Once in home again his wife serves him food with a resentful face, meaning she was hurt, which adds to my opinion in why we are not prepared to listen to the truth and it can hurt as much as lying, because she thought her cooking skills were good and now his husband sincerely tells her that in fact she can’t cook for good, leaving her sad, angry and
Seemed to me that grandmother has a case of hatred. Hatred is a bad feeling that a person has toward another thing or object, selfish. All the while even though his mother was not at home with him she still should have been teaching him to show respect to all his elders especially to his mother the woman who birthed him in the world. She should have taken a different
The community pities her but really doesn’t want to help her. Its almost like they talk about and keep an eye on her so that other people don’t find the “skeleton in their closets”. I like how the story is told, it helps us see how judgmental people can be in thinking they are helping someone else. Having the gossip tell the story brings more mystery into this short tale. I think that if they would have told it in any other point of view it wouldn’t have made as much of an impact on our society or southern society.
He states that the worst thing about being poor isn’t because of not having enough food but not having enough money to support him in difficult times. He even motivates himself by thinking “being hungry makes food taste better” (8). The worst thing happened to him that makes him hates being poor is when his family doesn’t have enough money to bring their dog to the doctor. By saying “I want to hate dad and mom for our poverty. I wanted to blame them for my sick dog and for all the other sickness in the world.” Although he doesn’t want to blames his parent and their previous generation to have born in a poor situation, he doesn’t have any order choice.
Her marriage was an arranged marriage and the young man was a clerk working for the Minister of Education. “She suffered from the poverty of her dwelling, from the worn walls, the abraded chairs, the ugliness of the stuffs” (Clugman, 2010) represents how she perceived her status. Her concern was she was not living in the royal manner she believed she was born to do. Her husband lifted “the cover of the tureen” (Clugman, 2010) and all her mind could do was wander to places where she had exquisite meals and service. He was quite satisfied with her cooking, but she was never satisfied.
While sitting in the restaurant and she began her usually tyrants of debatable conversation topics, as soon as the husband says something that is the opposite of what she says she starts in on him, except this time he just says nothings because at this point he is feeling embarrassed and do not want to fuel the fire. He gives short word answers that soon start agreeing with her and telling her she is right just to get her to calm down. She doesn’t stop, we want to get up from the
She forbids Scout and Jem from playing with Walter Cunningham because he is beneath their social status and fine family history. It is an unwritten rule that white people with a higher social class than other white people must be treated with respect. An example of this is when Scout notices Walter using a lot of gravy during dinner she is rude to him and is punished by Calpurnia. The reason for this is because Walter is of a lower class and was invited to eat with Atticus and his family. As a result, it is rude to not let him do what he wants to.
"Fish Cheeks" by Amy Tan is a short story of a little girl of Chinese foreigners that depicts her battles of being of an alternate society than that of her community's. It is depicted by a New Year's Eve supper that she had with a priest's family where as opposed to having the standard American supper that is connected with the festival that would comprise of cooked turkey and other such things, they had Chinese feast nourishment, for example, prawns, squid, and cod. Besides, the conduct that her relatives had were not of the American standard and at a few examples could be viewed as insolent, for example, when her dad had burped to demonstrate that he was fulfilled by the sustenance. At last, she felt humiliated by this supper and her mom had issued her an early blessing, which was a miniskirt and a beige tweed; she disclosed to her that while she needed to be similar to all the American young ladies, she would dependably be Chinese within, and that her just disgrace is "having disgrace." Only later, as a grown-up, she found herself able to completely admire this lesson and the reason behind the specific courses made at the supper since they were her most loved nourishments.
Always, for everything, even dumb shit like what you’re having for dinner. One of the worst feelings is having your plans get all fucked up and not having anything to fall back on. The flood supported my theory that I’ve had for quite a while that it is imperative that you are careful about the things/people that you become close to. The things that make you the happiest in life also have the ability to make you the saddest you’ve ever been if they get taken away. Putting a lot of emotional investment into inanimate objects is one of the worst ideas you can have in my opinion.
When I criticize and attack myself, it is because knowing I failed makes me think about if i had tried harder then it would have made a difference. Negative self concept is often hidden from the world because we are suppose to perceive ourself with positivity in order to be accepted but that can change. Self concept is basically the beliefs and attitudes we role play in our lives. In How to Improve Your Self Concept, it mentions “your attitudes about yourself may be positive for some roles, and not so positive for others”. There will always be negative views because we do not live even near a Utopia society and we cannot please everybody.
