She does need to learn how to get on with people she doesn't like, and it's not by being churlish and immature.
Of course Justin has his own agenda, but Pip was rude. She really needed some time spent working for someone other than her parents, so that she could learn some life skills, but that's not going to happen now, unfortunately.
Most of us are never in that position, and learn how to deal with people whom we don't much like, or with whom we disagree, but who are higher up the ladder than we are. Pip has never acquired this skill.
And continuing to sulk about Phoebe is equally childish.

That reminds me: Did anyone hear the actress who was the previous incarnation of Pip? She sounded very childlike in one of the 15 minute serials last week (the 10;45 one I think on Radi 4). Still sounded like a Whining brat, but much funnier as a 30 yr old being a carer/friend to an aged Lady - who was also funny.
Yes I think her continued grouch about Phoebe says it all. Phoebe behaved badly but is still young, she´s 21/22 I think? whereas Pip is supposed to be in her late 20s/early 30s, isn't she?, and so allowing Phoebe the benefit of her experience and wisdom, ha!, and calling time on their fallout would´ve been the more mature thing to have done. But oh no, Pip likes a good wallow in feeling hard done by. Much like her mum.
Pip is a few years older than Phoebe, but not yet in her 30s, I think.
I agree completely that she should, the point having been made, have been adult about the situation, but she does like to hold grudges, doesn't she? She has Toby grovelling around her, at her back and call whenever she wants to abandon her baby, and Rex is always there to be the devoted uncle.
Basically, she's never really been in a situation where she has to be nice to someone to get what she wants; the reverse, in fact, they all have to dance to her tune.
