Poor People Slam Doors

Ok, that may be a broad generalization and might offend the vast majority, but hear me out.

Today I drove a coworker home, because he didn't have a ride and he doesn't have a car. Upon arival at his home, he thanked me, exited the vehicle and proceeded to slam my car door with extreme force. At that moment I remembered that he slams the door every time I drive him home.

Growing up, my family struggled financially and therefore had two beater cars that you had to slam the doors to close them. This coworker is around 17 years old and has 5 brothers and sisters all living in a small, rundown house.

So, what does this mean? Nothing, just an observation.

(Spoiler Alert: if you don't want to know what happens in Les Mis, go watch the movie before you read this)

Les Miserables (2012) is one of my favorites. The songs are awesome...It makes me cry, but there's also humor...it's just a solid movie. The story of Les Mis is full of grace and redemption, despite the pain and struggle of the characters. You see a tension between grace and judgement playing out through the relationship of Jean Valjean and Javert. These two men have a different way of seeing people.
