    ...or was I condescending? :umm:

    I think it was a good thing.
    Maybe.

    I had four grocery store paper bags full of bottles (no they were not all liquor) I'd be collecting.
    I drove them down to the recycling center this morning.
    A few blocks away I saw a guy pushing a shopping cart full of cans on the side of the road.
    I pulled over and gave my bottles to him instead.
    No English was spoken but I think my good will came across.
    We shook hands and then I went on my way.
    Or did I just pull the classic white guy looking down upon the less fortunate?

    You did a good thing bro. Now if he wasn't already pushing a cart of cans and you went up to some random dude walking on side of road and offered your recycles, then that would have been elitist :hhh:

    How many bottles exactly? If we're talking at least a couple of bucks, then you're a saint. That'll buy the guy a half pint of the cheapest vodka. If we're talking below 2 dollars, you're just a lazy asshole who dumped your shit on some homeless guy.

    Hope that helps. :hat:

    Does not seem like a dick move to me. Sounds like he could use a couple of bucks more than you.

    It was fine. I wouldn't classify it as an act of community service or anything though. :jj:
