Updike illustrate the use of external and internal conflict through its main character. In the story “A&P” by John Updike it begin with the main character the reader working at a grocery store. Sammy (the cashier) watches three girls enter with bathing suits to look through the A&P. When his manager punishes the girls for wearing nothing but bathing suits, Sammy quits in a strong and kind attempt to help them save face. The girls take no attention and leave the store.
She is walking out of her room into a home with a pestering mother who is pressuring her to enter the Selection, which she sees as a waste of time and energy considering everything she finds joy in is right where she is right now, and an overload of stress from the responsibility of finding job opportunities to help her family barely make it in their society. Just like a pit of snakes, you have to keep your eyes open for threats or opportunities in order to avoid getting
For example, there is girly existed in Scout, “The ladies were cool in fragile pastel prints: heavily powdered... the only lipstick in the room was Tangee Natural... Cutex Natural sparkled on their fingernails...the younger ladies wore Rose.” (pg. 233) As a matter of fact, in the past, the protagonist always acting like she was afraid of ladies, but Scout actually knew about beauty and paid attention their faces, lips, and nails, she even informs the reader the brands. By all means, the old Jean Louise will not bother to see what these women in Maycomb are wearing, Scout’s description very details. Generally speaking, taking many judgements from people, Jean Louise also fascinated by them; there are still parts of her against the ideas of ladylike, but over time, she changed, before, Scout always disagreed with Aunt Alexandra, who tried to teach her how to behave right, but recently, the protagonist acted softly - just a young lady. From a tomboy, Scout started to turn into a little
But I too have been a sales associate at one point with an ear piece, and there was no one walking out of the door or near the entrance other than my sister-in-law and I, who also happened to be the only people of color in the store. I ignored it and decided to continue on until another associate upfront staring us down as well, as if we were going to steal every and any thing in sight. I immediately got uncomfortable and discouraged, and told my sister-in-law that I would like to leave the mall and go home. She knew I was eager to make this purchase as well as a few others, because I am a full-time college student as well as a full time employee who just got promoted to a supervisor and I wanted to treat myself in light of the good news. I have been racially profiled at a few stores, but continued to make my purchase.
I arrived at 8 am just like I do everyday. When I arrived I notice that the body was already in place inside of the Worship Center. This was something that I was concerned about because I didn’t know if the air conditioner was on or not so I walked over to check. I felt that it was on and I notice that people already started showing up, so I called Jeff to let him know. He didn’t answer his phone and I 'm not going to tell anyone they can 't see their loved one .
The girls come in nothing but bathing suits and with no shoes. Sammy describes the regular customers he sees when he mentions “women generally put on a shirt or shorts or something before they get out of the car into the street. And anyway these are usually women with six children and varicose veins mapping their legs and nobody, including them, could care less” (Updike).Sammy is excited because not everyday you you get to experience customers like three girls. (2) Sammy leaving his job symbolizes his first step to independence and a life full of adventures. He quits because he will not work for Lengel whom criticizes the lifestyle he wishes to have.
Indecency, gawking, and awkwardness. In John Updike’s short story, “A&P,” made in 1961, it elicits three girls who walk into a grocery store, half naked. Due to the girls, as said before, indecency, causes the two cashiers to gawk towards them, mainly preferring the “Queen,” and leads the other customers to feeling a sense of awkwardness. I believe that the main character, Sammy, is NOT a hero. He does not stick up for the women as Sammy’s boss was bashing against them for their acts of belligerence, he quits his job to show to the women he’s on their side only to be disappointed and jobless, and instead of removing the women because of their display, him and the other cashier, Stokesie, just stand by, studying the women.
