Why Satisfying Is Not Often Smart|
Is it weird that part of my reaction was that, given the waste, clearly the father suffers from the same entitled upbringing as the daughter? I mean, I had assumed he had bought the computer for her, and if it had been me and I had acted up enough to make my parents do such a thing (and my parents are more reasonable so I would have had to be pretty bad), they probably would have just given my computer to someone less well off than me who would appreciate it better, especially since they sank the money in it anyway. He basically said, "I sank money into your computer, and I have no value in it except to wave it over your head."
Nope. Don't think it's weird at all.
It is a little weird. (his reaction, not yours.)
But its simple-he was pissed, he wanted to break something.
And maybe, even if it was on an unconscious level, maybe he wanted to scare her.
