waiter keeps replying back with one word and you just want him to explain it to the older  waiter already but this also shows no emotion in the story. The younger waiter said the  old man “was in despair” about “nothing”. Both waiters are just talking about the old man  and his suicide attempt like it was a sport or they were just having a pleasant chat over  coffee. I feel the old man and older waiter are dealing with despair because neither of  them like going home at night and like staying at the bar. I feel these adjectives best fit  the story because it makes you see that one person is in a hurry all the time  and doesn't care about the people around him while the other person is more  compassionate and lives life more slowly and is open to helping people. And then you  have the old man who is in despair and people know his story but yet nobody steps up  to ask him what’s wrong or if they could help. It’s actually really sad and I feel that this  story reflects the real world and how many people treat each other.  At least one response must be posted by Wednesday, and the second one by Friday. Post a  Peer Response to at least two of your classmates'  responses on the  Discussion Thread by Saturday.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
