spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the October 28 episode
We've been hearing the verb 'bin' a lot lately as a synonym for 'dump' or 'get rid of'. It's used mainly in connection with Steve and Michelle and the question usually is: Will Steve 'bin' Michelle - and, if so, when? Of course, in the Wonderful World of Steverino, this action is necessary so he can boink Becky on a full time (instead of part-time) basis. But the problem is Steve can't or won't take that big step, he won't 'bin' Michelle. It's a problem and we know that Stevie-boy is on the horns of a dilemma (very horny, actually - ed) because of the wide variety of facial gymnastics which his rubbery, expressive face is displaying on a regular basis.
Why all the hesitation on Stevo's part?
Well, of course, there's the spineless factor, especially when it comes to women. Then there's the problem of Michelle getting more likeable. This is a recent phenomenon. Just when Steve is working himself up to do some actual 'bin-ing', she turns around and becomes all nice and lovable. She's drinking red wine, looking sexy, listening to UB40, doing the Steve 'samba' - (twice in one night thank you very much), making surprise dinner plans and taking Amy to school. What's not to like?
As for Stevie Blunder, well Operation Bad Boyfriend has been a total bust. The only result so far has been the anger and disappointment of Becky who tells him: "Don’t touch me, don’t speak to me! Just crawl away and die."
Not much room for nuance there. Looks like Steve's grand plan to break up with Michelle and be with Becky belongs in the.. well.. bin.
