Eddie has just graduated from high school and looks for a job every day at the State Employment Office. He wants to support his girlfriend--Jeanie-- his son --Little Eddie-- and his Mama.
After he doesn’t find a job he thinks very hard about robbing a store. His friend Pedro even gave him a gun. Eddie has his doubts about robbing and he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He decides he is going to rob the tailor shop.
When Eddie gets close to the shop he starts to get nervous. He goes into the store and tries to talk to the store owner like its a normal day.
Eddie stopped and thought for a moment. The store owner started to notice something, knew that she was being robbed, and started to cry.
Eddie ran as his nerves ate away at him. He didn’t know if the lady would call the police or not. Eddie ran to safety at Pedro's house and returned the gun. Then he headed to Jeanie's house
Eddie ended up being yelled at for missing his sons birthday party when he got to Jeanie's house. After the was yelled at he sat and hugged Jeanie as he cried(since he wasn't there for Jeanie and Little Eddie). Then Little Eddie started to hit him and Eddie knows that he deserves it.
