The Relationship Between Susan And George

Decent Essays
One relationship that doesn’t receive a major amount of spotlight is the dynamic between Susan and George. To Susan, George seemed like an honestly nice man who always helped her out when she found herself in jail. “I knew I could count on George” (58), Susan says about George when he would always be the one to bail her out of jail. However, even though to Susan he seems he was always trying to do good, my opinion on his is different. I don’t argue that George is a decent man, one of the few good males in Susan’s life, but I don’t think he is doing well by helping Susan. In a way, even though he is paid to do help Susan, he plays as an enabler in her toxic cycle of crime and jail or in Susan’s words “jumping from the skillet to the frying pan”
