I’m the guy that which does Love and Capes.
I’m going to go out on a limb, being Jewish myself, that that woman is a Jewish mother… We make guilt trips a freaking art form.
not being Jewish but knowing the stereo type, I thought the same thing. does that make me a bad person?
Honey, you don’t have to be Jewish to be able to lay a guilt trip on your kids for anything related to their labor/birthing them. My mother still says I “came out too fast”–5 hours of labor, compared to my older sister’s 13. She (a Protestant) swore she’d never have a 3rd kid for fear of standing up, sneezing, and dropping kidlette #3 on the living room floor, or something.
Hey, I like this random stranger. She’s practical. 😉
Now be fair she could be greek or italian they are strong with the guilt side
Ghosts of parents past present and future?
Trust me from personal experience (as the kid), guilting them never ends well.
Because nothing says “love” like a guilt trip, amirite?
Or if that does not work there’s: I brought you in this world, I can take you out of it.
Evil Brain: be careful; one day, the kid will be big enough to take YOU out. Sue me, you’re evil.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 2015
Ditto Evil Brain…even though I’m SURE he’s up to something…;)
It’s been over a week since this last update. Is the comic on hiatus?
She is probably going to slug the next person to tell her a horrible delivery story.
