We watch It’s a Wonderful Life every Christmas season.
Hubby watches because he thinks it sentimental and sweet.
I watch it because it is so messed up and twisted and can’t believe I am only one who seems to realize it.
I am going to assume you have seen the film and began my rant.
Yes, life would suck if George hadn’t been born but what if George had made a few different decisions
His brother would be alive because he would be there to save him still it happened when they were young.
The pharmacist wouldn’t have killed off some poor family in his drunken haze because George was still at home he hasn’t gone any where yet, no worries.
So let move on to George first dumb arse attack
He stays to work the family business to send his brother to college instead.
Ok that’s cool.
He could have turned it around if he had any sense and made enough money so they wouldn’t have to worry about Evil Rich Mr. Potter.
He could have fired his dumb stupid Uncle Billie or put him on phones rather than handling cash.
On to George and his next escape gone awry
Little brother gets married and his new wife doesn’t want to him to work in Bedford Falls
That’s your problem little man
No one told him to marry the shrew anyway
Heck they didn’t even know her and besides that she knew what she was signing up for.
George should have said I am out of here.
Ok so let’s say he doesn’t
There is a run on the bank and his new wife gives their honey moon money away.
First off if George was any good he would already have cash equity built up in bank
Heck he was there what five years?
Not only does his new wife give away all their money she happens to save enough back to buy some crappy run down home and informs him on their first night together that she always wished they would be trapped there forever.
So what does George get out of living this life of self sacrifice?
What is his reward?
He doesn’t have to go to jail for something he didn’t do!
What a F'd up life.
George you should have grown a pair.
