Thank You M'am is about a woman who encounters a teenage boy who tries to steal her purse. She catches him and takes him home with her. She feeds him and cleans him up and tells him he does not have to steal to get things he wants.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive people and give them a second chance.
The street she almost got robbed at.
"And your face is dirty, I got a great mind to wash your face. Aint you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face?" "You ought to be my son I would teach you right from wrong"
Thank You Ma'm
Text that helps support the theme with Ms. Jones is "Well, you didn't have to snatch my purse to to get some suede shoes you could have asked me"
Some text evidence revealing the theme is "But you put yourself in contact with me. Said the woman. If you think that contact is not gonna last a while you got another thing coming at you."
"If someone is gracious enough to give me a second chance, I wont need a third!"
Roger tried to steal the Ms. Jones's purse.
This setting helped reveal the theme because that is where he tried to steal her purse and she decided to help him and felt sympathy towards him which led him to learn his lesson.
We think that the conflict revealed more about the theme. We think this because the conflict is what led Ms. Jones to forgiving him in the beginning and the theme is based around the fact that she forgave him after he tried to steal.
She helped support the theme because she was the one that forgave Roger and gave him food and money and she was the one that gave him a second chance.
The conflict helped support the theme because if the boy didn't try to steal he wouldn't have gotten a second chance from her and if it was someone else he probably would have gotten in trouble instead of getting help
