    Almost never. I have noticed over the years though that black people give way more often than white people. Even to white beggars. Always wondered about that phenomenon.

    Drove by one redhead holding one of those signs, and I stopped and asked her,

    "How much for a blowjob?"

    She freaked out on me.

    "Fuck you, asshole!!!!"

    I was kind of surprised, actually.

    I'll buy them Shamrock Shakes™ when they're available. I tell them it will improve their luck.

    I saw the best panhandler gimmick of all time this week.

    Guy put sun glasses on a dog aND trained it to walk up to people while holding a "plz help me" money bucket for people to drop dollar bills in.

    FUCK NO. Around my town these "beggars" come out during rush hour, pick high traffic off ramps, and "beg" for a few hours... and rack up 100+ dollars on average. Then straight to their dope dealer. I have seen these people with tablets, cell phones, expensive headphones.... I have seen them put on dirty clothes to beg while walking to their sign flying spot. Fuck these pieces of shit, if you're really begging you better be out there all fucking day in the heat.

    I give from time to time. They've got s pretty lousy lot, and probably won't get much better. No harm in giving a bit to ease them a bit

    You need to rephrase the question:

    "Would you give money to a crack addict/alcoholic?"

    There is a reason we call people "Homeless" instead of addicts or mentally unstable. You can raise money for homeless but not crack addicts.
