When we look at the grandmother in the story, we see many traits of which cause problems and precarious situations. The grandmother when looked at closely is the main reason that all the problems in the story happened. In the beginning of the story she displays a stubborn attitude and shows a spirit of independency; maybe too much. She carefully sneaks her cat into the car, and later down the road the cat sneaks out, jumps on the drivers face, and causes them to have a wreck. As seen in the article “A Good Man is Hard To Find” it states “The grandmother never turns her critical eye on herself to inspect her own hypocrisy, dishonesty, and selfishness.

Following the demonstrations, when the actual war starts, Marji’s parents take her on a vacation to Italy and Spain, for three whole weeks.

In both cases there is the impression of losing or lacking something and sadness of failure. It can be assumed that the loss of happiness is the most important issue in those two short stories.
