This is our first taste of the truly bizarre nature of this story – Bartleby, who has been a solid employee up to this point, refuses point-blank to obey a simple order. Everyone is mystified (except Bartleby, that is). He continues to "prefer not to" do anything but copy documents, even when the smallest favors are asked of him. We're not sure what to make of this refusal, and neither is the Narrator. Complication Bartleby "gives up" work and is fired…sort of.

Almost one-third of car wrecks are caused by teen drivers, a whole thirty percent! If we took out that one-third of car wrecks out of the total amount of car wrecks a year in the united states there would only be a total of four million car wrecks instead of an astounding six million! Also teenage drivers pose a threat to other drivers. Since there are six million car wrecks a year in the united states that means that there is a total of twelve million cars wrecked in the united states approximately every year. If teenage drivers were taken out of that equation a total of at least four million people would not have to go through the trouble of getting in a car wreck in the United States every year.
