Culture of No Complaint: The Foobs and Criticism

If you took a look at the Wikiquote entry for Lynn, you get this little gem: "Complaining is good for you as long as you're not complaining to the person you're complaining about." This sounds all cute and whimsical but it's not. What it is is a honeyed-up way of a valid target of criticism going 'La-La-La, I can't hear you' when his or her victim calls him or her on acting like a jackass. That's because, as we've noticed, the Pattersons are among the thinnest-skinned people on the planet, not to mention the most besotted by vanity. Their pleasant, vapid grins are, as we all know, a thin veneer of gentility hiding a burning ball of rage. Their imbecile vanity and default hostility lead them to believe the slightest murmur of disagreement with their inflated self-image comes from the same hatred that really animates them. How else do we explain the Stupid Train Fuck's walloping April over the head with sufficient force to loosen hair-clips and eyeglasses, let alone the angry look on his face? The reason they're like this is that their creator thinks that people don't have to accept criticism either. This is sort of why there's no negative responses to the hybrid: her handlers know enough about their boss to realize she doesn't have it in her to take criticism. Dish it out, yes! Take it? Never.
