All the men in the bunkroom do not trust Curley’s wife and believe she causes predicaments. I assume this because they say “do not even take a look at that bitch I do not care what she says and what she does I seen ‘em poison before” this is George Speaking telling Lennie to keep way from her. A quote about Curley’s wife cause a predicament is “she gonna make a mess there’s a bad mess about her” this is one of the men speaking to George.
