Denial, understanding that Farhad may not have fully understood him decides to emphasize to Farhad that he replaced the lock and that Farhad needs to fix his door.

Los Angeles: Bob Yari Productions), Though the film portrayed several examples of Interpersonal conflict, the most glaring example was depicted in a scene where a small business owner named Farhad hires Locksmith named Daniel to repair a broken lock in his store.

For example, in the movie Wikus threatened Christopher by saying that he was going to take his child away if he didn’t evacuate his house immediately. Christopher realized Wikus wasn’t being fair to Christopher because it’s illegal to make someone evacuate without giving them 24 hours of notice. Even after all of that, Christopher was able to forgive Wikus.
‘“You got no right to come in my room. This here’s my room. Nobody got any right in here but me.’” When Crooks says this, it works in both ways, in that he isn’t allowed around the white workers, and they shouldn’t be around him. His defensive manner fades, however, once Lennie behaves kindly toward him, and he even considers helping Lennie and Candy with their plan to buy land until the threats

Patterson was gunned down outside his law office by the crime syndicate opposed to his plans to take charge and clean up the town. With a hometown hero dead and the heated flush of embarrassment coming from the rest of the state, Phenix City residents were finally compelled to turn the tide against the syndicate’s invaluable status quo. Now Phenix City is one of the nicer places to raise a
He wasn’t going to appear as himself though. Instead he disguised himself as the little old librarian that worked at the school. He told Benjamin that “If you have patience then it will come out but hitting the machine won’t do you any good”. Benjamin said “Shut up you stupid old hag.” Then Poppe decided to show himself to Benjamin and Benjamin’s jaw instantly dropped. Poppe told him that because he had no patience that the machine will take his money and give him nothing in return.
In my eyes I view the theme as being something along the lines do not ever settle on something you don not want to do. He was doing something he did not really want to do but he did not realize it until right before he died. If his job had not made him into a bitter old man that he was, it contributed more than enough. “Anders had never paid much attention to that part of the bank, a pompous old building with marble floors and counters and pillars, and gilt scrollwork over the tellers’ cages” (Wolf 107).
