John and his (lack of) patience.....

As you know, Lynn loves to make John look like the least competent dentist in the history of ever. We have a lot of documented evidence that shows us that he really, really doesn't have much of an attention span not the patience required to be able to focus on small details for long periods of time. Looking at him suck and fail at a job he loathes is what got us all used to the Pattersons living in a world of miracles and magic.

Contrast him with Rod who loves dentistry and seems to be fairly good at it; also contrast John with Rod and his love of modeling and his ability to get lost in the sheer joy of the tiniest of details. You might ask yourself what it is about him that Lynn resents to the extent that she makes him look like a thumb-fingered blowhard playing with toys. I should think that it's the fact that she envies and resents his having a normal work ethic. Always one to prefer mere quantity with quality, Lynn doesn't understand and doesn't like the idea of taking the time to focus on things and get them right. Since Rod cares enough to make things perfect, Lynn thinks of him as being one of the too-good-to-be-true types who somehow cheated their way to good grades because the idea of doing stuff she hates gives her the wicked jeebies.
