It is here that the readers are shown how Lydia and George as essentially useless as parents to the children as it is the children who are telling them to go ahead and eat without them. It is the children giving orders to the parents and not the other way around, which therein lies the issue: the imbalance of power within the family because of the technology; which makes the parents feel useless and the children powerful as they are the ones controlling the technology. Unfortunately, the parents were unable to shift the power back in their favor and restore the family roles; leading to fatal events in their home. All throughout the short story, Bradbury alludes to death whether subtle or not and the overall intrinsic nature of people. Bradbury describes the several settings of the nursery: Wonderland, Oz, and even the moon, but George notices the nursery’s preoccupation with the african veldt: “But now, is yellow hot Africa, this bake oven with murder in the heat...Perhaps they needed a little vacation from the fantasy which was growing a bit too real for ten-year- old children” (Bradbury 4).
The conflict between nature and civilization is exposed through Widow Douglas and Miss Watson’s efforts to civilize Huck, Huck’s appreciation for the raft, and the deceptive king and duke. From the beginning of the novel, Huck does not want to conform to society. He describes how dreadful it is to live with Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson, and deal with their efforts to civilize him. He says, "it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal and regular and decent the widow was in all her ways" (Twain 9). When the rules become too much and he cannot stand them any longer, Huck would “lit out" (9).
In Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Cask of Amontillado” and Zora Neale Hurston’s short story “Sweat” the two characters are consistently belittled by the antagonist in the stories. In “Sweat” Delia is an average housewife, but unfortunately she is in an abusive relationship with her husband named Sykes, who has a tendency to degrade Delia. Throughout the story, Sykes treats Delia horribly and towards the end of the story, Delia finally realizes that she has had enough of her abusive husband because he makes her feel as if she is not worth anything. Due to Sykes’ tendency to degrade her, Delia is considered to be a sympathetic character. The same kind of conflict affects the narrator in Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Cask of Amontillado.” During the story, the narrator, Montresor, consistently gets put down by his friend Fortunato, who mocked the narrator’s family name.
The one thing I hate the most is rude/ disrespectful people. I just started working and Dairy Queen so I am considered a trainee; well I’ve had to deal with a few rude people already which sucks, because people need to realize the meaning of a trainee. It means I’m just now learning so; people need to slow down with their orders, and be patient. One lady got angry because I gave her the wrong change because after I hit cash she decided to give me more change, so it was an easy fix for my manager, but she was being completely rude about it. She had started yelling, and we were already packed so I was already stressed, so her being rude didn’t help me out at all.
