I think it has little to do with being ignorant or nice...she pays a lot of the rent and they’re too lazy to make a change. i suppose they think they can always just up and leave the moment she has a major crisis and stops paying...but it won’t be like that. It’ll be a slow gradual decline as she pays a little less each month while demanding a little more care and inconvenience, but they’re still there because it’s easier than finding a new place and paying it all themselves. They’re frogs boiling in water.I think the reason the trip to Pride was so distasteful is because there is a video of her going the year before, and the difference between the two years really shows how low she’s sunk.
The year before, she was shopping for sparkly rainbow crap, went to the actual parade and did some human stuff, including eating out of course. She could walk, not long or far but enough to manage the event. The next year she puts out a bunch of videos of nothing-just her sitting in the motel with Becky doing tags, and getting snippy because Becky took two mints instead of one. The whole reason they were there, the parade, Amber wasn’t physically able to do and I’m not sure Becky understood that until they got there. The only thing they did was eat in restaurants, and that was Amber’s sole reason for going.
And this year, she won’t be able to go at all.
It really is surprising to me that the boys haven’t moved out. We know it’s worse behind the scenes, so why don’t they have any desire to save themselves for what’s coming? If Amber is truly confined to bed in the next six months (50 more pounds should do it) and Becky goes and spends another few days with her mom, who is going to toilet and feed Amber while she’s gone? Somebody will have to and the obvious choice is Eric. Although Amber is crafty, she might be ingratiating herself with Rafe and Heather for this reason.
Are the guys really so stupid they don’t see this future, or are they really kind-hearted enough to not mind? Or do they think it won’t affect them ever? Hard to imagine. I suppose they could be too poor to leave but that’s pathetic, this is something they should have thought was worth saving for. If we could see it coming, they surely could.
If it was me I’d get the fuck out of that house by next month. It’s a nice house but not worth what’s about to happen in it.
