This, more than his opinion on his mother or uncle, solidifies Hamlet’s tendency to never adjust his opinion of someone. In some cases, he supports this by claiming to know the truth of a situation, but in many cases he feels this way without any proof.

Falling behind in basic skills, and as well as social ones; Doodle continues to fall short of being regular and brother efforts seems to divulge into pride more than care. Of the many examples that was shown in the short story, I have decided to pull three of them for purpose of giving truth to his self evident pride of Doodle in relation to the struggle that Doodle faces.
