He is confined to his room and his only outlet to the world is his bedroom door. He “[watches] it closely for an hour or two” (Kafka 38) before it’s opened every evening. Even though Gregor is allotted to come in contact with the outside world only a few times per day, his family captivates his attention all the ti... ... middle of paper ... ...o care for them. The Samsas are a family that pride themselves on appearances. Gregor no longer fits into their plans, so they treated him with as much disdain as possible.
The only thing he played on his computer was a game called Empire Earth 2. It had a very small community of players in which he knew most of them. Later that day Jane came into the room and said “It’s ok if you want to no go to school tomorrow.” Keith already had a bad habit of missing school because he thought it was boring, so he decided to stay home so he could play his game more. Keith did think that it was bad staying home for that reason, but nobody could stop him so he did it. Keith’s step father was the stricter of the two parents.
It seemed like the only time his parents ever really even looked at him was when he was doing something wrong. It always kind've bothered him --- in the vague way everything his parents did kind've bothered him --- but for once Butters was glad they were so negligent. It was his turn to do this dishes after dinner, and Butters made sure to take his time with it so that he didn't break a plate (two weeks grounded) forget to rearrange the silverware (three weeks grounded) or leave the pantry open (four weeks grounded). Linda and Stephen were sitting in front of the living room TV when he poked his head in, shyly rubbing his knuckles. "I-I'm all done," Butters announced, "H-heading' to bed now.
There are many situations in anyone's life that justice does not prevail. My brother once had to watch the dog. My parents wanted me to supervise him, but I was busy. My brother then decides to sit on the couch, and watches television. It annoyed me that he was just lounging around and doing nothing.
We quickly ran out of things to talk about. There was always hardly anything to say to my dad, once school talk was over; every other conversation was pretty much done with too. I decided to stay with him in his room to watch TV waiting on dinner; my little brother who was four years old at the time later came to join us, he was probably tired of watching cartoons in the living room, or perhaps lonely. I’m guessing lonely. Ten minutes later, my mother calls us for dinner.
Al loves to watch TV, bowl with his buddies, drink and go to the "nudy bar". Marcie and Jefferson, are the Bundy's neighbors and also take an active part in the show. Most shows consist of Al going somewhere or doing something and everyone else making fun of him when he fails miserably. Al is someone you can hardly call a father to his kids, he's doesn't take care of them and he does absolutely nothing father-like for them or with them. Al is constantly complaining about his marriage, he says that if he was sober that night, none of this would have happened.
He runs around the house yelling, jumps on his parents bed, eats junk food, watches movies he isn’t typically allowed to watch, goes through his older brothers room, and uses his father’s shower products. I too, and many other kids, knew the feeling of excitement that Kevin was feeling. Even though at times it was scary being by myself and hearing weird noises, I would take advantage of the exciting thrill of being left home alone. From eating someone else’s candy, stealing my mother’s makeup, and watching a Tv show i wasn’t allowed to watch, being home alone was such a thrill when I was younger. There were no boundaries in my little mind, and I would feel so happily deceitful doing things I typically couldn’t in those days.
That 's why Tom gets little sleep and stays out all night drinking and going to the movies. Tom just wants to have fun and not have ties to other people. The Glass Menagerie was a great interpretation of Tennessee William 's early life. It showed how hard he had it being raised by a single mother and having a sister with a handicap. In the story it shows
Thinking it was nothing serious, I refused to go, for I was too comfortable in my parent’s bed watching TV. I had known Alan for a year or more now, and he was the nicest man I have ever met. Thinking it thoroughly, I decided to go; he would have done the same thing in my position. The hospital was very far away, and sometime throughout the drive I regretted going, thinking I had come such a long way for just a broken wrist, or that maybe I would be the youngest person and that would have been very awkward. The night was very dark and cold.
In short order I find myself doing time behind the netted walls of my play penitentiary, my senses still reeling from the heady intoxication of a job well done. Let Mom and Dad tromp back to their game. Once I bust out of the stir, no get-together in town will be safe from my naked abandon. Whatever happened to the carefree days when we were young and didn't care what other people thought of us? When I was a little kid I wore absurdly generic clothes, shed them whenever my parents had company, scratched myself whenever I had an itch, and generally worked all manner of tomfoolery without any care as to what others would think.
