The story shows a type of hypocrisy in everyone. We like to think and judge others by how they look or act but often forget that people do that to us. In the story Miss Brill looks at another old woman and silently judges her for it, when she herself is also an old woman. We usually do not see, what we judge on others, on us because we do not like to see ourselves in a negative light. When we judge others i think that it is important to look into a mirror and check if what we judged on others, is something that we also have on us.
