    16 Times The Gilmore Girls Were Actually Kind Of Awful

    I love them, but they're also terrible.

    1. Every time Lorelai acted like Emily asking for her and Rory's time on Friday evenings in exchange for thousands of dollars for Rory's tuition was completely unreasonable.

    2. Every time Lorelai rolled her eyes at Friday night dinner and acted like she alone was burdened with parents who asked probing questions at dinner, and because of this they were the worst.

    3. When Rory had sex with a married man and refused to admit that it was a really bad thing to do.

    4. When Rory then ran away to travel around Europe with her grandmother even though she knew it would upset her mother, all because Lorelai had the gall to point out that sleeping with someone else's husband is not cool.

    5. Every time Rory acted like she was a plain and simple country bumpkin next to Logan, when in fact she was, like, 5% less rich.

    6. When Lorelai publicly humiliated her mother by comparing her to a bloody dictator in a magazine interview.

    7. When Lorelai acted like her parents wanting to buy a house for her and Luke to live in was the worst thing they could have done.

    8. Every time Lorelai put Rory in a position in which she had to choose between her and her grandparents.

    9. Every time Lorelai didn't pay Luke for whatever coffee or food she had at the café.

    10. When Lorelai decided to run away instead of telling someone she didn't want to marry them, like an adult.

    11. The time Lorelai ran away from home because she didn't like her parents, regardless of the wellbeing of her newborn.

    12. Every time Lorelai treated Sooki as a handmaiden.

    13. Every time the Gilmore girls make fat jokes, despite being very vocal about their diet of pure junk.

    14. The time Rory acts like Emily did The Worst Thing Ever when she snuck into her dorm and redecorated the whole place as a well-intentioned surprise.

    15. When Rory had a totally disproportionate reaction to Mitchum saying that he personally didn't think she was good enough to be a journalist.

    16. When Rory stole a boat and was shocked that she would be punished for stealing a boat.
