you see, is what made John drag his feet for so long. He didn't want to look like less of a man by having people come in and do something that he thinks that his fellows would expect that he could take care of easily. The problem, of course, is that John is a model builder first and foremost. He can be trusted with eyesore vandal-magnet train layouts, doll-houses and anything that human beings do not use. If the go-kart he didn't build strong enough for children to use is any indication, he's not to be trusted with anything a person could operate and must be shooed away or distracted with a non-job that would appeal to the dumb little kid in him.
