Answers 1Add Yours
1) George explains to the stern boss the situation with the bus and the long walk, claiming it as the reason for their tardiness- the long walk was true, the reason for their tardiness? A lie
2) "He's my. . . cousin. I told his old lady I'd take care of him. He got kicked in the head by a horse when he was a kid" (25). -- George is not Lennie's cousin
3) George tells the boss they left their last job because it was done-- they left because Lennie was accused of rape; they didn't just leave.......... they RAN !
