Exactly! He refused to do his job! How on earth is he innocent?!Entriol said:I'm assuming the people who hate this episode are also the people who hate Jellyfishing and Club Spongebob. "Squid abuse" only applies to episodes where Squidward didn't do anything wrong or wasn't an unlikeable jerk.
Here's why I get mad: Squidward's a good character, but he's not a flawless octopus. He's a narcisstic jerk pre-movie, he's arrogant, he's rude, and he's twisted. Does that make me love him any less? No, that's why I come to love him.President Squidward said:Here's a tip:
Never mention about how Squidward didn't deserve something in their opinion, people always get mad and make it a big deal. ;)
lol I already knew thatE.V.I.L said:Believe it or not, you can be a fan of a chracter without blindly praising everything they do because guess what? EVERY CHARACTER HAS FLAWS. NO HUMAN OR CHARACTER IS PERFECT. None!
Guess what? HIS HOTEL EXPLODED AND HE LOST REVENUE. This is the moral of the episode: to not treat your employees like jerks OR YOUR COMPANY WILL FAIL. Period. There's no if's, and's, or but's to that. Literally no one didn't suffer karma.President Squidward said:lol I already knew that
And while Squidward was a jerk to the customers and didn't do his job good, you gotta admit Krabs was acting a little jerky too.
Well, okay then. Chill with the caps there. :PE.V.I.L said:Guess what? HIS HOTEL EXPLODED AND HE LOST REVENUE. This is the moral of the episode: to not treat your employees like jerks OR YOUR COMPANY WILL FAIL. Period. There's no if's, and's, or but's to that. Literally no one didn't suffer karma.
Besides, this is a freaking cartoon about SpongeBob in a pineapple. The laws of morality don't have to be so strict. I can understand APFG where SpongeBob is an oblivious idiot, but this? They were all in character.
The difference is in the former episodes, Squidward was being a complete jerk except for maybe Jellyfishing (and even then, he shouldn't have been so annoying about not Jellyfishing) This has always been a part of Squidward's character and while most post-movie episodes take it too far, some episodes like Professor Squidward and now this apparently are considered Squid ABuse when they're FAR FROM IT.Popeye Q. Krabs said:Once again, anything that happens to Squidward that's actually funny I don't consider Squid "abuse" at all. When it's poorly written, unfunny and terribly executed like in "Boating Buddies", then you're free to call that whatever you want. Squid torture, Squid abuse, whatever. I don't know why this is suddenly becoming a full blown debate again. There's a huge difference between episodes like "Club SpongeBob", "Jellyfishing", "The Lost Mattress" and something like "Choir Boys" period and I can't imagine why anyone would confuse that. I guess by that kind of logic, we have to now feel sorry about the Coyote getting hurt in pretty much every Warner Bros. cartoon he was in and I've always found those cartoons to be funny.
Because some members what to make a big deal out of it when someone mentions Squidward. I know, it's annoying when this happens.Popeye Q. Krabs said:I don't know why this is suddenly becoming a full blown debate again.
They're meant to induce a feeling of "OMFG HOW DID YOU NOT NOTICE THAT" :PPresident Squidward said:Well, okay then. Chill with the caps there. :P
