Quote jilltidwell: I'm sick&tired of hearing Adam saying that they had everything handed to them. He don't seem to understand that just b/c they were born into money doesn't mean that they had an easy life. I'm sick of him thinking that he is entitled just b/c he feels like he was cheated. Nick&Vikki don't deserve to be treated the way he has treated them. Adam had been causing troubled since the day he came to GC. The 1st thing he did was hit on Phyliss. He didn't know what the word no meant. Then, when he did come to work at NE, he felt it was up to him to change without telling anybody. Nevermind the fact that he went behind Vikki's back concerning business. He felt that just b/c he was Victor's son, he could do anything he wanted. Who does he think he is to fire Neil&Vikki? They know a whole lot more about Newman thgan he does. He has only been there 6 months? He shouldn't have had the power to fire anybody. I'll be glad when Victor kicks his butt. He will definitely deserve it.
ITA. Growing up with money means nothing in terms of happiness. Adam had a loving stable home life, unlike Vicky and Nick. Vicky and Nick watched their parents flounder in various states of turmoil and had to put up with their constant mate switching, including Hope, and their father's periodic abuse. If anyone is a victim of their childhood, it is them.
Adam was positively salivating at the thought of money and power. I have never seen the other two behave that way. It is a shame Adam learned nothing from Hope or Victor.
He made some very big mistakes and now he will have to suffer the consequences. How he choses to move forward will tell us everything we need to know about his character.
