OH MY GOD someone did a good deed for you and helped you pay for your lunch, and instead of being grateful you think your life is fucked?! haha! wow, just because the man is homeless?! shows how shallow, discriminatory, and ungrateful you are! you deserve to starve you uppity, shameless bitch :)
Yeah - I agree with #48 - that man has next to nothing but is generous enough to give you money for your lunch. I wonder how many times you have walked past a homeless man and given him nothing despite having much more than him? I think this is such a sweet story. I hope you buy him many lunches in the future.
I agree what a shallow thing to say. A kind generous man offered to help you pay for your lunch. He has next to nothing and thought you would have appreciated it instead of some well of person like you shouldnt go hungry. And here you are complaining that a "homeless" man paid for your lunch. Do you see people at the shelter complaining that a rich snob paid for their lunch ? No. They smiled and said thank you.
I agree with 3. Last time I checked, a place to live is more expensive than a lunch. Maybe he can afford lunch (and maybe he's generous enough to help out even when he really couldn't), but can't afford a home. I wish I could meet him. It makes me feel a lot better about people in general knowing that people exist with that kind of generosity.
Yes, its kroner(I still have a 200 bill right on my table after coming back from Norway). A krone is about 1/10 of a GB pound and no one can buy a lunch for 3 NOK neither in Norway, nor anywhere else in Europe, includin UK. But 3 GBP is quite OK price for supermarket lunch in UK (but a bit short for Norway). OP is not so poor as she pretends if she could afford to go to Oslo - one of the most expensive cities in the world :))
Hi everyone, I'm the one who posted this. First of all. Of course I thanked him! and of course I could have gotten a cheaper lunch, I was going to in fact, but he offered, and insisted, so I accepted, and was very thankful. All of you who keep saying I'm a heartless bitch should have considered that I was commenting on the irony of it and that I was embarassed, instead of saying how my life sucked because someone was nice to me. I thought it was a funny story. I got the impression that many of the stories on this site are funny rather than tragic. I could of course have written he gave it to me and i was super thankful etc etc, but I thought that was kind of implied. Oh and about the currency. My lunch was 31 kroner. But as I currently live and study in the UK, i'm used to thinking in pounds and thought that would be easier for the majority of FML readers. But apparently that makes me a fake, sorry guys! And I do in fact give money to charity and homeless people. Not long ago I gave one man my last 8 pounds (this was in the UK), so he could buy a decent meal, figuring I would be OK until I got home 5 hours later. So those of you who got the irony and embarassement, thanks!
