Why can’t you just be Joe Darger?
Howdy, Gasmii! Thanks so much for all your great comments on the minicap. I’m so glad I’m not the only one obsessed with this show!
Let’s start by catching up with the first two episodes. In the season premiere, the Browns focused on trying to pre-qualify for four new (as yet unbuilt) homes. I haven’t bought a house myself, but from what I understand this pre-qualification does not mean the mortgage is guaranteed. So the fact that their kids were less than enthusiastic when Kody told them the exciting news? Smarter than their parents. At least with math.
Just how can people who collectively have multiple bankruptcies and other financial issues qualify at all? If they can pre-qualify for those big honking homes, I should be able to pre-qualify for a mansion in Bel Air.
As usual, we had all sorts of manufactured drama in this ep: Robyn has had 3 last names! Yes, maiden, first marriage, and Brown. I don’t sense a criminal conspiracy there. Christine forgot to pay a bill for a utility! OMG that 60 bucks will completely jeopardize her ability to get “approved”! Oy freaking vey.
And what’s up with Credit Repair Guy? I used to work for a so-called credit repair place some years ago – for about 2 weeks, until I realized their scam. What they did was to challenge pretty much everything on a client’s credit report. That makes credit reporting agencies temporarily remove the items while they investigate whether they are genuine. In that tiny window of time, you have the client apply for the loan, and it appears they have a squeaky-clean report. Is that how they finessed Robin’s application? If so, not terribly honest. Or legal.
Yeah, a guy in a bowling shirt is who I want handling my finances.
So everyone got “pre-approved”. And they went out to look at the bare dirt that will be their homes. Or not . . .
In the second ep, we had Logan’s graduation. Apparently every one of his parents has forgotten their last name is Brown, not Zolnierowicz. Cause Janelle, Logan’s mother, didn’t hear his name being called. Really? When they got to “B”, you didn’t know “Brown” would be coming up? Plus, Robin missed the graduation since she could not find the biggest building on the campus. Even though they have computers, no one in the family looked up a map, or sent directions to anyone or had any kind of, oh, plan to travel to/from the event. Ah, Browns. Don’t ever change.
Since you missed it, Janelle, here’s your son graduating.
There was also a parent-teacher conference (or something set up to look like one) in which Kody tried to shock the teachers. Honey, they know who you are. They are not surprised you’re polygamous. They totally don’t care.
