The remark he made shows that he believed his parents could buy his respect. The remark illustrated that he would decline any offer his parents made to him. Krakauer lets the audience witness the hatred and rebellion McCandless exhibited towards his parents. In addition, he uses an epigraph to highlight why he despised his parents and allow the audience view things from McCandless’ perspective. The epigraph states “I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, an obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board” (Krakauer 117).
His first reaction to see his dinner will take a while to make is to become the abusive father Joyce witnesses typically in Dublin. Eveline’s father shows how unemployed fathers were in Dublin. Her father relied on Eveline completely for his food as well as money to buy more alcohol. His influence of Eveline’s typical daily routine made Eveline into an emotionless robot who most likely continued her days of maintaining the house she lives in with her abusive father. James Joyce reveals to the readers that the fathers he witnesses in Dublin during 1904 were most likely abusive is
It’s just food.” “Dad, you wouldn’t understand” Dave said as he rolled his eyes and scrolled through the Facebook feed. His mother annoyed, stood behind him and took the tablet out of his hands so he could begin eating. “MOM!” he said, irritated. His mother, ignored him and put the table in a drawer. “Eat, or you’ll be late for your first day of school” said his mother.
The other boys were talking about things-the big scoreboard on one wall, the food, the bigger kids. Ender could only watch in isolation” (Card 32). This use of imagery by Card clearly portrays how Ender is isolated from his family and loved ones. The imagery of isolation and the fear of the bigger kids displays how the fleet puts Ender in a situation where his social life and emotional state of mind is ignored. Since Ender is isolated and given little empathy, the establishment of a strong, collaborative society is compromised.
When Pi is talking to the two reporters’ one of them says “He’s already had plenty and most he hasn’t eaten. They’re right there beneath his bed sheet” [Martel, chapter 98], the reporters realize that Pi is hoarding the cookies and think he’s crazy, but he’s only doing that because he’s only traumatized from the catastrophe and since he was limited on food in the boat; stashing food is purely a habit for him now. The experience traumatized him so much that he continues to do what he did on the boat on land too and that’s not a happy ending for him because he wants to leaves that experience in the past but brings it with him everyone he

Malachy didn't bring home the wages like a good husband but he would leave his family waiting at home for their supper whilst he went down to the pubs and drank all the money. At time like these, Frank could see his mother was angry and upset and he hated his father when he did that to her. Malachy came home drunk so many times, Frank and his brothers knew exactly what was going on when he didn't come home at dinner time, they knew not to talk to him because he'd done the 'bad thing'. Frank constantly says that as he is the eldest son, he wanted to bring home the money his father never did and a number of times he thinks to himself that he wished he had a different dad. When Oliver dies, Frank gets very angry at his father for putti... ... middle of paper ... ...ound him.
Seriously, people have become so selfish by not inundating the world with their mindless saturations about how they just found out that they were adopted by Bavarian gypsies, or how they forgot to tell everyone that R. Kelly was trapped in THEIR closet, which therefore creates a society uninformed about the uninteresting and totally predictable things people have done, are about to do or will be doing soon. 'I'm taking the bus now' ' I'm having lunch now'. 'I think I need to go on a diet.' 'I have to poop now.' ‘Goodnight world.’ Pathetic people have become a huge problem for our society because they have not continued to update me, and the rest of the world, about their obviously fantastic life.

Now many friendships form through the internet and these friendships are not genuine. When these “friends” meet in person, they find nothing to talk about. For example, I remember after watching Perks of being a Wallflower, a movie taking place in the early nineties, my friends and I discussed how all the characters communicated in person and during hanging out they played games and talked. Now... ... middle of paper ... ... but the personal relationships they could form at home or at work are ruined because of the surplus hours individuals spend with their electronics. Computers, TVs, and various other electronics not only hold the capacity to destroy humanity, but already began to extinguish it.
