Agreed, Jeff was belittling and nit picking and perhaps harmful emotionally in his past, but the guy in this past episode threatened violence against his wife for 'talking back.' That is a whole level beyond. My main problem with Jeff actually is that he allows a lot of inappropriate sex talk and behavior in the workplace. (Hasn't he been paying attention to what happened to Paula Deen?) He was playing porn DVDs on a prior episode! I know the workers were all laughing, but still...
And all the talk about boobs and the putting tape on Zoila's butt and going through her underwear drawer in the past...dude has a long way to go.
But I still wouldn't put Jeff in the same continent as this guy in the past episode (I don't even wanna type his name) for sheer assholery. ITA.
I was watching this thinking, if her father is alive, I'm sure he's polishing that puppy right now and heading west.
I think no one will ride to her rescue and this is why...(ETA and after he said this, she said so were her parents.)
Did anyone catch that snippet at the very end where Ryan said his Dad was just like him, and his mom was like Jordan? So he's clearly continuing the cycle...
Yes, and if they have kids, the girl and boy will most likely continue it as well, abusing or being abused. Why do some people (like the A-hole's parents apparently) think being wealthy at all (and there are some far wealthier - run girl run) makes abuse okay? Either to deal out or to live with? I got the sense her parents were not wealthy though and that she feels like she hit the jackpot, a guy who'd actually put up with HER and who has nice things. And the rest, to her, probably seems normal.
And he's so busy telling her she's fat and ugly that she apparently isn't aware that some other guy with money would snap her up in a second if that was really her concern.
And I hope that is exactly what she does...or puts in her ten years and then by California law takes half...or gets a better lawyer and takes every penny. Because, just let that A-hole try to find anyone remotely similar to her, or even do more than run away from his miserable ass in a bar somewhere, if he didn't have his (probably family) money.
