Let me just explain this to you because this is actually hilarious.
- Pumblechook is a character in Great Expectations.
- He did treat Pip as an equal - and maybe higher- for some time while he was a gentleman. Though, when Pip returns to his home town at the end of the book, Pumblechook begins to treat him as a lesser again. He thought that because Pip had “lost his fortune” and was no longer worthy of his respect. [x]
Great Expectations, guys. It’s completely hilarious.
