I understand that Megan is mourning and is using alcohol to "medicate" herself. Ryan is not going through any emotional turmoil other than having to grow up. Has he ever once spoken about his dad? Apparently, Tamra was the sole provider, at least according to her, and Simon saw all the sacrifices she must've made for him. For him to grow up and treat her like a bank is disgusting. Does he really believe that the tattoo is enough to pay her back? He is completely taking advantage of her position, being able to help him. This situation is not about Simon and Ryan 'duking it out' for her. It's about Ryan wanting to be a man. What does he do for her on her birthday or mother's day? He said he got the tattoo on mother's day. Isn't that a little weird that he did something on himself? Why didn't he spend the money on something nice for her?
The whole sense of entitlement is disgusting and Simon has his head on his shoulders when it comes to Ryan.
