Have you ever talked about someone who you then found out was right behind you? Well that is kind of what happens in A Good Man is Hard to find, but the instead the person they were talking about ends up killing them A Good Man is Hard to Find is a story about a family that goes on a trip. During the ride, the grandmother was being extremely rude and unbearable. The family then stopped to get food at a restaurant, and the grandmother started talking to someone about “the Misfit” getting out of jail. During which, she was being extremely rude.
The grandmother did not know that she was not in Tennessee, and was nagging about going to see an old house from her past. Soon after, she figured out that they were actually in Georgia but did not say anything to her family to result in them getting lost. While trying to find their way, the family was stopped by three men; the men then took each member or two of the family at a time, into the forest and shot them.

She was shocked by her new found information, and then killed while praying.People can learn that you should not talk about others as if you are better then them.

They all were talking about the Misfit, how it is a shame that he was a bad man, and that it to really hard to find a good man. Teens can learn that you never talk about others.
