“Well, don’t break into the money before I get back.” -Herbert. In this “Monkey’s Paw” Herbert says this sentence. He says this, because his parents got greedy and wished for money to pay for their house. Their son was then killed in a machinery accident, so they were given money for his death on that company’s property. They lost their son to a tragic death, all because they got greedy for some money. That is why being thankful for what you have is an ideal that has been lost in society.
