He (the lawyer) is disturbed by the answers Meursault gives in response to questions about his feelings at Maman's funeral. Meursault refuses to say that he had repressed natural feelings of sadness because it is not true. Although those details have little to do with the present case, the lawyer it explains it will come up in court. He leaves angrily and Meursault wishes he could tell him that he is just like everyone else but is too lazy to stop him. Meursault is not a sensitive figure in the traditional sense. I wouldn't call him unfeeling rather than complex, even aloof, in the ways we are conditioned to be sentimental.
