this happened to me the other day and i'm wondering how the pit would have handled it

i was waiting at a bus stop to get home when a small ratty looking guy comes up to me and asks rather tweakily whether i could loan him some change for the bus. "sure" and as i'm digging through my pockets for change he hands me a bus ticket and says "i'll even give you this bus ticket if you give me me some change one ticket costs X much this is a good trade for you blah blah"

-__-

by the way he carried himself and the ridiculous hole in his story it was pretty apparent he needed drug money.

so i lost all respect and told him to keep his bus ticket and gave him some change, he said thank you and ran off.

how would you have handled it? i could have told him to **** off but i guess i felt a little bit of sympathy and mercied him some change.

Similar thing happened to me. This one guy comes up to me and he's scary as shit. I dunno why, they always come to me. I guess I just look nice and caring?

I swear to you, I thought I was about to be stabbed. I mean this guy was right up in my face asking for coins and I said "Um... I'm sorry man I only have a few. I don't carry much change on me", and I thought that was it. I'm going to be robbed. He was staring at me so angrily.

Once he saw I was telling the truth, he appreciated it and thanked me for actually giving the few cents I had and not making shit up. I guess he seemed scary because he was frustrated, and he has every right to be.


No clue if that went towards drugs or whatever, probably drugs, but I'd like to think it wasn't drugs.

once a guy comes upto me and says he needs my phone to call the ambulance for his girlfriend because she's going into labour. i read about a technique to get people like this off their feet, so i launch into a story about how primary school was hard for me and pretend i have no idea what he just said. i knew he was lying about needing my phone to call 999 because there was a ****ing phone booth right adjacent to us, and there was absolutely no girl in sight. plus he just seemed the type to be like a little bitch that steals from people.

when i'm done with my story he calls me a nutter and asks for my phone again. i say 'yeah nice to speak to you too mate see ya around' with a nervous catch in my throat and walk off. he didn't follow, mostly because we were on the main road. he just turns the other way and starts walking. i advise people to use this technique, it makes the bully of the situation feel not intimidating at all and they just give up.

in this case, i would've said i have no money tho.

The town drunk came up to me a couple of weeks ago asking me for money to buy a sandwich. Later on I saw him walking out of the shop with a bottle of vodka.

I was at this casino parking lot with my nephew, an some guy walked up to us wanting money for tabs (Just came out and admitted it) He was talking more to my nephew so I walked off and let him deal with it.

I think I made the right call.

this guy looked rather innocent. he was actually pretty polite. i wasn't really scared of him at all, i lost all respect and it's hard to be scared of something you don't respect

I usually do give them money because I'd rather them get money from me instead of having to mug someone or rob a place in desperation in order to get their fix.

EDIT: In all honesty, I'd rather just make chemically pure product and give it to people like that at a clinic, but alas, 'tis but a dream.

so yeah i really think year 3 was the hardest for me. like once i brought in a pencil case that has a picture of a calculator on it, and my teacher told me i couldn't bring it in again because calculators aren't allowed... when i tried reasoning with her by telling her it wasn't a calculator, it was a pencil case, she simply wouldn't and sent me to the headteacher's office. i really think some of my confidence issues rooted from primary school.

I wouldn't give him money. Of course hes a crack head and they ALL have a story which is easily deciphered. Eventually you learn that the people who have a hard time asking for it are the ones who generally need it most.

So you're suggesting that needing money for crack is the same as, say, needing money to feed your family?

Once, back when I still ate meat, I had a bunch of McDonalds coupons in my pocket. My brother and I were outside Home Depot and a homeless dude rolls up to us on his bike. Then he started asking for change, so he could SPECIFICALLY go get some macdolans. He was talking to my brother, though, and I don't like jumping into conversations, so I never gave them to him. I never used them either.

Also, in my hometown, there was this alcoholic hobuhlo that would dance for change. You'd start beatboxing, and he'd groove hard. He'd be happy for whatever change you could spare. He froze in a ditch.
