    Characterization of Toby If asked, most people would describe getting a ticket as, for instance a speed ticket; a ticket you got for driving too fast.

Toby responds by expressing himself through body language (Page 37, ‘’Toby put his pad back, nodded. His eyes rolled, looked tortured.’’) Another way for Toby to communicate with people is through the yellow paper slips, the tickets, he hands out. Toby hands out slips to everyone who in his eyes behave wrong, or nearly wrong – even just the slightest. (Page 37, ‘’He printed slowly, meticulously, then handed one of…
