And once he lost his “only” weapon, to him the fight was already over. In his mind, he had already lost. Second of all, there was more pressure on him since he didn’t only have to protect himself and his friends who had the same potential to protect themselves. He had to protect a park ranger, and a whole family- everyone else who couldn’t really have done anything even if they tried. He needed to protect everyone else who were inexperienced and didn’t even think that this situation could possibly happen in real life.
Frank McCourt is held back by an alcoholic father and a depressed, helpless mother. When he is old enough, Frank is finally able to acknowledge his parents problems: “I know when Dad does the bad thing. I know when he drinks the dole money and Mam is desperate and has to beg at the St.Vincent de Paul Society” (McCourt 208). On the rare occasions when money is present in the McCourt household, Malachy thinks of himself before his family and is not responsible in regards to putting the money to good use. As opposed to buying food, upgrading their house, or saving the money for later, it goes to waste at the bar and gives Angela no other option but to resort to asking charity organizations for assistance.

He attempts to undertake good deeds to help others such as the Craters with their house work and the wandering boy with advice, but continues to fall short even by the end of the story.
The narrator said, “During the first fortnight, Gregor’s parents could not bring themselves to enter his room…” He has been disconnected from his family to the point where they’re emotionally unstable and unable to treat him as he deserves with affection and comfort to help him cope with his metamorphosis. The narrator shows this disconnection before the mutation,”Gregor later earned so much money that he was in a position to cover the expenses for the entire family…” He later described the exchange not “particularly warm”. Gregor feels alienated by his parents because of the lack of affection for him providing for them. This change has long since happened but is in full affect more than ever since the transmutation. Overall Gregor has changed both physically and emotionally.
In like manner, the Misfit's idea on the grandmother is surprising when he communicates that "she would have been a not too bad woman had she had some individual there to shoot her every snapshot of her life" (955). Most of O'Connor's devices enhance the general plot. "A Good Man is Hard to Find" retells a record of all the severe dislike in this world and that it is so tricky a tolerable person. By making strong characters and using figurative tongue and creative frameworks, O'Connor leaves the reader with a story that is stacked with meanders heedlessly.
