Went to Walmart tonight and saw a homeless man with a big winter coat on - His umbrella was blown inside out and he was huddled in a ball trying to keep the rain off him. I saw a woman stop and give him money and I decided to go to the Mickey D's and get him a Big Mac and Frosty. Handed it to him and he asked if it was chicken nuggets. "I wanted chicken nuggets". I gave him the bag and walked away.Pardon my butt all over the place for trying to help a starving , wet, cold, person...I guess I'd better stop while I'm ahead...Do I have more stories to tell??? You bet! I'll save them for another day...

Bea
I think the guy was off his meds - so many like that wandering the streets. I don't like giving money because they will usually buy drugs and/or alcohol and I feel like an enabler.
In this day and age my son and I (By the Grace of God)are keeping our heads above water. We eat beans and rice a lot - I would have been thankful if someone offered me a Big Mac...

parrot's charitable deed
odd comment lead in huh?

Well, here's what happened ... I was a participant in a charity golf tournament [I can't play] which involved coming in costume. My quartet had decided to dress as pirates and I chose to be the token parrot. I knit my costume out of eyelash yarn and mohair and used a feather duster as a tail and shredded orange garbage bags as wings .. I'd taken the trouble to get those chocolate coins and put them in a sack and handed them out as 'booty' [the other booty] to anyone I came in contact with around the golf course ...

anyhow .. when it came to the wrap up dinner at the Waldorf .. [which is a tatty bar in a seedier section of town] I was asked to come in costume so all of the players could see it. No problem for me except I got goosed by the feather duster tail when I tried to get into my truck without taking precautions ...

so .. me and my pal were walking from the parking lot into the hotel .. him in his pirate gear and me as his trusty parrot .. and this inebriated scruffy looking fellow approaches me and asks if I might have any spare change .. without hesitation I said "Of Course!" and with a flourish presented him with my last two doubloons ....

You know what he said? "Why thank you!" to which I replied .. "you are most welcome."

My pal was shocked at my cheek but I don't know why .. he's known me for years ...

ps - we won the best costume prize ... and one of the drunker members of our tournament told me I reminded him of his parakeet..

Entitlement is
Beggers can't be choosers. I'm with you on giving these guys food or non-alcoholic drink. Loved Bea's story though.

Hi Kitty
where you been?

Late in comment here, been really busy lately. So, yeah we've probably all met those "needy" people who just want a gimme.

One I met, a drunk lady walks up to me while I'm filling my car with gasoline, she's smoking a cigarette and says she has a kid in college, and now in hospital, she needs 50 dollars for cab fare.....blah blah

One guy sees me washing my truck at a self serve car wash, says for 5 dollars he'll wash it for me....but I have to put the 5 dollars worth of quarters in the slots.....take a hike buddy.

One guys sees me coming out of a pharmacy, asks me for 5 dollars for his meds. I asked him what kind of wine he preferes, he says "no really, I need medicine".....take a hike buddy.

One guy comes up to me as I pull into a self serve filling station, say's "I hate to bother you, but I'm really down on my luck lately, and it embarrases me to even ask, but would you allow me to wash your windows and check your oil and tires? If I can do something useful for somenone it gives me a better feeling about myself." Great hook. I gave him a few dollars and offered him a tire gauge, and popped the hood. He was so eager to do this miminal work, didn't even ask for money, and when I paid him he said "this is great, I promise this will be used wisely. I know you work hard for it."

So, it goes to show if you work at anything the right way you will suceed. I bet he is a successful street beggar...for lack of better words.

Interesting Brian
Hey Brian, Nice to see a comment from you...That guy you met must have gone to Panhandler College...I saw a guy on a talk show once who actually gave classes on that very subject...A couple of his students made $180,000 a year...and that was back in the 80s...
