It was obviously all lies as Pete figured out quickly that Webster was a con man. When Pete woke up from a little nap he had noticed that Webster had left, and Donald explained how he let him out and he went to his brother’s house. When they need gas Pete insisted that Donald used the money he had given him to pay for the gas. Donald confesses that he gave it to Webster before he left.

He pointed his pool cue at me. "Holler if you need me," he said and winked at me as if to say he knew I could take care of myself, that this was just a part of my job……...In the car, Dad took out the money he 'd won and counted off forty dollars, which he passed to me. "We make a good team," he said.” Rex seems like a parent who isn 't afraid to show his daughter a adult way to get money: scamming. He seems like a parent who is showing her the reality of getting money in hard times.

Who, in comparison with his brother, has a whole different look then his brother, the story had said, “Donald was bony, grave, and obsessed with the fate of the soul”(364). Saying this, it completely adds to the fact that people couldn’t believe that these two men are brothers. As well as these two brothers looking different from one another the story also emphasizes that unlike his brother Pete, who was married and had kids, Donald is , “the younger brother, was still single”(364). This probably shows why Donald was such a carefree person because he doesn’t have any responsibilities to deal with as an adult, while his brother had many responsibilities to look over throughout his life. In addition, “He lived alone, painted houses when he found the work, and got deeper in debt to Pete when he didn’t” (364).
He first approaches his essay in a carefree manner and at the same time, adding humor to his writing to make a more positive feeling for the readers. He continues to use a informal type of writing style to make the audience more connected and not feel too overwhelmed by using too many big words. Barry uses words such as "scum" to describe all mens relationship with the kitchen, in the sense that they are worthless when it comes to doing pretty much anything in the kitchen. Though the word “scum” has a negative connotation, men are technically “scum" because they are more focused on watching the Detroit Lions, rather than watching their own children. Another thing Barry does is he uses Antithesis, he starts off with a topic that’s completley diferent than the one he is actually going to address throughout the essay.
“The Pursuit of Happyness,” directed by Gabriele Muccino is a film which I found myself greatly admiring. It is inspired by a true story and is about a man named Christopher Gardner who heavily invests his savings into portable bone density scanners, believing that they will be a great success and will support him and his family. However, they do not sell well as they only give a slightly better picture than an x-ray at double the price. This leads to him being extremely financially unstable and so he loses everything; his wife leaves him, he loses his house, bank accounts and credit cards but yet he manages to at least have his young son. After this tragedy, Gardner continues to sell bone density scanners whilst living on the streets and simultaneously taking on an unpaid internship.

The Wolf of Wall Street directed and produced by Martin Scorsese is certainly one of these movies. It is based on the life of a stockbroker whose name is Jordan Belfort in New York. Even at the beginning, the character says that "money makes you invincible" not only in his words but also in his life always the importance of money is emphasised. While Jordan Belfort is a naive stockbroker at first, suddenly he starts to become rich day by day. So, the movie dreams up myths that everyone can be rich if they work enough as İrfan Erdoğan says just like the words of Jordan Belfort.
