When Alexander's dad gets his shirt sleeves caught on fire, no one in the entire packed restaurant offered to help or showed any sign of alarm, only his family. Everyone else sat back and stared. Realistically, there would be reactions and an employee at the restaurant would be held liable to getting a fire extinguisher. There also was no emotion when the situation was handled by the dad finally soaking his arms in the fish tank. The people had no morals or concern if Alexander's dad was okay. They acted as if there wasn't anything to worry about.
