Today, I walked to Starbucks. On the way a homeless guy asked me for change and I lied and said I had no money. On my way back, Strawberry Frappuccino in hand, the same guy recognized me. He followed me for 3 blocks, swearing and yelling at me. FML

you're not obliged to give your money to a bum anyway!

Haha. This happened to me once, just keep on walking and drop a couple of quarters to keep him occupied while you make an escape.

just say u only have a credit card

thats what i thought!

Maybe the bum accepted American express?? Credit card fees may apply. Lol

I offered a homeless man the food I had just bought because he said he needed change to get something to eat. He refused the food. Lol

Just say you used a credit card.. you have no change and you shouldn't be giving out your credit card

why that just encourages them?

I probably would have said I used a credit card XD

damned people should be trying to get a job instead of begging anyway

I understand the need to beg. they understand if you just say no. don't lie when a firm no will do

getting a job is hard enough without being homeless.

Show it anyway

Perhaps it's good you didn't give it to him, he probably wanted to buy beer or drugs or something. He sounds like a creep x(. Maybe a quarter or two would have been nice though.

Lol of course that's what he's gonna do with the money. That's what i'd do. What are u gonna look forward to when ur a bum if u don't get wasted

I lie to them sometimes, but usually I don't have cash on me. Even if I did have the cash, I probably wouldn't give him any money... But how does he know you didn't charge it to a card or something?

You could have just lied and said you bought the drink with credit. I mean, you already did lie once...

Just say " I have no change", don't look at him, just look forward and keep walking. It works for me everytime. Or just completely ignore his existence.

whether it's a homeless person asking for change or a business person complaining at an airport, when people act like the world/other people owe them something it's damn annoying. sucks, FYL

Should have just given him the frappuccino.

#1-you shouldnt run away from a hobo. Your way more powerful in any way than the is.
