Discussion #2

“The Hustlers at Scores” by Jessica Pressler tells us the story of a two master minded women fishing wealthy men by drugging them and maxing out their credit card. By doing this they have made hundred of thousands of dollars. Some cultural belief that was presented in this article was that some times you have to somethings that you don’t want to do. This was literally Rosy who had no one looking after her so she decided to be in the business. She was a smart women who had great potential but the financial issues stopped her.

Pressler gives a lot of background information in this article. She gives background information about every stripper from the group. This helped us readers understand what made them come to the point they came to. Also, gave information about the clients they “scammed”. For example, information such as the amount of money they spend every time they come to the club. Also, what type of jobs they have. Additionally, Pressler tells us how the recession was the reason they started scheming people. The recession left a lot of people unemployed from Wall street which decreased their clients. So to support themselves, they started drugging people and maxing out their credit cards. These background information gives us a better understanding of what made them to such things.

Pressler describes the informant to make them come to life. She put some quotes from the interviews she did with her. Also, describes how she wears designer brands like gucci which is pretty expensive and she had a closet of them. Also, she was messing with the cops in the car after she was arrested. This brings out her personality and how lavish her life style is.

    I like how you mentioned that the author, Pressler purposely mentioned “how the recession was the reason they started scheming people. The recession left a lot of people unemployed from Wall street which decreased their clients. So to support themselves, they started drugging people and maxing out their credit cards. This background information gives us a better understanding of what made them do such things.” I felt like this adds pathos and logos for the strippers to her article on how their scheme started off with some real motive and eventually spiraled out of control.
