    My wife and I hardly ever went to bed at the same time” (Carver 78).

He also seems like a very disrespectful person when he makes jokes about blind people, and gets very offensive when he is jealous of the friend that his wife has with her blind friend, Robert. One problem he has is that he does not confront the depths of his loneliness. Instead, he turns his happiness towards others, attacking people even for their disabilities (as with Robert).…
