English is not my mother tongue. So many times I have problems understanding exact meaning of it.
While I was reading Hillbilly Elegy, I found a word quite confusing.
I thought about losing my temper with Mom or Linsay, or Mamaw, and how those were among the few times Papaw ever showed a mean streak, because, as he once told me, "the measure of a man is how he treats the women in his family."
What does those mean? Does it mean Mom, Linsay and Mamaw? Or grandpa losing his temper with them?
