If I'm to blame I would help.....
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.
Pee in a glass bottle and chuck it at them...
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.
Oh you mean fuck him like who gives a fuck. I thought it meant something else.
I pretend i don't see them.
it's good to be homeless in Texas apparently
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.
that would be generously philanthropic
help them always
It depends on whether I am working or not.
the hero of the downtrodden
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."
