A&P By John Updike
" Policy is actually the kingpins want. What others want is teen delinquency. "
Throughout the brief story " A& P" by Steve Updike, edgy behavior is certainly one of the key elements. I not only saw rebellion but a big change in the sights of people and maturing in the main character Sammy. The clashing of the young and old ways of life is evident coming from clothing towards the normal flow of people inside the grocery store isles. Three young girls show Sammy a point of view by the end of this story about the world that this individual didn't also know he previously.

Therefore use to generally there old routine that they all seem to movement in the same direction down the isles 1 by 1 even though he admits that it's " not like we certainly have one-way indicators or anything" they merely seem to be worried to change how things are often. Unlike these kinds of three girls who made a decision to not only walk in the opposite course of everyone otherwise but to maneuver slowly deciphering each space, obviously savoring the attention, and avoiding eye-to-eye contact.
These ladies are savoring this silent attention from Sammy and anyone else seeing up until the manager of A& P Legal makes his approach over to them to tell them that " this is not the beach", their clothing is not really appropriate in the store, and the next time they come in they should be respectable....
