    I really like Bernice and the building she arrived with. I usually send her on her 6hr task. I'm sure she'll eventually get a four hr task, or something.

    Bernice being included in TO, gives me hope for a lot of other characters to appear.

    Her eight hour task pays more, and hibberts eight hour task isnt visible. Dont really see what the problem is.

    I like her and the tasks she has. It's just a pity that there are those gaps that need filling in her task list. I'm hoping as more buildings are added then she may well be used more. I still think her 'falling off the wagon' is one of the great outdoor tasks.

    The poll is akin to "have you stopped beating your wife?" LOL I don't mind her at all.

    I've been playing since January of this year and aside from the Easter event, I don't think I've complained about anything. Every time I got to her, I was just annoyed to have to send her on an 8-hour joint task that tied up a character I'd rather send on 4 hour tasks twice. I wish I could send her on her 6 hour and a 2 hour, that would work but she doesn't have a Gilded Truffle task like her husband does. I *thought* she didn't have a permanent 4-hour, but as another user pointed out she can pick on Marge, which works money and timewise for me.

    Outdoor tasks (or lack thereof) and male vs. female population balance don't really bother me. The building is nice, it goes next to my shoreline quite well. I *do* like that she can take advantage of Banana Dictatorship.

    .. but then on top of that her 8 hour option ties up Dr. Hibbert.

    4 or 8 hour tasks work best for my schedule, 12's not so much.

    So why don't you just use her 8 hour one? Store Dr. Hibbert's shop (he'll be stored), then Bernice will come first in the pecking order when using the task assigner. She'll grab him and you'll have 2 less taps to do.

    Thanks, but I did this months ago. I'd rather get the higher payout for 2x 4 hour tasks from Dr. Hibbert.
    I don't like that she has 2 joint tasks (4-hour "tease Marge" and the 8-hour one with Dr. Hibbert). I do like the 8-hour one, but could do without the joint task with Marge.

    Completely forgot about her 4 hour joint! For some reason I thought it was only related to her quest line, but I guess I didn't scroll long enough. Gonna reshuffle Marge/Moe now.

    You can simply ignore her, pretend it's a NPC, or keep sending her on 24 hour task.

    This is what I usually do for Stampy. He's kind of just a walking decoration.
    FYI, she's the only African American woman in the game. So take it easy....

    Woah, what? I'm complaining about her task times/joint tasks.

    I still don't understand the hate from the OP. Just because of her lack of a couple of tasks?

    I'd feel the same way about Ralph Wiggum, Number One or Mindy if they tied up another character for 8 hour tasks and they have no 4 hour.

    I really hate this character, I was ok with her at first but now as time goes on I just hate having her as a part of my Springfield. It's one thing to have a character without a 4 hour task but then on top of that her 8 hour option ties up Dr. Hibbert. She doesn't even have a 2 hour Dine at the Truffle option!

    4 or 8 hour tasks work best for my schedule, 12's not so much.

    Especially if one purchased the Number 2 for Hibbert making him a premium paying character. Same reason I don't send Lisa or Homer KL (unless needed for a quest), have skins that pay premium. Not about to loose premium pay out by doing stuff that pays less.

    Also Marge now has a premium skin, so again the same issue of getting paid less to use a premium character with a none premium character. She needs her own 4 hour task.

    Bumble Bee Man is the worst character ever. I would be willing to pay donuts to give him away.

    I disagree. She's a fremium woman with great outdoor tasks. Stumbling around drunk and fierce arguments in public with her husband, what's not to love? It's like reality tv in my town. My town needs more women and more great outdoor tasks like these. The task length inconsistacies and joint tasks everyone complains about don't bother me in the slightest.

    Yeah, I take back my 'useless'vote... felt odd choosing it anyhow; was on the wavelength of all she pretty much does is shop, bicker, or fall off the wagon being unpleasant nonsense... always kinda despise sending Smithers off as a drunken wreck as well, but it's all actually fairly funny, decent, dirty fun :twisted:

    I don't know how any character that has a task can be considered "useless".

    Not to call you out specifically but here's what I don't get about the issues people have and comments like this. Add up how much money you accumulate in a day. I assume most top level fremium players make at least 100 k easy. Now look at how much income your losing because Bernice doesn't have her own 4 hour task. 300? 400? Does it really matter in the long run? That small amount is immaterial and probably not going to impact your purchases in any way so why stress it? I'm sure ea does this on purpose to encourage us to log in more. I say don't stress it and just tap the next shortest task, it's really not a big deal.

    I like her alot, sorry.. her task with Dr Hibbert is perfect and the 4 hour with Marge is funny, even though I wish it was visible..

    I had a problem with her for the first week, but then ur fingers get used to skipping certain characters as your setting them on their tasks (at least for me) and I always have her doin her thing with Marge or with her Husband, unless its post work then shes just making it to every single AA meeting she can! xD

    I think her 8 hour task with Dr Hibbert is one of the best. I just wish she had a four hour task of her own. To me useless is the egg on legs character. No tasks and not decorative. At least the Capital City Goofball is cute. (But would prefer him to have tasks, as well.)

    Sorry, I like her, especially her joint task with her husband. Seeing her following her husband around fighting with him is hilarious. That and Banner interrogating Flanders are my two favorite joint tasks. I do agree that a 2 hour task would be nice and a solo 4 hour task.

    My two favorites too. I really like her 'fall off the wagon' 12 hr task too.

    i use 24 hour tasks for almost everyone so i never notice if they are missing a 4 or 8 or whatever hour tasks so she doesn't bother me..

    the only character that annoys me in this game is tod flanders his soundbites are creepy (the i'll do anything and i mean anything)
