On the moving of the goalposts......

Of course, the annoying thing about this arc is that we're about to launch into yet another irritating example of Lynn using the strip as a means to nag her family about how they're displeasing her. The victim that's up next is, of course, her son Aaron and the crime he's been tried and convicted of is not being sufficiently grateful to Lynn for providing for him. We start things off with Mike barging into the library despite having been told that he is NOT ALLOWED to INVADE her place of employment, follow that by his not being willing to help with the chores, continue on with not being willing to spend money on the mother who does soooooooooo much for him because it'll only occur to him that she worked hard to make his life better twenty years after she dies and ends with his not wanting to do the right thing because the opinion of scruffy little boys is more important that the actual human being called MAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

While it is true that Lynn can pay lip-service to the idea that money isn't everything, the real problem Aaron seemed to me to have had was that nothing he could possibly have got Lynn could satisfy her. Just as that poor waitress in the Jan Wong interview tried her best only to get abused because Lynn kept moving the goalposts of acceptable treatment, it looks to me as if he and Katie were the victim of her pious inability to be satisfied with what they did for her.
