The first thing that struck me is that the relationship is no regular/ordinar­y relationship. Lennie is not acting like a grown-up, which gives George a huge responsibility and he has to provide for him. George gives Lennie advices and instructions, but as bad as memory Lennie has, he keep forgetting them. There are other reasons to their relationship not being a normal one.
