Explain why George and Lennie had to leave their job in Weed…
Lennie wanted to touch a girl’s dress (said it looked soft) but she misunderstood and thought she was being attacked. She sent some men after him, and they tried to lynch him.
Lennie grabbed a girl’s skirt because it looked soft and she screamed because she misunderstood his intentions. This caused other men to come to her aid, driving George and Lennie out of town.
