Haha wouldn't be complaining about getting money either, but might be a little hurt if someone thought I was homeless because of the way I looked and that was their reason for giving me money :P

A lot of homeless people are very rude. My dad said always to have a few bucks on you in case a homeless man gets too aggressive because it's better to give a few bucks than to get stabbed (a homeless man tried attacking him after he denied him money)


That's a terrible idea!
I'd drink the liquor first then pee in the bottle and then pour that out in front of him so that he thinks that your pouring out perfectly good liquor!

Same effect!

Sometimes people suck... I once gave a homeless man $5 (which was everything in my wallet), then he walked away and pulled an iPod out of his pocket...

Anyways, don't let one bad experience dampen your generous nature. Most people do appreciate it. :)

i read a story on reddit about a redditor giving a homeless man his kindle so maybe thats what happened to your homeless guy? that or he was faking.

(dont have a link but you could look it up if you were interested. its very sweet :) )

I read this thing about a homeless guy who did online gaming on his laptop. He stayed in this building where the owner was cool with him being around in it since it was basically a rundown storage building anyway. So he'd essentially go to cafes to play on the free WiFi during the day, then retreat to this secluded building where he could shower in the sink and protect his prized possession.


I realize that there are ways that homeless people come across iPods and such. It was more a slap in the face cuz I couldn't afford one at the time, and that $5 was my meal money for the day... Probably could have clarified better. But yeah, I do realize that doesn't mean he's necessarily swimming in money and I didn't regret doing it. It was just kind of ironic for the situation I guess.

Once I gave a homeless guy $20 he had a sign explaining he was deaf mute, couldn't get work and that's how he became homeless. Later after work I saw that same homeless man talking to someone on the street.
