An example of one of these is Ponyboy’s internal desire to become like the other greasers versus the part of Pony that dislikes fighting and the other antics of the greasers. In this conflict, Ponyboy wants to fit in with the other greasers. An example of this is on the night of the rumble when ponyboy says,” Why do I fight? I thought, and couldn’t think of any real good reason. There isn’t any real good reason for fighting except self-defense.” This quote displays that Ponyboy dislikes fighting and most likely is doing it to either help his friends or to conform to the other greasers.
In a passage in the story, it says ‘“Let me fight Darry…” said Ponyboy. “Well”-Darry gave in- “ I guess you can”’ (Hinton 135). As a matter of fact, Pony shouldn’t be fighting at all, because it’s a precarious activity. Darry is encouraging violence to him, and that shouldn’t be acceptable on his behalf, because he should be a good influence on him, not a bad one. Darry is putting Pony’s life at risk when he doesn’t think about the decisions he has made thoroughly, like when he says in the story, ‘“Listen, Soda , you and Ponyboy” Darry said as we strode down the street, “if the fuzz show, you two beat it out of there, The rest of us can get jailed”’ (Hinton 137).

Dally replied no and, “‘Shoot my old man don 't give a hang whether I’m in jail or dead in a car wreck”’(88).

The reason I believe this is sad because before Ren moves to Bomont, his mother dies of cancer back in Boston, and his father is a dead beat. His mother gives him a sense of security in the old movie that he doesn't have in the new movie. Which gets made up for by his Uncle Wesley and his Aunt Vi. One scene that is relatively the same is the scene where Chuck openly abuses Ariel. He tells her to get out of the truck and she starts vandalizing the truck with a piece of steel rebar and he gets out an beats her up.
Though this idea is not specifically mentioned in the story, it is clear that this plot twist acts as a consequence of her poor judgment all while contrasting with her husband’s inferred “wisdom”. Unfortunately, while one is unable to know what occurred immediately after, it can be assumed that she never reunited with her estranged husband after their metaphorical divorce. In “When the Grizzlies Walked Upright”, despite taking part in creating entire new intelligent species, the Chief of the Sky Spirits’ becomes enraged at his long-lost daughter because he could not take credit and glares her to death before throwing her over his shoulder and marching her back up the mountain to their home. The ending of this particular myth attempts to teach women in their society to follow in the lead of their male tribe members or risk certain failure and subsequent penalty, either by Fate or their tribe.

Dramatical irony is written to show the audience suspense when the audience knows something that the character does know, but the other characters doesn’t. We know that Sedaris knows nothing about the man besides the fact of him riding the plane to his mother’s funeral. When Sedaris couldn’t handle that this man was over exaggerating his sadness of his mother passing, Sedaris concludes in his head extraordinary things: the sick mother in a hospital bed, calling her son who can’t visit her because his wife “was getting her stripper's license,” “He'd been asked to speak at his son's Alateen meeting,” and rudely replies to his mom, "I'll come at the end of dogracing season" (5). Just when you think Sedaris would calm down, he quickly mentions, “She rides to her death on a lumpy gurney and he flies in Business Elite to her funeral. The man killed his mother with neglect and because of that I can't watch a movie on a plane?” (5).
