Guitars1964 Posted June 15, 2013 Posted June 15, 2013 I tend to feel like penny gets a lot of stick on this forum sometimes, so I like to, when I can, try and defend her actions. I think I have a tendency to see the good in people before the bad and that could be why I am always in her corner. I have always seen her as someone who doesn't think before she acts, she just lives on her gut and acts spontaneously, usually to her detriment. Like when she jumped at the chance to go out with david under hill, or the thing we were discussing earlier with Stuart. I don't think she has ever done something intentionally to hurt leonard. I think she does these things and then realises later on how that must of made him feel. I suppose the raj thing would be a good example of that too, but I still find it hard to defend her on that one. In my opinion sleeping, or intending to sleep with a close friend of your ex isn't such a bad thing, they were consenting adults after all. But I feel like due to the history between l/p, makes it much worse. Yet I have never thought any less of her because of it, and i dont worry about it ever happening again. I still feel like she didn't mean any harm in doing it, and she was drunk! I think we have all done stupid stuff when drunk! Oh and please excuse any spelling mistakes or anything in this, I am at work right now hehe Well, I've posted my criticisms of Penny, for sure. But I suspect many of us that have done that are big supporters of Penny, which is why some of her actions drive us nuts. And, not for nothin', but being drunk doesn't get anyone a free pass in behavior. Especially if one has a history of over-drinking - gotta know what may happen when the bottle is drained. And, before I get too serious on Penny, I shall again remind myself that the poor girl is held hostage by TBBT writers - now that DOES get her a free pass in behavior sometimes! ;>) Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
