chador-lover:

Baudelaire describes an incident where a man spends the day walking around Paris with a woman he feels ready to fall in love with. They agree on so many things that by the evening, he is convinced he has found a companion with whose soul his own may unite. Thirsty, they head to a glamorous cafe on the corner of a boulevard, where the man notices the arrival of an impoverished, working class family who have come to gaze through the plate-glass window of the cafe at the elegant guests and gilded decor. The eyes of these poor on-lookers are full of wonder at the display of wealth and beauty inside, and their expression fills the narrator with pity and shame at his privileged position. He turns to look at his beloved in hope of seeing his embarrassment and emotion reflected in her eyes. But the woman with whose soul his own was prepared to unite has a different agenda. She snaps that these wretches with their wide, gaping eyes are unbearable to her, she wonders what on earth they want and demands him to ask the owner to have them moved right away.

Though we are impressed to find so many of our ideals manifested within a person, we cannot help to notice aspects of personality that quietly go against what we expected.
