One of her biggest challenges was working with Douglas Henry, who was the company’s key punch and computer sections supervisor (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2009). Rabidue and other female colleagues were exposed to Henry’s vulgarity, hateful comments towards women, and obscene posters demoralizing women. Upper management had been informed of it, but had only given Henry friendly advice to curb the behavior, which had not been effective. Rabidue was also faced with challenges of not being able to perform her duties or receive the same courtesies and benefits as the other managers such as: free lunches, free gasoline, a telephone credit card or entertainment privileges (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2009). She was unable to take clients to lunch because of how it would be perceived.
An example of Evyn being unintelligent was when her so-called friends, Andrea’s group, calls her Evelyn and doesn’t talk to her unless it’s to ask about updates with Ajax, she doesn’t realize that they’re just using her. Evyn was also, very inconsiderate and selfish. She didn’t seem to notice how happy her father, Birdie was after he had proposed to Eleni. Evyn doesn’t seem to care what his father felt and made it harder for him. “Bounce” was an interesting book that showed problems that actually happen to 13 year olds.
Also, by staying separated from the world, he doesn’t have many influences or motivations. When Rowdy asks if Junior wants to visit the powwow, he refuses because, “Those rhythmless, talentless, tuneless Indians are most likely to get drunk and beat the shit out of any available losers. And [he is] the most available loser.” Junior proceeds to criticize himself and refer to himself as a loser. His fear of getting beaten up by other Indians causes him to be socially inept. As the story progresses, Junior is influenced and motivated to make a change in his
Roseâ€™s teachers were a nightmare; from an abusive homeroom teacher â€œhe would lose control and shake or smack usâ€ to an English professor who had little training in the subject. In Angelouâ€™s essay, the problem is with the injustice of the system, there was no support from the government, but they had support from the community, unlike Rose. Rose was a mediocre student at best â€œI developed further into a mediocre student and a somnambulant problem solver, and that affected the subjects I did have the wherewithal to handleâ€ he just did things to get by; there was no real connection with his studies. Angelou was an honors student, her â€œacademic work was among the best of the year,â€ marked differences that only point to a system that does not recognize greatness, in Angelou because of the color of her skin, in Rose because of an administrative error; a confusion with another Rose; a placement test that categorized him as

That is why Twain criticizes those who are superstitious, because all it is is one mans word; there is no way of knowing if the event is actually related to the amount of luck an individual has. In chapter four of the novel, we see Huck worrying over bad luck, yet again. He becomes superstitious that he will have bad luck because he tipped over the salt cellar and was not able to throw a pinch of salt over his shoulder. He said, "…the Widow put in a good word for me, but that warn't going to keep off the bad luck, I knowed that well enough" (15). Again we see Huck worrying that he will have serious bad luck ,in the future, because of something minor that happened in the present.
Like when Tara, Kristen and Keesha were looking at the magazines, Keesha didn’t understand why skin and bones were attractive to Kristen. Kessha also didn’t understand why Tara could never walk with her to or from school, Keesha just thought that her friends were weird until their conditions got out of hand and she got worried about them. *Donna’s influence on Tara was surprisingly good. Considering that Donna is more of a “wild child” and Tara is a “goody-good” I think they balance each other out. While Donna was smoking, stealing or having sex Tara was getting “lost in her mind”.
When some of the townsfolk speak of the possibly of stopping the lottery, Old Man Warner gets very angry and silences them. Since there is no “savior” of these people, the Pharisees such as Old Man Warner are able to silence those who question the tradition with no resistance. Anyone who has a basic knowledge of the Gospels would clearly be able to spot the similarities between them and “the Lottery.” Oehlschlaeger clearly saw this resemblance in the basic structure of “the Lottery”, but is quick to point out that the main difference between the Gospels and “the Lottery” is that Shirley Jackson failed to include a “savior” of the people. Without this “savior”, the townspeople are free to continue with the lottery as they please. I believe that the Gospel where Jesus prevents a woman from being stoned to death was the biggest inspiration to Shirley Jackson when writing her
``She began to doubt whether Steven would come in such a storm even a mile was enough to make a man hesitate. Especially Steven, who, for all his attractive qualities, was hardly one to face a blizzard for the sake of someone else`s chores`` (233). She was starting to believe she was going to have to fight the storm herself. This put fright into the story because she had no idea what she should do to keep herself safe and the animals at the same time. “No matter how blinding the storm she could at least find her way back to the house” (233), this demonstrates how violent it was.
The Things They Carried “My Take On Things” By Jodi Massie   Table of Contents Love 3 Spin 4 Enemies & Friends 5 The Dentist 6 Part 2 On The Rainy River (My Hard Decision Piece) How To Tell A War Story Speaking Of Courage LOVE My interpretation of Jimmy and Martha’s “relationship” is that there wasn’t a relationship at all. I feel that the more he forced a relationship with her the more he pushed her away. He wanted there to be more than there actually was. But didn’t make his move because he knew she was opposed to it. While at war he realized “what could have been” if only he told her how he felt.
