A Good Man is Hard to Find
I firmly believe that people reap what they sew. In the story, “ A Good Man Is Hard to Find,” the grand mother is a prime example of this scenario. Her pathetic ploys and acts of deviance cause harm to the family throughout the story and it ends up coming back to her in the end. You can tell that harms is inevitable for the family by some of the clues that are found in the grandmother’s

When her son Bailey was driving down the road, she persistently reminded him of the speed limit. “ The speed limit was fifty-five miles an hour and the patrol man hide behind the billboards and small clumps of trees and they will speed out after you before you get a chance to slow down,” the grandmother replied. I hate when someone tries to tell me how to drive. She should have been grateful instead of hateful because the family didn’t have to drag her along if they didn’t want to. I know that Bailey is her some, but why does she constantly aggravate him? My mother picks on me occasionally but never to the extent of the grandmother.
The grandmother was a very dishonest person. She began telling little John
Wesley ( her grandson), about a plantation she used to visit. She pointed to an old grave yard visible to the road. The more she thought about it the more she...
