hilarious. YDI, but hilarious. seriously though, i use my debit card for EVERYTHING, so i never have cash on me. lately i've experienced homeless people coming into places where i'm buying food (little caesars and a chinese take-out) and asking for money there (assuming, i suppose, that if i'm buying food i MUST have change left over that they're entitled to). besides that, I live on student loans, which is almost worse than being homeless because i OWE hundreds of thousands of dollars. maybe i should ask THEM for some money.
I used to live in the streets myself so i understand how frustrating it is to be in the situation where you have to ask for change from people to eat...... and to have someone be belligerent to you is very frustrating....... His comment was uncalled for but then again so was yours.....you should have just ignored what he had said as the majority of the time when someone is rude like that , it is out of frustration of being in the situation to begin with, you did not have to give him any money as that is well within your right.... but by responding to his rudeness in kind.... i feel that you deserved getting screamed at.....
A reporter once followed a few beggers then trapping down people who gave them money to see how much they're earning. Apparently, around $20 an hour at good locations. A begger in San Francisco earn around $3k month. (If you can call that "earning" instead of leeching.) I don't give any beggers money for any reason, especially after my friends pulled a "study" in the local mall. We went around asking people for 36 cents to call home. After about three days, we got approximately $300. We donated the money, but it shows you the power of begging.
I applaud your snappy comeback! I bet I'd have said the same thing, I mean, what right does a homeless man have to complain about people having no money to give him?
I heard that homeless people in prime locations can make up to $50,000 a year.
