So I've been playing the Sims 2 for a long time. And I've tried most things out, done things just to see what would happen. But I'm think I'm pretty good at the actual traditional gameplay business. Everyone learns skills, early death is unheard of, tops of careers are reached. So this is the first time this has ever happened to me except for one time when I did it purposely to seed the adoption pool.
The Social Worker took all my sims' children.
Here you get a view of blatant lack of decorating I do for my BACC sims. But here's the Social Worker serving Marie Terwilliger with the news her kids are being taken. Like me, Marie totally did not deserve this, and will totally put down her mac and cheese to cry about this in a minute.
This is Milton. He's fine, and totally does not need to be rehomed.
Sure, he's cleaning rotten mac and cheese off the floor, but really, he's fine, all in the green and there's more non-rotten food in the fridge for him. See, his mom just got home a little bit ago, and all 4 kids (one child, three toddlers) have been being cared for by a sim I moved in who is the husband's secret pregnant boyfriend who was very tired. So things were a little stressed, but I was confident they would turn around with Marie coming home from work.
This is Alison. She's totally fine and just chilling in her crib. Further evidence everything is peachy.
Jolene is crying about her dirty diaper, but otherwise fine. No one's been able to change her for a while though. Why? That's a good question, and that brings me to...
Jan Tellerman. She came home with Marie from work. Marie headed straight for Jenny who needed to be fed and changed, but Jan got there first. And stood with her in front of Jolene's crib. Both Marie and the secret boyfriend tried everything. They tried interacting with Jan Tellerman to get her to put Jenny down. They tried to change Jenny but couldn't get Jan to give her up. They tried telling Jan to leave. Nothing worked. She just continued stupidly holding her until her needs continued to drop and the social worker came.
I hate you Jan Tellerman. We are officially enemies. I was really looking forward to seeing these weird looking children grow up, and they all had the recessive hair genes that are so rare in my BACC. Now I have to wait to find homes for them, and they will probably be split up. Something horrible will happen to you Jan Tellerman. I just need to decide what.
The Drake Equation
- I'll get you Jan Tellerman!
