Duggars by the Dozen - General Discussion Part 15


Recommended Posts

I can't believe this nearly 30 year old lady has been a live in teacher for the Duggars for over a year. I really hope they don't make her sleep int he girls room, because that would be beyond depressing. 

What the fuck does J'chelle do all day? Seriously? Being available for JB?

JFC! Why is sibling molestation ok with these people but adultery is where they draw the line? THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE YOU DUGGARS.

I'm going away for Thanksgiving. Limited access to the internet,and family which doesn't understand my Duggar fascination.  They will probably expect me to socialize. What am I going to do for the next week without my FJ fix? :aaarggh:

Your family will expect you to SOCIALIZE?!!! :56247904e3b6a_ConanONoes::pb_surprised::ETONNER:

You poor thing! :ferret: :my_heart:

I read Becky's response to Tabitha on the Paines site and couldn't believe my eyes.  I even went back TWICE to check the date ... thinking it had to have been written before all of Josh's "bad behaviors"   :my_cry:   were revealed.  But no, it was written this month.  I do hope it was a tabloid reporter trying to suck up, otherwise, its a sad, sad situation. 

And yes ... John David and some of the other kids look just like Me-chelle's dad.

I really hope Tabitha Paine is getting paid a decent amount of money (and not just bed & board plus a little pocket money). Does the US have a minimum wage?

It's $7.50/hour until January 1, when it will go up to $8/hr. But I SEVERELY doubt the Duggars pay her.

I would assume she would get a monthly stipend, but the Duggars may deal with the parents on payment rather directly with her. That whole leadership thing. 

Anywho, that annual march for life is right around the corner. Now due to Josh thing, do you think they will be invited to attend or do you think they will show up anyway?

Ugh she probably gets the added joy of sharing a bed with an under 10 kid. Who wouldn't want blessings like that.

Apparently some members still need help with the quote boxes...

 

Why on earth would anyone believe that JB would pay a real salary to Tabitha to homeschool his children.  Come on!  You all know JB, right?  If he is paying her anything at all it is so minimal as to be meaningless-- pocket change; enough for a coffee and a lipstick.  No doubt he could open his home to lots of young fundie SAHDs who would be thrilled to live with the Duggars without pay.  Don't forget that the Duggars live like royalty compared to most Quiverfuls.  The TTH has 9 bathrooms.  Most of these familys with 10 or more kids are probably making do with 1 or 2 bathrooms and living on rice N' gravy.

She probably sleeps in Jill's or Jessa's old bed. I can't imagine JB&M letting her get a room to herself. I know homeschooling  your children doesn't necessarily mean you will be their teacher, but I have a feeling Tabitha doesn't have any certifications.... hopefully she knows more than bible verses and bankruptcy laws. 

 

Does anyone find it a little odd that Tabitha seems content with the possibility of never marrying? It wouldn't be weird for a secular person to never marry because they can still date and have serious relationships. If a fundie never marries, they can't kiss, hold hands, cuddle, have sex, etc. I know some people are asexual and don't really crave those things (even though I know some asexuals who still date and kiss but won't sleep with their bf/gfs...I guess its a spectrum?). I wonder if  Jana plans on taking the Tabitha/Sarah Maxwell road and will stay forever single. Maybe they can all move in together, along with Grandma Mary. It'll be a fundie version of the Golden Girls.

Tabitha had a smiley smile after her sentence about being single for the rest of her life. That may be how she prefers to live. I'm thinking she is in girls' room, so she can be chaperoned at all times. She is under JB's "protection" now, isn't she?

A lot of these older fund SAHDs remind me of women like my Aunt Margaret, born shortly before the turn of the 20th century, so going back  more than 100 years. Irish Catholic, poor, lived in tenements in NYC, watched their mothers beaten down and probably die early taking care of so many kids, and that's your future--unless you joined the convent. Then you could have an education, a career (albeit teaching or nursing, usually), live in a clean, quiet place, get a modicum of respect. Not having an asshole husband probably seems a small price to pay.

JB and Michelle talk constantly about their kids and pretend via the show, that they spend time with them, awkwardly I might add. Now that they have no show, no speaking engagements (or at least not many), less kids, and more adults; they find a "tutor!" What the absolute hell? Seriously? Are you telling me that they cannot get off their own behinds and teach their kids. Are they too busy trying to get into the fortress that satan built in Josh's heart? :dontgetit:

Tabitha Paine please run and run fast. Being the "tutor" to the Duggar family will get you nothing good. You may end up married to a Duggar. Not saying that all Duggars are bad but holy shit those two as your in-laws...run and don't look back!

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
