Lengel is the store manager and he is determined to let the girls know they are in the wrong for not dressing decently. Just as Lengel was scolding them Sammy was daydreaming about being in their living seeing their fathers in “Ice cream coats and bow-ties” and the women were wearing sandals eating snack while drinking
When a lovely lady comes up to Sammy’s register to check out, Sammy makes a mistake. Sammy complains “I ring up the HiHo crackers again and the customer starts giving me hell. She’s one of those cash-register watchers, a witch about fifty with rouge on her cheek bones and no eyebrows, and I know it made her day to trip me up.”(Updike 409). After the situation was sorted out, Sammy concludes “By the time I got her feathers smoother and her goodies into a bag – she gave me a little snort in passing, if she’d been born at the right time they would have burned her over in Salem.”(Updike 409). In my eyes, the way Sammy approached this situation was immature and irresponsible, because a simple apology could have changed the outcome.

Lucien is the guy that Amelie liked and working at a fruit/vegetable stand for an ungrateful and mean boss who us Mr.collignon.
When the Queenie takes out the money “out of the hollow at the center of her nibbled pink top” (Updike, P136) Sammy thinks it is cute but actually, it is a kind of rude to not wear like that in the store. Sammy was on the right track even he does not like it. He did not suppose to do anything when his boss blames the girls. But he falls into a desire---being a hero in front of them. This desire leads him to make a hasty decision without careful considerations---to quit his job.

At the store, yet again, Begged the owner- his name was Ben, "Give me a quadruple-scoop, triple fudge swirl, Make it a double, with a strawberry whirl!"
After reading the author’s take on perfection and imperfection, it has made me realize that imperfection is beautiful and the greatest things and moments in life are imperfect. I remember last summer, few of my friends and I got together for a movie and some good food. I was preparing the macaroni and cheese while my best friend Dena was preparing the shrimp tempura. I ended up putting cream cheese in the pot instead of butter. We didn’t realize this until after the cream cheese has fallen into a million little pieces.
