Under the H: Hypocrisy.

The irritating thing about having to watch Elly make a morose jerk of herself whining about the folly of having to participate in a silly game that is a waste of time because they don't let her win or bend over awkward to accommodate her that we have to remember that she is the first off the mark whining "How do you know if you like something if you never try it?" when her children express distaste for a food-stuff or activity. Mike is not allowed to not like mushrooms or brussel sprouts and no one is allowed to not like having to write thank-you letters to relatives.

The reason this is irritating is that Elly insists that nothing will change her mind about silly bingo or beeping machines. She is somehow magically immunized from having to lower herself to something not to her tastes and she is supposedly hardened against having to learn that she's wrong about anything because there seems to be one rule for her and one for everyone else.

The irritation is compounded by having to remember that commenting on the dichotomy will result in an angry explosion at someone who is clearly trying to destroy and humiliate her or frighten her to death or some other debating tactic of someone who fears admitting that she doesn't actually know what she's talking about. What seems to be happening is that Elly would rather stomp around and claim to be right than actually be right.
