Irritant from a Fooby planet.....

You'll have noticed that I've started to use a slang expression that's current in Canada and quite probably the Northern US to describe Mike: "shit disturber." The best definition of the phrase is "an individual who creates unnecessary conflict and unhappiness where it is especially not required." We're going to see an example of that pretty soon when Mike makes a point of enraging Elly when it looks as if he should have known better. After all, he'd spent the better part of the last month being reminded that Elly does indeed feel as if everyone wants to chain her to the kitchen and rob her of her freedom to express herself so that they can laugh at her for daring to be thought of as anything more than a grinning slave woman. The problem is that he does know what the people around him feel. He knows that Elly feels trapped in her house, he knows that Lizzie feels as if she doesn't belong and Hell, he even knows that Deanna is very sensitive about her appearance. He just doesn't care. To him, the feelings, hopes and dreams of other people are not to be taken as seriously as his own; to him, they're just a means by which he can entertain himself at their expense. Worse, he never God-damned grows out of it. Even unto the latest days, he's got himself convinced that Liz's feelings are one big joke because he thinks that it's required of him to be a disruptive annoyance. It's like how his shit-distrurber father John won't allow himself to consider the feelings of other people because of his delusion that being treated with dignity and respect rewards people for the weakness he fears more than anything because he thinks that everyone else is the same sort of heartless poltroon he is.
