Through a dangerous circumstance, Tom Benecke risks his life trying to fill his empty pockets; however, he learns what he should have been filling his pockets with all along. Tom Benecke is a tall, lean, dark-haired man who is more concerned about success at work than the truly important things in his life such as his wife. This character was interesting to me because of the lessons he learns about life and himself throughout the story. I do not like Tom's selfishness and his obsession with work, but in the end of the story I came to admire the choices he makes to change himself. A friend of mine reminds me of Tom because she always puts other things before her family.
Now back to me. Sadly, he isn't me. But if he stopped using lady-scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he's me." This is what actor, Isaiah Mustafa, said in Old Spice's quite comical 30 second, “Smell like a man, man” commercial. Viewers can acknowledge that Isaiah Mustafa is a good looking man(he was a pro football player after all).
The police searched his house and actually found $14,000 in ransom money, since the serial numbers of the bills matched with the ones from the ransom, providing a bit of evidence that he was guilty (Aaseng 17). Hauptmann already had a criminal record, as he was arrested and spent 3 years in prison for various crimes and felonies like armed robbery in Germany, which was where he was born (Newton 220.) Not long afterwards, It was discovered that Hauptmann had used a plank form his attic for use part of the ladder used to break in (Aaseng 18). Then the police got some handwriting experts to help out, “Later, his (Bruno Hauptmann) handwriting was compared with that of the ransom notes. It matched.” (Barclay 2) Considering how all this seemed to point in Hauptmann’s direction, it was no surprise that the police believed that this guy really was the kidnapper.
He felt let down in his father, as he didn't arrest anyone or carry a gun, "And that disappointed me at times". David saw Wes as a great role model later when he realized what a challenge it was choosing between being a brother, sheriff and an employer to Marie. David starts to see his father in a different way because of the difficult situation he was in, evidence of this is shown when he "could appreciate the situation his father was in" therefore gaining respect for him. Unlike Wes, Frank was a negative role model to David. In Montana shows that David believed that Frank was the perfect "manly" role model until his true colours showed.
They had each other, and therefore didn't live the life of solitude and isolation like many other farmhands. George had always been Lennie's caretaker. The responsibility had been overwhelming for George, but still they had each other. They knew the good and bad sides of each other and accepted them. This made them different from other farmhands in a positive way.
The men who view him this way are totally different from each other. For example, George plays the role of the family member to Lennie, which at times makes him act cruel towards Lennie. At first, Crooks views Lennie as just another one of the workers who treats him badly then later realizes he is a nice and caring man. Curley on the other hand strongly dislikes big men and being that Lennie is a big guy, Curley never gives Lennie a chance to be friends. Lennie is viewed by s few characters in the novel and it affects their characterization.
He shows responsibility through his willingness to keep everyone together as a team, and work together. He also shows responsibility when he calls meeting to decide on decisions all together. This proves that he is fair and democratic. He shows responsibility when he cares for the younger boys, which nobody really cared to pay attention to. Also when he listens to Piggy who was being ignored by everyone else.
James was very aware of how sick he was, but he did not feel worthy of being helped, because he felt he would only let someone down. When I think about disease versus choice, in James’s case I would go with choice! James proved over time that “choice” was the only way he stayed at the clinic, participated, and stayed clean. He was not given anything to stop the emotional pain, and he did not find out about his grandfathers drinking or his ear infections until he has already made the choice to stay and to complete the program on his
