Arnold comes home after a long working day
he’s looking forward to a good meal. Unfortunately, Justine hasn”t made any dinner yet. Instead of being in the kitchen
she is lying on the bed, playing with the cat. When Arnold asks her why she hasn”t made the dinner, Justine’s reply is very rude and Arnold is not prepared to tolerate that, so he immediately fetches the looped cane to give the poor girl a punishment which should teach her how to behave in future.
