Yeah, atleast the homeless guy was trying to actually earn money through hardwork. You dont see much of that anymore, just people holding up a sign begging for money.

I forgot about the FML. All I could think about is that OP's imagery and discriptive skills are excellent and they should consider writing a novel. (Have the homeless guy be your muse.)

I feel like in that situation i'd give him some money, or food, just because he has at least made the effort to earn his way. I have a lot of respect for people that try to make the best of the situation they are in, no matter how grim. Edit: Oh and this is my 1000th comment... do I get a cookie?

Hypothetically, if he lives in Miami, he should keep the scrap metal as a weapon against all the zombies. Furthermore, it would cost more for a face transplant than he could possibly obtain from selling said scrap metal. THEREFORE, by buying his scrap metal you'd be making him unsafe and financially worse off (if he lives in Miami...). How inconsiderate!!!! ;)

Yes, but a homeless man eating another man's face has nothing to do with scrap metal, which makes his comment irrelevant. And if he looked, he would also see that OP lives in the UK.

Drew you're skinny as hell. You remind me of those skinny MySpace kids posting shirtless pictures of them cause they have single digit body fat percentages so they think they're buff. I can hate on you all day...

I feel like people can be a bit unnecessarily mean sometimes on FML. You wouldn't walk up to one of those weirdos who don't wear shirts in public and insult him, so why do it on a site? I think its in everyones best interest that most people on this sure wear clothes, but still. lay off a bit. No need to pile on like a bunch of middle school bullies.

okay, so maybe he is being a little bit of an attention whore. but who cares? everyone always has to be so concerned and offended with what everyone else is doing. I'm annoyed by it, and then I move on. stop wasting your time insulting other people.

Void its ok. Your face is in it at least. Drew you look like an advertisement. No one cares if you show off. But I want to comment ad interact with people. Not your pectoral muscles. It just really annoying. I hope I didn't come off too nasty. But it's true.

I like it when people pick and choose what to complain about. "You can't do that! But you can, because -minuscule fact that makes no real difference-".

He isn't an animal. I see your reference to possible alcoholism, but your comment shows unfair judgment because u dont know him or his past. And judging someone can never make you better than that person.

To 85 - Actually I didn't tell them off. I was just pointing out the fact that judging people will not make a person better than someone else. Your just being ignorant, which doesn't make me mad. Just makes me laugh alittle.

Whoa people no need to get your panties in a knot, I wasn't trying to hurt the homeless mans feelings, because I'm sure he's reading this and sobbing as of right now. From what I've seen, many homeless people put themselves in that situation with addiction and a lack of willpower.

Hatesfate- I'm not afraid to say it; you are an asshole. Yup I'm judging you to be an asshole because you are one. There is a difference between judging someone regarding their position or mistakes in life, and judging someone because they lack humanity and compassion. The world would be a better place without the former.

Yeah my family lives outside of Atlanta, and we come into contact with people asking for money all the time. Eventually, my mother started carrying around packets of snack crackers, dehydrated fruits, peanut butter packets, etc. in her purse. The reason we shied away from giving tons of food is because (at least in Atlanta) there is a fear that the homeless people with a lot of food will get assaulted by other homeless people for it (the food). And we would occasionally buy them meals, depending on how much time we had.

I agree that the best type of thing to do in this kind of situation is to buy them some food. Often times what will happen is if you offer to get them food they will turn you down because what they really want is money which will often end up being spent on alchohol. Nobody's hard earned money should be blown on getting some homeless guy wasted, that's why you should always offer food instead of money.

#33 - He very well could, but he might be trying to turn his life around. Surely if he's trying to sell scarp metal that badly, he's trying. Also OP didn't mention the smell of drink on him, so it's unlikely the hobo is trying to get alcohol.

Reply

Crack is still an option. I'm not saying all homeless people are druggies, but I've given a homeless person money because I felt bad. And I saw him with a 40 ounce a few minutes later. So he had money to buy a 40, but not a hamburger from McDonald's? I'm more comfortable giving them a gently used piece of clothing or a nice, hot hamburger.

Not to mention he was leaning on the door. The first thing I thought of, was that he's intoxicated. Not to say that he wasn't just tired. And smelling of urine means you probably pissed yourself. Even a homeless could just, you know. Farmer piss.

you crazy girl.... you gave him wayyyyyyy too much money if he could buy a 40 with it. be reasonable and generous at the same time. everyone does stupid stuff with a alot of money, but one cannot spend a small amount or even a bit more than that, so that person must save that money.
