Decent guy?

O'Connor, ''The Life You Save May Be Your Own'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

'Mr. Shiftlet stopped just inside the yard and set his box on the ground and tipped his hat to her as if she were not in the least afflicted; then he turned toward the old woman and swung the hat all the way off."

I have to admit that I was really unsure of Mr. Shifltet's motives in this story. I was really expecting him to be like a con man or totally take advantage of this woman and her daughter. I was really surprised to see that he was a decent guy. Although he left Lucynell, I still felt he was a decent guy. He may have been a bit of a hypocrit, but who isn't? What do you guys think about his character? After reading Matt's blog, I see that there is some disagreement about Mr. Shiftlet. I was just wondering what everyone else thought of him!
