She misses out on her surroundings “She never saw the sun.”(101) Nevertheless, she still works with a great desire and determination every single day. The environment was just one of many reasons Lyddie should have signed the petition. This one is another. It tires her to the point of passing out.

Therefore, Franky didn’t feel like she wasn’t part of any club “we”. Bernice is part of the family, but again she’s not part of the family because if they ever move or go somewhere out of the town she can’t go.

Clarisse explains to Montag how no one does anything in school, and that their schedule consists of “an hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports” (27). No one learns anything in school because no one has a need for knowledge in daily life. In school, they do what their parents spend all day doing: watching TV and mindlessly going about their days. Mildred spends all day in her ‘parlor’, and not even TV has any meaning to it.

When she has countless amounts of errands to run, she never asks for anyone’s help. She always depends on herself, spending more time for work than her love life.

She never discussed her struggles to maintain everything by herself to Art.
She actually refuses to speak to another kid when he talks to her; she will not play any of their games. Bradbury writes, “If they tagged her and ran, she stood blinking after them and did not follow. When the class sang songs about happiness and life and games her lips barely moved” (156).
