| 'So careless! Kids these days have no respect for anything,’ he barked. At forty years of age, Steve liked to think that he was old enough to demand respect from everyone. At the same time, however, he never thought to give Mr Griffs the same consideration. |
One of Steve’s famous lines in Never Assume – the first story in The Absurd Tales of Mr Griffs series. In this scene, Sophia, a free-spirited 11-year-old newspaper girl, angers Steve when she lobs his newspaper onto his soggy grass. This aggravates Steve to no end as it means he has to stray off from his clean stone pathway and get his cashmere socks dirty.
In contrast, Mr Griffs is on good terms with Sophia, as he admires her attitude and how she never shies away from telling Steve off. Mr Griffs is also very friendly with her grandmother, Nancy, who is known as the best jam-maker in Cornville.
Nancy and Sophia have long harboured resentment towards Steve. To find out exactly where all this hostility stems from – stay tuned for the upcoming release of Never Assume: Uncut. Never Assume: Uncut includes many other bonus materials, backstories and exclusive interviews with your favourite characters.
