Gene’s case is especially complicated because the economic class he finds himself in at the time of the remark differs from the economic class in which he was raised. Thus, when considering his situation, it is important to factor in not only his current financial situation, but his previous one and how that might affect his response. If I only considered his current social class, I might expect Gene to feel upset by the situation, but having already been jaded before the remark was made. Possibly, he could have been desensitized to comments such as these had he been raised in a trailer park. However, because he was raised in an upper middle class household, he might be somewhat shocked to hear a comment like this, or feel as though he did not truly belong there. It is also possible that because Gene grew up in an upper middle class household, he was taught to act more politely toward others, even when faced with an affront. If he had been taught this way, then Gene might have shown reserve in reacting, meaning that he would not have gotten upset at the driver or chosen to yell something back at him.
