In "The Store" by Edward P. Jones, the narrator seems to be an irresponsible, immature, and lazy at first. At the beginning, not even once he bothered thinking about the future. All he cared for was the cigarettes and the beers. He called them "valuables". Since he was living with his mom, he did not have to worry about the shelter and the food. Therefore, he did not bother to look for the new job. His mom did not seem to care about him fooling around jobless as well. Because of that, he did not care when his brother told him to look for a new job. Altogether, he was a waste at the beginning. However, Mr. Jones gave the strong clue about his future success by showing his strong work ethic when he said "Never late, never talked back and always volunteering" (142). With that in mind, there were some incidents as the story progressed, positive and negative that helped him to realize about his future.
