Sunday Canadian Corrie Comments, August 12
Steve and Lloyd made friends again, became roommates and merged their businesses anyway. I hope Steve keeps up the lady drivers, though, that's a good selling point. Tracy figured all was well again and she could be friends with Steve. Not so. She doesn't get it does she? How many knock backs can you take before you do? Steve's next scheme is to pay Beth and Tracy to get out of the house so Kevin can move in the next day, even before contracts are exchanged and there's a formal closing. Kevin is being a bit unreasonable wanting the tennants out in 24 hours. Surely that's illegal? I'm sure there is a tennant's board or something Tracy could go to and he mentioned the Citizen's Advice Bureau but he decided to bribe them out instead and money talks. I repeat YET again, surely her name is on the deed and she's got a say in this all? WHY are we always treated like fools when it comes to stuff like that? Real Estate transactions always seem to happen in LaLa land on Corrie.
Beth is more than willing to take the money and run and found a place to live but Tracy's having trouble so Emily offers her a room, no matter that Ken did try his best to divert Emily from asking. And again in a house that only has two bedrooms. They must have Tardis qualities. You know, Beth and Tracy seem to have made friends of a sort. Unusual for Tracy, innit? Now I'm not Tracy's biggest fan nor Norris's but having Tracy winding up Norris all the time, that could actually be amusing!
Then Nick's party did far better, with a clown and a great cake. His present made Peter feel pretty inadequate too. Not sure an 8 or 9 year old should really have a laptop but there you go. Simon wanted both Peter and Nick to go to Sports day and the rivalry ramped up in a burlap sack. Of course Nick won, he's a runner while Peter smokes and doesn't exercise at all. It was inevitable. Don't think Nick doesn't know exactly what he's doing, too, I'm sure he loves rubbing Peter's nose in it all the time.
Peter went beserk over the laptop and Nick most certainly provoked him further into a fight in front of Simon and he had the nerve to blame Nick and Leanne. She was right, Peter is the only one to blame. Leanne is now planning to move away and take Simon with her. You know, she was doing the same thing that Peter was doing to her, refusing to let him see Simon because of his routine.
Peter then went to Ken and as usual, turned it around on Ken's parenting skills, especially when Ken thought it might not be such a bad thing for Simon to be gone for awhile. Peter's drinking was the last straw for Carla and she was out of there. He continued on blaming her the next day, accusing her of chasing him. She did, of course but he certainly is no stranger to temptation, what with his father's genes. He pushed her away well and proper.
When she left, he figured he could try to get Leanne back. She wasn't having any of that.
I bet everyone's heart broke a little when Simon accused Peter of being drunk and later in the week, felt he had to check his father's breath for booze. Poor kid shouldn't have to be so wise at his age.
I still think Nick is going to get his heart broken by Leanne even if it's not over Peter. Gail still doesn't like Leanne any more than she ever did, does she? And Nick's right, Gail's love life has nearly always been a disaster. Glad to see Nick admitted he was the one that let Leanne down when they were married.
Eva needs to grow up, too. Why shouldn't Stella give Simon a birthday card or go to his party? She's his de-facto grandma after all. It might seem like Stella keeps taking Leanne's side over Eva but you can't help when one of your kids needs you more. Eva just wants attention like a four year old. She may get some now that Rob has his eye on her. He's a massive flirt and she's enjoying it.
It's very hard for Sean to see Marcus around but yet, even so, he can't help not having a go at him when he sees him. They are promising not to flaunt new boyfriends but Marcus made arrangements to meet Aiden in the pub and he knows very well what Sean thinks of him, even if Aid isn't a boyfriend. It was kind of insensitive of Marcus.
Gary really was chuffed about the baby. I'm sure there are medical concerns and Izzy is worried they can't afford it. They did see the doctor straight away to cover all the bases but it looks like it should be ok, with care. Even though Izzy didn't want to tell anyone yet, especially his dad, Gary was too excited and burst out with the news in front of the whole family. Owen went deadly quiet when he found out, when I thought he'd blow his stack. It was probably a worse reaction than losing his temper though. It's understandable that he'd be worried for her but surely the doctor's words would reassure him. When he finally did speak his mind, it wasn't pretty. It's not going to be easy, of course, and she'll have challenges as a mum but there's no reason she can't do it. But this is going to give Gary a good reason to get over protective again.
Lloyd only had three cabs? He bought the Primo cab company, surely it had more than that? Three cabs isn't really enough of a threat to a long established business like Streetcars that most definitely has more than 3 cars. Oh, but after he said he couldn't run a company with no cabs, he drove off in one to the Sports Day.
Brian was espousing stretching before exercise while shoving a cupcake down his gob. I don't think serving trays of alcoholic jello shots is entirely appropriate at a kids' party where a child could mistake it for plain jello. Marcus made a lovely meal for Kirk for the inconvenience of sharing the flat.
I think i like Rob but it's early days yet. And he needs a better haircut. And yes, he would have known Michelle because they all would have known each other years back, Carla's family and the Connors. Michelle had to fill in Rob on what happened to Carla in the last year. I wonder if he already knew about Tony before that? What do you think of Rob? He seems to have taken business courses in the nick and tried to bluff the client. He took the wrong strategy. It didn't go well and Carla was furious. Rob had to back track and lured her to the pub later and at least he managed to re-bluff her into a contract. Result!
