1. Describe Sammy: what kind of person does he appear to be based on his observations about the store, its customers, the girls, Stokesie (his co-worker), Lengel, and/or his town. In what ways might he fit some stereotypical notions about young men, and in what ways might he not fit those ideas? 2. Why does Sammy quit his job? Keep in mind that he goes through with it even though he seems aware the girls aren’t going to be impressed. What might this say about his character? 3. Identify examples of conformity or routine in the story. What is Sammy’s attitude toward these behaviors? 4. What do you make of Sammy’s comments about the three girls and/or other women in the story? 5. Many readers identify this story as a “bildungsroman”–a fancy German word referring to a “coming-of age” story, one in which the protagonist (main character) gains experience and moves toward adulthood. Do you agree? How might this story fit that definition?
