Today, I saw a homeless man asking for money for food. Not wanting to give him money so he'd spend it on booze, I decided to buy him a full big mac meal from McDonalds. When I went to hand it to him, he quickly waved his hand, denying it saying, "Thanks but I'm a vegetarian". FML
Perhaps he is a vegetarian? Eh.
The only comment I was going to make was on the reference to not wanting him to go buy booze with the money they would have given them. Why do we feel that with the homeless we can decide what they spend money on. If you GIVE them money, they can choose to do whatever they want with it. Even if it is to buy a pint of whiskey. Nine times out of ten your couple of bucks isn't going to change their situation much anyway. Let them get hammered if they like. They're adults.
If you feel the need to dictate what they should do with your money after you 'give' it to them, then just keep it to yourself.
Only time I bought a beggar food he turned it down as well. Took my drink though.
Confuses the fuck out of me...
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
