Advertisements As a mom, I had a hard time watching these scenes because I understand how Betty felt at the initial moment she realized her sandwich was gone. She felt slighted...like Bobby didn't love her. And I've felt like that when my kids have done thoughtless things while they were busy being kids. Where the hatred of Betty comes in is that she then holds such a grudge against her kids. As soon as Bobby started saying he was sorry is when a good mom would snap out of it and realize that her kid was just being a kid. And certainly, most moms wouldn't still be acting the martyr at dinnertime. I actually find this storyline interesting. We already know Betty was a terrible mom to Sally. We could have chalked it up as just a mother-daughter dynamic. Now the pattern is continuing with her son. It showcases that Betty is such a self-centered, immature woman.
