Virtuous Herbie

Related:

Herbie has many virtues. He has a strong sense of honor, a respect for authority, and he is empathetic, loyal, patriotic, generous, modest, and even chivalrous. And from his efforts to cope with his dad's ideas, it's clear that he's loyal to his parents, for which he is rewarded by being called a little fat nothing.

Index terms: virtue, honor, honest, keeps his work, empathetic, patriotic, generous, unselfish, modest, chivalrous, loyal, helpful, responsible, respectful, Richard E. Hughes, Ogden Whitney

Herbie helps, but for nothing. Oh well... I didn't have anything else to do anyway!
