On the fatal four (and three and a half) words.

As we've all seen, Lynn seems to have a zero-tolerance policy for real people behaviour. She clearly expected Rod and Aaron to get along much better than you'd expect a step-dad and a child who was supposed to 'adjust' too damned quickly were supposed to, she seems to have expected him to not be jealous of Katie, she super seems to have expected children to be grinning little dummies who sat all day long in glass cases staring out into space because 'everyone' knows that kids aren't supposed to move, think or speak except if an adult wills it so it's sort of obvious that most of the tension in her life comes from the fact that an answer that never satisfied her when she was given it must be the beginning, middle and end when she used it.

This is because we're dealing with the fact that most of the parents in the strip boil over in rage about their evil, rebellious monster children who are out of control because the answer "because I said so" isn't enough of one. Granted, we are dealing with stupid people who do think that the only reason children do ANYTHING is to cruelly and selfishly torment the parents they hate (owing to said parents being boomer imbeciles who scream like the spoiled five-year olds they're always gonna be) in the first place; what compounds the problem is when Mean Old Mommy and Daddy show their lack of faith by saying cruel and mean things like "Hey, Elly! You pitched a fit when we said that so how come you do it?", the only rational response is to bleat "But that's different!!" because of the whole being a smug and hypocritical nitwit thing wilted flower children like Elly and Connie are rocking. Given that Elly and John raised their children to be as stupid, materialistic, self-absorbed and hateful as they are, we can look forward to a future in which Meredith and the others have nowhere to turn for relief from appeals to shame or authority.
