Hazel Tells Laverne
I would describe Hazel as probably being a lower class uneducated female. I would have to take a guess that she is uneducated because of the way that she talks and the fact that she is cleaning out a Howard Johnsons restroom.

It shows that they assume the worst in thinking that they only want one thing out of them. Sex. I think that if Hazel had used punctuation or even took her time to formulate her ideas into a more flowing and structured...
