However, she is quite quick in observing the abnormality of Griffin’s behavior. She is quite meticulous with the keeping of her inn. She provides satisfactory services to her customers. When Griffin spoils the fender, walls, and the floor in the room, she points it to him. She is a woman of ethics and right behavior. She does not like Griffin’s mysterious disappearance from the room one morning. She does not like the abnormal behavior of the furniture in Griffin’s room. When she becomes suspicious of his connection with the burglary at the Vicarage, she becomes quite strict with Griffin. She insists on him to clear all his pending bills. She stops serving him his meals and other services; when Griffin gives some money to pacify her, she wants to know from him where he got the money from.
