"A study in unconscious cruelty".
It translates into the unwittingly heartless detachment of certain family members as they discuss a local boy's suicide.
They fail to notice the effect their conversation is having on Billie Joe's girlfriend sitting at the table.
Reminds me of when I was in high school. A math teacher named Mr. Little came over to my desk and looked at my failed exam paper.
Mr. Little shook his head and stared at the "F" he gave me. Told me, in front of the class, I was too stupid to ever be in his enriched
The classroom was quiet. Nobody said nothing. I felt like two feet tall. (ironically "Little")
