    Only watched the first one so far, but I do intend to watch the other two as well!

    With that wig thing... how the heck can Ben's father pass that off as 'teasing'? There's teasing, and then there's bullying and abuse - and that clearly crosses the line...

    Thanks for sharing Smile .

    I can't wait to hear your take on the other two! In fact, I'm interested in getting your A**hole scores on them all.

    Well, here are my scores for the second one:

    #1 - Yeah, 2/5 for OP seems fair to me. Only 2/5 because she didn't harm anybody (or put anybody at risk of harm) - but she was still expecting too much.

    #2 - Again, 2.5/5 for the wife seems fair to me. I do think that they should consider doing *something* to 'even the score' for the daughter, but that's not it.

    #3 - I'll give the husband's mother 2/5 buttholes for bringing the subject up and expressing disappointment about it - but no more than that because she probably just didn't know better. The husband, on the other hand, absolutely *should* know better. He should clearly have had her back - and, he very much did not. I'll give him 4/5 buttholes: he sound like one of those 'brutally honest' people who cares more about the brutality than the honesty.

    #4 -Her boyfriend just sounds like a freeloader... 3/5 is exactly what I would've given him. As for OP, the only thing I can *maybe* fault her for is allowing this to go on for 7 months: at some point, she should have put her foot down and said "Make a proper effort to become a streamer, or else!". But without knowing whether or not she did that, I'm not going to give her a butthole score.

    #5 - Yeah... the narrator predicted people would disagree with him, and that's what I'm going to do Razz . I'd give OP 0/5 buttholes here, probably because I'm viewing the situation from a logical perspective and not an emotional perspective. From my point of view, OP is just trying to do them a favour - and "hating landlords in general" doesn't excuse Zoey's boyfriend's behaviour, because this is clearly an edge case where most of his reasons for hating landlords would not apply. I can certainly understand why he wouldn't want to shift the power dynamic (in his situation, I'm not sure that I would have accepted OP's offer), but he shouldn't have overreacted like that (and some of the things he said weren't even true: OP can't "take away his apartment" when it was never his to begin with!). So, I'll give Zoey's boyfriend 2 out of 5 buttholes here.

    Thanks for sharing Smile !

    I've watched the third one now - and, here are my scores:

    1) Yeah, 1.5 buttholes for the brother makes sense... if he didn't want to hear about that, he shouldn't have brought up the subject!

    2) Again, 2.5 buttholes for the husband seems fair... just comes off as entitled. It's very clear that it's his and his friend's trip, and his wife is very much an afterthought... if he's going to include her, then he should make a *proper* effort to do so.

    3) Hmmm... this is a tricky one. In theory, I feel like she *should* have some degree of responsibility for her siblings (since, in the absence of her parents, she's the only adult left) - but in practice, it's obviously near-impossible for her to do that. Nevertheless, I feel like I have to give her 0.5 out of 5 buttholes for this (I can't give her a straight 0 out of 5 when there's something she theoretically *could* have done for her siblings - but I also can't go above 0.5 because, frankly, that would've been a heroic move which would've been beyond most people - myself included). The siblings, of course, get an easy 0 out of 5: they certainly did nothing wrong, and just ended up in a dreadful situation through no fault of their own (and their anger towards OP is understandable and, dare I say it, kinda justified). As for the parents... they certainly deserve a butthole score, but without knowing what they did to end up in jail, I'd need more info before I could give out a meaningful score.

    4) Honestly, this is another of those where I disagree with the narrator. I think trust is *the* key factor in any relationship, and him putting misleading stuff like that in his dating profile is a great way to ruin that right off the bat. Perhaps OP wasn't exactly diplomatic about the way in which she approached the situation, but I do think what he did was more seriously wrong than the narrator was suggesting, simply because it's going to create trust issues right from the get-go. So, I'll only give 1 out of 5 buttholes to the OP - but 2 out of 5 to her date.

    5) Yeah, agreed with the narrator this time... it sounds like the OP is the one who needs to find another job, and 2 out of 5 buttholes is fair for him.

    6) Yeah, definitely not the OP's fault here, so an easy 0 out of 5. I'm slightly more sympathetic to the sister, because of the difficulty she clearly has with raising those two kids, so I'll only give her 2 out of 5 buttholes. However, I am *not* sympathetic to the mother, who created this mess by inviting the sister on the vacation in the first place (which IMO, she had absolutely no right to do, as she wasn't the one who saved up and paid for it). So, in a reversal of OP's scores, I'll give the mother 3 out of 5 buttholes.
