But no can opener? How delectably evil!

I would probably give them money in exchange for directions to the thieve's guild.


What's up with that

If he was wearing that costume and that sign I'd give him tree fitty!

I dunno, I used to ride the bus through the city, and have seen enough homeless people to know that they are all assholes, so if they bother me about giving them money or cigarettes they should be lucky I don't give them the finger.
If its a situation where I can't avoid them and they ask for a cigarette, I will give them one just to avoid hearing them yell like insane 60-year-old babies.

when I see people with "Money for Beer" or something along those lines I give them money. sure the money is not going towards a better life, but i can't help but just appreciate the honesty.

on the past page, Jade mentioned those that con people out of money. past experience has learned me to never give money to people ever again. it's terrible indeed, but i've been scammed one time too many.

He isn't helping society in any way, and even though I do feel very sorry for him, I'd rather just let him die.

Exactly. People think that it's so easy.

Also forgot to mention that you get questioned for every little tidbit of information, whether it's in regards to what you have, why you're not working, why you bought certain product, and a lot of things that can be demeaning, embarassing, and humiliating. food stamps = not a piece of cake.

And I know everyone has a story, but to be called out for being full of shit really hurts. Especially since this is all true. Not only that, but what is a further kick in the balls is "advice" people give. It's like, you know, "advice" doesn't pay the bills. Even good natured advice can really get under my skin. Because people have these outlandish assumptions about how the system works.

i really hope you find a good solution, soon. i'm rooting for you and your wife. :)

That really taught me something, I wasn't homeless or anything at that point but needed money for a concert and beers. There are very kind and generous people in this world and that lady honestly made me grow a smile on my face. A bit of generosity can go a VERY long way you guys.

Wait, did that woman think you actually needed the money? If so that was kind of a dick move.

I wouldn't give him the money because my city actually has lots of soup houses and homeless shelters and lots of clothes donation places (Vinnies) and stuff like that.

Something would be fishy if he was doing this, he would probably be using the money to buy drugs or liquor which he can't get from the aforementioned places.

That or he could be one of those fake homeless people I'm always hearing about, the ones that pretend to be homeless for money, I absolutely despise them.

I was homeless for about two weeks. It was fun. People just gave me money, but I would never give money to a homeless person. They don't deserve it.

i would just ignore him and tell him to leave me alone if he insists on me giving him money.

some people pretend to be homeless while they are have families and are fully capable of supporting themselves. they just want extra cash. whenever you see a beggar, 90% of the time he isn't really in need of money.


Yeah, I make no sense.

I offer him food, If he asks for money, tell him food or nothing, if he insists on money, tell him to F*** off.

I usually pass because most homeless people don't convince me enough. They would have some items that i couldn't imagine a hobo would have. Infact, i could never figure out, how did they end up homeless? What was there house bombed or something?

I instead (but unfortunately dont) would buy the guy some food. When you hand out straight forward cash, he might waste on just drugs or alcohal which is not going to help you (not saying that alcohal and drugs are bad though).

Well, the sign I had said something like, "Need money, anything helps" - And technically I did need the money to go through with the plans I made for the night. So it wasn't like I put "Broke, starving, travelling, poor, down on my luck." shit like that you know?

But yeah, I don't agree with doing it anymore unless I was really homeless and shit. Things have definitely changed.


Yeah, whatever.
