Blog #4: Trustworthiness and thankful

In the story “The Devil and Tom Walker” there is trustworthiness and thankfulness depending in which character we are talking about. For example Tom is someone in which people trust because of his job, but he is not trustworthy because he is a very selfish person and only cares on gaining money. Tom is not a thankful character because he does not value what he have. He has a wife, a good job, and money. Tom is not trustworthy because on the story, at the end, he does not want to keep his deal with the devil because he is scared, this is why he becomes a religious sadic. I believe the devil is trustworthy because the devil always kept his word on what he said. For example the devil in the bargain with Tom said he would make him richer and so he did. Tom’s wife is not trustworthy because she tried to make the deal with the devil by herself and this is why the devil killed her. Tom´s wife is not thankful because she is as miserable as Tom, with this detail from the story we know she is not happy with her life and she just want more tan what she have. Another reason why Tom and Tom´s wife are not trustworthy is because they do not trust each other and a huge part of a marriage is trust. I believe there is trustworthiness on Tom’s friends because they are thinking the best about Tom, not realizing Tom is leading them to bankruptcy, because they think the best of Tom they are thankful to him. In my opinión this story shows this values and satirizes them, for example, as we read we would suppose Tom and Tom´s wife trust and love each other because they are marriage but is not like that so we do not see trustworthiness and they do not value each other so they are not thankful. Another thing on the story is that shows how people that are always selfish will end alone just as Tom did.
