Mae changes differently in the story like when the chef was mixing the potato salad said to give it to him and she looked at the truck drives as to tell them what she needed to do next. Another example is when the man asked her for penny candy which might have been more expensive than that she offered to give them 2 for a penny because she didn’t want the man to disappoint his two sons who were eager to taste candy. With this type of humility the man is able to accomplish to get food for his family and not rip-off someone in the process. What I believe about humility is that you need self-esteem and that humility is from a deep confidence in who you are, and what you are capable of and it also requires the courage to stand back when you could stand out.
He buys a turkey bigger than Bob Cratchit's son and sends it to him, and instead of being rude to the Poulterer, he pays for a cab to get them to Cratchit's home. He then goes out with joy in his heart and bumps into a man who asked him to donate money to the poor the day before. As opposed to being unkind and cruel, the new and improved Scrooge donates a large sum of money to the cause happily. This kind, happy, and generous man is a complete change from the stingy and unkind Scrooge from Christmas Eve. If someone this awful can change, anyone and everyone can do the same.
He says that Christmas is a waste of time and even tries to get Bob Cratchit to work on Christmas. Scrooge does not tell him that he has to work extra hours to make up for the lost time but makes it appear as if he is granting him time off because he is considerate that Bob wanted to spend time with his family. He does not like to accept that he has to pay Bob Cratchit for not being present at work on Christmas Day. Every time someone tells Scrooge, “Merry Christmas!” he says, “Bah humbug” and rejects the greeting. He also gets upset when his nephew, Fred, comes to visit and wishes him a merry Christmas.
My grandma was very proud of my brother for his honesty. Even so my cousin could do something bad to him, my brother told my grandma about the money. My brother is also generous with other people, people who he never had meet or know. Sometimes it can be hard to not make a lie, but as my brother always says, “a little and innocent lie can make a lot of trouble, when this little lie get bigger.” I remember a story about my brother that my grandma told me. When my grandma and my brother were on the grocery store, and he was fourteen years old.
He asked the boy if the giant turkey owned by the poulter wasn’t bought yet. The boy had said no. Scrooge said “Go Buy it I’m an earnest. Comeback and I will give you a shilling, come back in under five minutes and I will give you half a crown. Scrooge intended on giving it to the Cratchits who needed it so badly.
He had just turned 14 a couple days ago and received a piping bag filled with frosting for his birthday. The day continued just the same, except he was now obliged to practice frosting with his new bag, not that he ever paid attention. He puts the bag down to take a break and his dad yells at him but he doesn’t seem to care, his dad says “ if you’re not going to respect and use the gifts you get for your birthday you’re not going to get any at all”. Issac just whimpers “that’s fine with me”. He goes to his room and begins packing a small bag; that night he leaves... ... middle of paper ... ...wn to her husband, takes his hand, and as Issac and his father say there apologies, when suddenly Haydien is about to have the baby, Maryann comes to the door, And tells her to come inside that she’s a nurse, so despite the relenting they wanted to do, it was the only choice.
His mother was forced to work during World War II, she worked at a mill doing riveting work, later she worked at Bell Telephone. They were a very loving family, but work came first, this left very little time for their kids. My grandfather being the oldest son, was expected to help out more, one time when he was about twelve years old, his mom told him “Bobby, go to the store, and get me some bread” he said “OK.” Even though he did not want to go get it, he did it anyway, but as he went to get the bread, he became angry that he had to go get it, so when he got back to the house he had thrown the bread onto the roof of the house. This story has great meaning to me, because it was very rare that he would act out this extreme, espec... ... middle of paper ... ...al use, instead of saving it for the soldiers who needed it. He would also tell me stories about how he and his friends would acquire food, by eating dog, tree bark, and broken up watermelon.
After the boy has taken off to buy the turkey, Scrooge says, “ I’ll send it to Bob Cratchit’s! He shan’t know who sends it. It’s twice the size of Tiny Tim. Joe Miller never made such a joke as sending it Bob’s will be!” That day, Scrooge is nice and happy to everyone he sees on his way to church. Based on what the text says, Scrooge arrives at his nephew's home after church.
Along came a frontage road was a story that told different relationships between three different fathers and their sons. The first father that Michael Chabon introduced to the story was Nicky’s grandfather. The portrayal of his Nicky’s grandfather painted him as a lukewarm person who seemed to bond with his son only when they shopped for pumpkins. I came to this conclusion because it seems like Nicky’s father is following in his father’s footsteps by annually taking his son pumpkin hunting. Michael Chabon gave the description that Nicky’s grandfather wasn’t such a loving person.
Scrooge, pretending to be disgusted, starts telling Bob off, until he sprung his plans to give Cratchit a pay rise and help out his struggling family. Bob is very surprised, but Scrooge promises that he is telling the truth. Over time, Scrooge helps the Cratchits out and becomes like a second father to Tiny Tim who doesn’t end up dying like the ghost predicted. People are confused by Scrooge's sudden change in behavior, but he just goes on without any regard to it. The narrator closes the story with a final, impressionable statement, "and so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, Every one!"
