Kalia Yang started the story talking about his nephew preference for black trees, not bright trees, showing that all colors of the trees are beautiful not just the bright ones. Then she talks about his husband and when she first saw his husband, she never taught to marry him. Aaron used to hear her given the public speech and one day he sends her an email inviting for breakfast. She accepted for lunch and they met at the Hmong restaurant, but it was just a casual meeting to talk about work. Aaron was not his type of man who she will marry.
Mrs. Jones kindness to Roger change him from going pocketbook snatching. Acorrding to the text Mrs. Jones started to trust Roger because while she was in the kitchen cooking Roger was in the front room by her purse. Also in the text Mrs. Jones told Roger that shoes come in devilish ways may burn your feet. On page 33 Mrs. Jones told Roger next time do not make the mistake of latching onto my pocketbook nor nobody elses. Also on page 33 Mrs. Luella Bate Washington Jones asked Roger to behave herself from here on in
“It was like a fortune to me,” says Stewart. “I said to myself, ‘thank you, Lord.’” Then he paid for the breakfast he ordered, left a tip, pushed his car to the nearest gas station and left town. Then it dawned on him, nobody dropped the money. But Horn had helped him out in a way that would not embarrass him. “Right then, I made a promise,” I said, “Lord, if you ever put me in a position to help other people, I will do it.” Eventually he moved to Kansas City.
In the story, thank you, ma’am the character Rodger comes from a home with no parents and no one to tell him right from wrong. Rodger tries to steal a woman’s purse her name was Mrs. Jones, who afterward takes him in and teaches him a huge lesson on good things come from good actions, which I think changed him. Only because after meeting Mrs. Jones on page 32 Rodger stated “do you need someone to go to the store to get some milk or something?” Because he wants to earn his trust back as you see Rodger knows right from wrong even without parents he chooses the wrong things only because he is rather too lazy to work for it or he just turns to stealing because it’s his only choice left to get what he wants. By Mrs. Jones repaying him
Connie’s first encounter with Friend was at a diner when he stated to Connie, “Gonna get you, baby”(pg.1142). Because Connie was use to this type of attention, she did not view it as strange that an older man was calling her in such away. However, if Connie had seen Friend as dangerous instead of just another man, her kidnapping might have been prevented. Later in the story when Friend showed up as Connie’s house, she walked outside and talked to him instead of questioning how he knew where she lived or calling the police. Oates described Connie's interaction with Friend by stating,“Connie liked the way he was dressed, which was the way all of them dressed: tight faded jeans stuffed into black, scuffed boots, a belt that pulled his waist in and showed how lean he was, and a white pullover shirt that was a little soiled and showed the hard muscles of his arms and shoulders”(pg.1145).
I went to Florence Mall to pick and choose A gift for a party that I could take. I thought of buying a pair of blue shoes, But they were only two cents and were fake. I could travel and buy a pit bull dog, But then my bank account would look real bad. I could just go and buy a farmer’s hog, But then the birthday girl would be real mad. I tried to find some chocolate candy hearts, But there was no one I could find to sell.
For example, “The Diary of Anne Frank” states, “It may be damp and lopsided, but there’s probably not a more comfortable hiding place in all of Amsterdam. … Yesterday mother felt well enough to cook split-pea soup for the first time, but then she was downstairs talking and forgot all about it” (Frank 374). Although the text does not directly state Anne’s optimism helped her mother recover, it is inferred that if Anne hadn’t been so grateful and appreciative, her mother would’ve felt negatively about the Annex too, for she had been forced to keep her family there. In addition, “The Diary of Anne Frank” also states, “So much has happened it’s as if the whole world has suddenly turned upside down. But as you can see, Kitty I’m still alive, and that’s the main thing, Father says” (Frank 373).
Why would someone offer underserving mercy to others? In the story of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, Holmes receives a goose with a blue carbuncle in it. Through clues, he caught up the thief Robinson that steals the blue carbuncle, but at last, Holmes let him away. In another short story, Thank you Ma’am, Mrs. Luella not only made a dinner for Roger, the boy who put his hands on her purse, also gave him ten dollars to buy a pair of shoes. Both Mrs. Luella and Holmes believe that if they give them a second chance, Roger and Robinson would walk on the right way and not commit crime again.
We discover more about one 's capabilities of doing bad when she discovers that she had become a paid mistress that night. She realises this when she states "I had not made up my mind what I would say to Nina when I got home. Would I ask her if she, too, was required to be naked in that house—if she had known perfectly well what sort of an evening was waiting for me? Or would I say nothing and wait for her to ask me? And, even then, would I say innocently that I’d eaten Cornish hen and yellow rice, and that it was very good?
There are countless positives of compassion and we can see numerous examples in the short story “Thank You Ma’am”.After bringing home Roger to clean him up because she understands his suffering, Mrs. Jones says, “Eat some more, son...take this ten dollars and buy yourself some blue suede shoes” (Hughes 4). This gracious acts not only brings joy to Roger but also brings great pleasure to Mrs. Jones as well. Based on the information that Raymond Carter gives us in the story, we can likely conclude that Mrs. Jones lives a lonely life without the presence of any children or family. Even though the word “son” that the author uses in the story is a word many people use to describe a little boy and not literally their son, it can be used both literally and figuratively in this story. By showing compassion towards Roger, she finds happiness in being able to care for Roger if he was her very own child.
“ I have done things too, which I will not tell you,” Mrs.Luella Bates Washington Jones said to Roger the boy that tried to steal her purse. In the story “ Thank You Ma 'am ” I believe that Mrs Jones is caring because Mrs. Jones brings Roger into her house, and tries to help Roger. The most obvious why Mrs.Jones is caring is because she lets Roger into her house even when he tried to steal her purse, I know I would never just let him in my house if he tried to steal my purse I would of called the police. First of all she brings Roger to her house and then makes him dinner. I would never make a boy dinner who tried to steal my purse.
As Scout matures and understands the world in a new way, she learns the perspectives of her fellow townspeople in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. In the beginning of the novel, Miss Caroline attempts to provide Walter Cunningham with money. Understanding the Cunningham’s position to “never [take] anything off of anybody,” Scout realizes Walter’s inability to accept Miss Caroline’s offer (30). Subsequently, when Walter pours molasses over his dinner, Scout’s own ability to understand Walter’s side surpasses her aptitude. After Scout ridicules Walter, Calpurnia scolds her for not letting Walter do as he wishes.
While Camilla Lewis from Smith’s paper can relate to that “cheapness” she is forced to feed her two-year-old son processed foods, even though he has a digestive illness, she is left with no option except “low-priced items like chicken nuggets and instant mashed potatoes” (as cited in Smith, 2014). “Neglecting the inequalities that exist at the local level cannot only fail to solve existing problems but engender new ones” (Smirl4). Comparing the two leads me to believe that some families wouldn’t pursue a choice like Lewis’, that some would use the money out of their own pocket. Stephon Johnson (2013), a man who wrote about millions of New Yorkers facing food stamp cuts stated, “An average family of three will lose twenty-nine dollars a month.” Twenty-nine dollars may not seem like a lot, but if your already living paycheck to paycheck that money may be the difference of keeping your lights on. When situations like these go unsolved and people continue to go hungry what are we really doing to our country?
