Holden shows this by slacking off leading to his expulsion from school. “ They gave me frequent warning to start applying myself…but I didn’t do it. So I got the ax.” Holden proves this theme once more by vandalizing in a fit of rage over the death of his little brother Allie. “I was only thirteen…I broke all the windows in the garage.” Even when Holden does not express his negativity physically he expresses them mentally. “I’m always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met.” “I felt more depressed much more depressed than sexy.” When a young man turns his back on sex there is definitely something wrong.
When Stradlater, someone he knows as very sexually intimate, went on a date with Jane, Holden’s childhood friend, Holden became so angry that he reacted physically: “I got off from the bed… and then I tried to sock him, with all my might, right smack in the toothbrush, so it would split his goddamn throat open” (43). This shows that Holden feels it his responsibility to preserve all innocence, to prevent people or things from becoming phony. His failure to do so results in uncontrollable bouts of rage. When he reads swear words in the bathroom of his sister’s school, he says “I kept wanting to kill whoever’d written it” (201). He was thinking about all the children who would see the words, and felt powerless to stop its effects, so he became extremely angry.
He is supposed to go home at Christmas Break and not return, however, things don’t work out like that. A situation progresses into a first fight when Holden finds out that his roommate had sex with a girl named Jane Gallagher, who it becomes apparent that Holden loves. Holden loses the fight and grabs his bags and hunting hat and heads for the train station a few days early. One conflict is Holden deciding how to tell his parents that he was kicked out of Pencey. Another less obvious conflict is Holden dealing with the people around him without getting the urge to blow up a building.
The other type of people that disappoint Holden, are those who are with out respect for anything. The type that only care about what is important to themselves. Ones who would write an obscenity where children play, for self-amusement. Holden doesn’t like these types all, but he keeps his thoughts to himself and remains at peace. Though Holdens negativity and disappointment level is great, he is unknowingly in search of happiness.
However in 2007, Knoxville began pushing a law that would extinguish that question forever. The law to ban smoking inside restaurants and public places shocked many. Businesses became fearful of decreased revenue, knowing that smoking patrons would no longer go to restaurants where smoking was no longer allowed. When the restaurant ban was paired with a rise in cigarette taxes, many citizens became outraged. Maryville resident Bob Pritchard told Knoxville News Sentinel that he “never thought he would feel like a second class citizen for smoking in Tennessee.” When asked his prediction on how the smoking ban would affect the percentage of smokers in Tennessee, he simply responded with “Prohibition didn’t work against alcohol, it won’t work against smoking.” (CITE) Although a lot of actions resulted from the restaurant ban and raised tax rate, much was still to be done.
At the beginning of the story Pelzer talks about the mistreatment that he has eventually grown used to it. For example, Pelzer says “I know better than to stand there and take the hit” (Pelzer 3) Pelzer is abused every moment of his life. In every way possible she has learned to hurt and abuse Pelzer, his son. Even in school, his mother controlled Pelzer’s misery. She made Pelzer wear old and dirty clothes with the purpose to humiliate him, so his classmates could make fun of him.

The bullying of Eric Borges began in kindergarten when many of the other students began to see Eric as different as he didn’t like girls. Eric’s experience progressively got worse as he reached higher education.

We are first introduced to the Ewell’s on Scout’s first day of school when Burris Ewell shocked his teacher Miss. Caroline with his filthy appearance. “He was the filthiest human I had ever seen. His neck was dark gray and the backs of his hands were rusty, and his fingernails were black deep into the quick” (Lee29). The Ewell children never came to school on a regular basis, they only came on the first day so they would not get in trouble with the sheriff.
As the family exited the vehicle the moving truck was already there waiting for the family but Kate couldn’t get off the feeli... ... middle of paper ... ...t’s only adults because if you pay attention enough you will notice are no teens, children, or any form of schooling in this town, which means that people of a younger age are immune to it which is the hypothesis I thought up after meeting you.” Kate was letting this entire situation sink in “so me threatening you showed I wasn’t brainwashed, does that mean that thing was trying to kill me for that reason?” Michael nodded his head “probably, and before you ask they don’t come after me because I don’t sleep, so if you would like you can sleep over at my place and I’ll protect you but we need to work together so we can survive because know that there is two of us I don’t know what the forces we are going up against are to do”. Michael opened his hand and reached it out to Kate, Kate took hold of his hand and shook it “alright, I guess we will be working together now”.
When I went home to connect it to iTunes, I could not do nothing because it was iCloud lock. The next day, I contacted that girl, but she never answered. I just wanted to return it and get my money back. Since that bad experience, I never buy used cellphones because there are a lot of people who are not honest. Another example was when I trade a pair of speakers for a car stereo.
