Anne was struck by the hurry that everyone was in. People walked fast, and bicycles whizzed by. The people weren't particularly attractive to look at. Worst of all were the dirty, ragged children with running noses that "one wouldn't want to touch with a ten foot pole". She and Margot wondered with they caught them with a fishing pole and washed them up if they would still look the same way the next day. Margot said they would. So early in her confinement, Anne still had the somewhat superior attitude toward others, remarking on how the speech couldn't even be understood. Toward the end of the book, that attitude would change to one of envy for their freedom to be outside.
