Because he was 38, because this
was his second job, because
he had two daughters, because his hands
looked like my father's, because at 7
he would walk to the furniture warehouse,
unload trucks 'til 3 AM, because I
was fourteen and training him, because he made
$3.75 an hour, because he had a wife
to look in the face, because
he acted like he respected me,
because he was sick and would not call out
I didn't blink when the water
dropped from his nose
into the onion's perfectly circular
mouth on the Whopper Jr.
I coached him through preparing
I did not blink.
Tell me this didn't happen.
I dare you.
The truth is something that everyone wants to hear and that is very important to some people.
The dude was 38. It was his second job. He had 2 daughters. His hands looked like the hands of the narrator's father. Because he would work at a furniture warehouse from 7 till 3. The narrator was fourteen and training the 38 year old. The dude made $3.75 cents an hour. The dude had a wife. The dude acted like he respected him. The dude was sick and would not tell. He watched the water drop from his nose onto the onions circular middle on the burger. The teen coached him through preparing. The teen watched closely. Don't believe that it didn't happen.
"because his hands
looked like my father's"
It shows imagery of his father and the mood is angry because he is having to train him and he does not like the dude and now he feels like he is working with his father.
"I didn't blink when the water
dropped from his nose"
It shows the imagery of him not blinking when the water was dropping from his nose and on to the onion. And this is creating a serious mood cause he doe snot like what happened.
"onion's perfectly circular
It is saying that the onion has a mouth.
"he would walk to the furniture warehouse,
unload trucks 'til 3 AM, because"
It shows imagery of him walking to the warehouse at night.
Tone- The tone is angry, dark, and hateful. He keeps describing the person and everything wrong with the person and why he does not like him.
