Human evil is the act of a person doing something, knowing that the action they commit is very wrong. Like some people choose to do the right thing, there are also a handful of people who choose to do the wrong types of actions.

After this consumption of substances, one can begin to see a change in the narrator’s perspective. The narrator tells the blind man, “I’m glad for the company” (Carver 111), which comes in a stark contrast compared to earlier in the story when the narrator specifically says that he was not thrilled about Robert’s company. This change in perspective can be attributed to the intoxicants since these changes occur right after the consumption and the reader is given nothing else to attribute this change to. Beyond his verbal statements, the narrator carries his new attitude a step further. The narrator takes Robert’s hand in order to draw a cathedral on TV.
