Jeanette's mom (Rosemary) was in a huge depression and she left the house leaving $200 for her children to live for 2 months. Jeanette had to use the money smartly so she planned what to use for. However, her dad (Rex) asks her for the money to buy his own stuff where she only owns $200 to survive with her siblings. She got very mad but she couldn't reject it so she gave him some with the promise to giver her the money back. One day her dad brings her to a bar and she gets attacked by a man, Robbie that she meets there. She was so scared and escaped at the end. When she tells her dad (Rex) about it, she was expecting that her dad would punch him until Robbie is nearly dead. Instead, her dad seemed calm and said I knew you can handle it by yourself.
"Goddammit, since when do I have o explain myself to my children?"(Walls 210).
