In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck argues that being loyal is a valuable concept in life, but can sometimes be very difficult. His message is sometimes in relationships, everything can go the wrong way and you have nothing else to do except the right thing, even if it isn’t being loyal. Since Lennie didn’t know allot of things about life and common sense, George is forced to teach him everything. Sitting down by the river after running away from their job because of Lennie again, a pissed off George yells, “Well, we ain’t got any, whatever we ain’t got that’s what you want.” (11) Lennie’s lack of intelligence and his actions repeatedly effect their job security.
