He would believe that Charlie would have gotten a promotion or even a raise because Charlie had saved his manager, Mr. Donnegan, money, and he was also at work every day, unless he had surgery. After this gathered information, the reader would seem shocked after finding that Charlie lost his job. This event, like many others, was least expected. If the reader or audience knows something that a character or characters do not know, then this is a form of dramatic irony. "It's a funny thing I never knew that Joe and Frank and the others liked me around all the time to make
Malcolm Gladwell on spaghetti sauce In this speech by Malcolm Gladwell, He starts out the speech mentioning about his book that he was there to promote, “blink”. He says although the book makes him happy and his mother happy but the book is not about happiness so instead he decides to change the subject to talk about a personal hero of his, a man that brought happiness to Americans for the past 20 years, Dr. Howard Moskowitz, who is most famous for reinventing spaghetti sauce.

He’s a jerk to everyone else. Kenny and Frank were close so sometimes even Frank would make fun of Tub or something mean. Kenny is a very manipulative person and can make anyone feel down.
Stupid fella couldn't swim and I never realised. I felt guilty as hell at that point too, but he still thanked me when I let him out. Sure, I guess Lennie was a burden to me, but he gave me good company. He was my partner, but now he's gone I feel so lonely. Even with slim, candy an the other guys.
1. Analyze Dorothy West’s “The Typewriter” in terms of the slavery versus freedom theme so prominent in the text. Although his life was a bit difficult, Lucius Jones had no trouble at all performing odd jobs to make ends meet. In a sense, he is bound, or enslaved, by the inability to eke out a living that netted nothing more than frankfurters and beans for a meal.
