Today, a hobo shook me down for money on the street. He's my brother, who incidentally ran away from home over two years ago. FML

Take him home with you!

Your picture pretty much asks what I was about to ask.

I hate the homeless.....................................ness problem that plagues our city.

Califonyonyon super cool to the homeless


Take him home

I hope he at least gave you a family special. he only takes 3/4 of your money.

Ma'boy, you have yee self a hobro there do ya? I don't know why that came out with a pirate voice in my head, but I had to type it that way. Well, anyways, happy leaf erikson day! Hin ga din ga din

Just because he's family doesn't mean OP needs to give him money or bring him home! He may have treated OP and family horribly when he lived at home. He may not be safe for OP to bring home!

I don't think someone who abuses their family would run away. I think someone who is abused (or doesn't feel at home in home) would run away...

So OP, what did you do when you found out it was your brother? We'd all like to know!

Well thats pretty ****** up.....!

Yeah, sad.

Nah that's just good ol' brotherly love.

Family reunion! Party it up!!.. Oh.. Too soon? Sorry. *walks away, awkwardly*

did he remember you? haha

Chances are he did, what with them being siblings and all that.

I'm sorry this is so irrelevant but it's really bugging me so im going to tell you. Nirvana is one of my favorite bands as well, but that quote from Kurts suicide note in your picture isn't his own quote, it's David Bowie. Thought you should know so you don't misquote him. Apologies!

32 is wrong as well, Neil Young wrote that lyric as part of "My My Hey Hey" on his Rust Never Sleeps album.

..... Who cares?

31, his Love, Courtney quoted him in one of her songs with Hole. it's great to be a really dedicated fan, but doesn't give you the right to go around treating others as if they are inferior to your own (perceived) status as a fan. a LOT of poems/lyrics have used that line - including cobain himself. I dedicated a track mark to him everyday! doesn't mean I give kids wearing the T-shirts from hot topic grief.

not to be a troll, I sweat, but reading My comment after sleeping it does look stupid. please disregard it. all of us are assholes at 5;00 am. xD

Aw, will he let you bring him home to work things out?

Take him home!

Coax him with candy like off family guy. "Oooh a piece of candy..ooh a piece of candy... Oooh a pice of candy."

Ooh piece of candy, ooh piece of candy, ooh piece of candy!

28: That was his joke. -.-

You know.... Family guy??

37- yes, that was also part of my joke....


U do no u just copied the one before u right?

Could you bring him home and try to help him out money wise? If he's desperate enough to stop people and rob/ask for money i'm sure anything you could do to help him woukd be taken gladly.

you look like gibby from iCarly.

43, nobody cares.

I do! Gibby and his shirtless endeavours are amusing.

#8 - not necessarily.. If he obviously left for a good reason, and some times it's better on the streets begging, than staying at home for what ever reason.

sounds like she's doing ok, maybe her brother had some problems

Quick question why are you guys talking about icarly now??? And FYI yes he does look more like Freddy than Gibby just sayin

olpally 32

be glad he's alive op... :) i know i'd take him home if i were you... family is family... don't turn your back on him

I don't think OP's brother one day thought to himself, "Y'know, I think I'm gonna run away today." There isn't enough information provided in this FML to tell us more about OP's life, but you never know the reason why he ran away. Maybe he was trying to escape from someone/somebody was after him and he had no choice but to leave? I wouldn't recommend bringing him back home, but I think OP should at least take him somewhere safe so he can get the help he needs! :')

olpally 32

very well said, not enough information, but your theory is most likely accurate... i wish we had more information about it.

CaramelMacchiato 13

Same, dude. It'd be cool to see follow-ups and stuff :D

well, since he is your brother maybe give him some money and try to coax him back home. if he's a lost cause just give him the money

Weird conversation: " give me your mon!...oh hey sis, how you been?"

Well that would be quite awkward

KingCeltic77 18

Let him take your money. No matter what he's still your brother.

CaramelMacchiato 13

"Let him take your money." Erm, no, stealing is still stealing no matter who you are.

She Should offer him help instead

Wouldnt want to help my sis/ bro if they robbed me instead of reaching out to me..

Exactly like 20 said stealing us stealing even if it's op's bro!! But op could have reached out and offered to help.

Most street people need psychological help to function in society.

I totally agree. And maybe offer him a place to stay. Family is forever.
