    Exclamation Does Anybody Else Not Give Money To Vagrants On The Street???

    I definitely do NOT do this.....But if I have some food with me...I give it to em. The last time I did that, I gave this homeless women a half rack of ribs and fries.

    I have not seen it with my own eyes, but I feel like if i give them money..they will use it to buy booze or drugs.

    There is a really polite homeless man always helping everyone at the train station and I wish I had something to give him like food. But I believe some are addicts are not willing to get help. Like my uncle he is a dwarf who goes round begging for money the whole family has had enough so we check in on him but he is left to stay at a hostel and drink himself to death. I also think that there are services to help the homeless if they want it. But I do have sympathy for some, met one that got set on fire whilst sleeping rough I gave him money.

    Can't stand the gypsies that have their lil kids come beg for money. Some of them even get state support

    I give them money. It's not my concern what they do with it.

    I don't give to people who can work or alcoholics. But for some reason I have soft spot for people obviously less fortunate who can't do better. Like the old man who blind or the orphan kids on the streets. Last time I was in JA this lady was on the sidewalk with a little kid and she begged me $50 JA. I didnt have any cash on me cause I was on my way to the bank. On my way back I was hoping they would still be there but they left. To this day it still botheres me.

    I couldn't imagine being filthy rich and seeing poor people suffering without no sympathy. Maybe I'm too kind.
