    I do both on a regular basis. It depends how they come at me, or how they might have come at me in the past.

    sure, if they approach with a sense of entitlement, then fuck them.

    I feel bad for vets because they get shafted by the govt.

    In Passaic NJ one time I gave a mother fucker the 75 cents change in my pocket and he was all like "You ain't got a dollar?" I told him to go fuck himself in no uncertain terms. Now I don't give anyone anything thanks to him.

    I had a family member who was on the street due to drug and alcohol addiction, he's long since recovered, but I always help someone because I hope someone helped him

    I offered a homeless guy half my lunch the other day. He said "nah" and walked away. For a split second I thought about running him over.

    Depends. I see this dude at the same corner every day and have picked him up in the ambulance before (for alcohol, drugs), so now I just give him the finger

    When I worked in Memphis, there was a lady by where I worked who held up a sign that said "Need bus fare to get home." She did that for a couple of years.

    When I worked In Austin, there was a lady by where I worked that held a sign up for 2 years that said "Pregnant and broke."

    There's a guy that used to beg at I820 and Denton Highway in Haltom City. One day he'd be playing a guitar. One day he'd have a sling on his left arm. One day he'd have crutches. He had about 5 different routines.

    I almost never give anyone any money.

    Joseph Merrick was homeless and people scorned him.

    Until a hospital took him in and he began the rest of his life with a semblance of dignity.

    We know him as the "Elephant Man."
