The unnamed narrator is angry over an advertisement he has read in the personals section of his newspaper. The ad reads: "TEACHER seeks pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world. Apply in person" (4).
He explains that his indignation stems from his adolescent desire to find a teacher who could show him how to "save the world."
