He did not say hi or how are you he just said " I'm hungry fix me something to eat" Anna did not like the tone of his voice so she told him he could wait. That night at dinner Joseph was making rude comments about the war to Rudi. Ingrid's dog Sasha was not happy about that so she attacked Joseph Rudi held Sasha back saving Joseph's life. That scared Joseph so he went to sleep in the barn that night.
