Why is there a display of rolls of toilet paper in buckets?  Who does that? Why would anyone do that?

I have the terrible feeling that somebody sells that bucket contraption for that purpose....Anybody else think that? I'd like to hear that this is just too ridiculous...

I don't think people are stupid for donating meat to a family who looks emaciated. I think it's very kind of them. 

I'm surprised Jill is still breastfeeding Janessa. Janessa is going to be two years old in a little over a week.  I know there are women who nurse until puberty, but it surprises me from Jill.

I have a toilet paper rack thingy to save counter and shelf space in my small bathroom.  No chairs, though.

Normally, I would agree. However, David is fat and Jill is a normal weight; only the kids are rail thin. That's suspicious. I doubt the generous gift will change the situation one bit.

If you will excuse me, I have to go re-examine all of my life choices. That's going to take awhile.

That's fine. 

It's the "whole pile of rolls in separate buckets that are probably hard to extract from the damn buckets and require an additional piece of furniture in an already overcrowded room to hold them" aspect that I marvel at.  😎

Especially when there's a houseful of kids who have to navigate the contraption.

During this time of our "quarantine"??????? Bitch has been proudly showing off all the mingling she and the kids have been doing. The "quarantine" line must have been her grift to get the farmer to give her the meat. 

They already knew the Dingus family. They were the ones who went bowling with Timbits when he was home during finals week about a month ago.

I don't think it's something to lie about. I guess it could be a lie, but it's not something I would lie about. Something people may think it makes you a better mother to breastfeed for an extended period, but a lot of people don't care and at some point it's a little odd although somewhat normal these days.  

It surprises, because it seems out of character for Jill. I guess it's a humble brag. Jill seems to me to be the kind of woman who cuts breast-feeding short so she can have the next blessing. Maybe she's got a premonition Janessa is the last baby.

So this begs the question: how many fridges and freezers does she have?

 

First, I don't think Jill and David even know the meaning of quarantine, and second, the photos of double-chin Jill and her bowling-ball-on-legs chubby hubby grocery shopping certainly don't look like they are in a store with a shortage of "meat supplies." Jill just wanted free food, and she managed to find someone who would give it to her. She's the Grifting Goddess, and I'll give her that. She would probably talk a homeless person out his last sandwich to make sure David had his late-night snack.

I believe her; I just think the endless obsession with "purity" is creepy and overdone. I was homeschooled and was very sheltered (and not just a virgin, but had never even been near a guy on my own) until college. Jill's parents appeared to be quite strict and her upbringing was likely the same.

If I’m honest, I hide in bathroom sometimes!  Just a minute or two because my kids leave me alone when I’m in there. Only for a few minutes, but during this self-quarantine it’s a lovely few minutes. However, I don’t have a chair across from toilet! And I’m not a narcissist like Jill!

I guess technically I kissed a guy other than my husband on my wedding day. Then he tried to eat my bouquet, and no, that’s not a euphemism for something. It was my 9-month-old nephew and I was so tired of my husband and I being the center of attention that I started carrying him around so everyone would pay attention to him instead. And kiss him on top of his fuzzy little head, of course. So I suppose my marriage is doomed?

"Prayer is not preparation for the work, it is the work..."

First, I must not be Godly enough because I don't even understand what this is supposed to mean.

Second, if this is an example of Nathan's conversation topics, I now feel even worse for Nurie.  Yawnnnnnn.

Jill is so sure that everyone else is going to hell and she is going to heaven.  Is this really being a good Christian?  Would any truly good Christian ever be so confidently sure?  Isn't there always room to be a better person?  I also love her arrogance that she has the ability to save others.  Does she think she IS God?

I hope she reads the forums here.  I'm going to give her a J-Rod equivalent to a hard kick in the balls:  Jill....you are not a good Christian.....

I think everyone is missing the point of the chair in the bathroom. Jill's got to park her ass in there to make sure David doesn't get tempted to pay attention to any particular body part while he's in there.

I believe it was coined by Miss Allie on The Amazing Race Forum.  She was commenting on how annoying it was to have racers praying for God to let them win the various competitions and how the winners often thanked God for giving them the victory.  Her general sentiment was 'God does not care if you do a meaningless task faster than anyone else nor is he busy fixing it so you win a million bucks.  God is in the tub, he does not care'.  That's a paraphrase, but that's the gist of it.

catching up On this thread has reminded me of one of my favorite TWoP phrases of all times: “God is in the tub”. 

When my sister's kids were young (like 5-9, not toddlers), she had a 20 minute rule on the bathroom.  If she went in there, they had to wait at least 20 minutes before knocking unless someone was bleeding or there was a bone sticking out.  She would take a magazine, toss some Calgon in the tub and take a break a couple times a week.

As for Jill, she has a great big bedroom with many superfluous chairs; if she wants to nurse privately or read the Bible, why wouldn't she go there?  Unlike her poor kids who are crowded together in their rooms like refugees at Ellis Island, she shares her bedroom with only one person.  A person who supposedly works more than full time printing Bible tracts and surely doesn't have time to be napping in her bedroom.  Why would she want to conduct non-bathroom activities in the bathroom?

I thought Miss Allie was a petty, power-mad mod, but that is funny.

I also think Jill could really relate to this quote from Pam on The Office: "I feel God in this Chili's tonight."
