…May I ask why…{Qoute}

“…May I ask why you gentlemen prefer to lounge away your leisure hours in a room which is chiefly furnished, as far as I can see, with scrubbing brushes. And when the human race has progressed to a stage where seventeen thousand chairs are manufactured every day except Sunday…”
May Day by F. Scott Fitzgerald

This is quote is from Fitzgerald’s May Day, another one of his short stories which I finished reading. I found this point of the story very interesting as there is an obvious social divide between Peter Himmel and the two ‘driftwood’ soldiers he is addressing, Keys and Rose.
