I see them all the time when I'm wandering around town at 5am after a night out. I just offer them a rollup and tell them to jog on.

Do you mean a joint, or a Fruit Roll-up?

I would have told him that I have no money.

Me too, but mainly because I wouldn't have had money.

A homeless starving person is a homeless starving person whether or not they're drug addicts, is what I'm saying.


Unless you're going to feed all the homeless(you samaritan you), you'd better differentiate between who deserves what little you dole out.

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.

A pretty good one. No one goes "gosh I can't seem to get money via legal means. Better quit crack lol"

I was talking about rationalizing away the moral underpinning to alleviate guilt for feeding someone's self-destructive habit, not about preventing crime.

Except that homeless starving person who struggles to feed his family isn't going to spend what I give him on crack, in this instance.

If you think someone who's going to buy smack deserves your help to buy smack as much as someone who's going to feed their children, you're a twisted person.

If i think i could knock them out if they attacked me then i make them admit they are spending it on drugs or booze before I give them anything.
But generally, if someone asks me for money and they look ****ed up then i will give them some change as i would only spend it on booze, weed or cigs anyway

1) How am I supposed to know if they have a family or not?
2) By your logic every time you give money to a friend instead of some starving family you're being a twisted person.
3) Why does it matter if they spend it on crack? If it makes their day more enjoyable then I'm happy I could help them achieve that.
4) I give to homeless people mostly out of instinct. I don't stop and think about what they're going to spend the money on. All I know is that I'm an over privileged white suburban kid and that other people could use my money a lot more than I could(I'd probably only spend it on weed or cigs or fast food).

Alright, let's number it, then.

1. In this situation, the person asking for money was into drugs, and likely, based on common sense and life experience, using the money for crack. It wasn't a man with his belongings in a bag with his dirty kids next to him. Regardless of whether he actually has a family or not, in this situation, he's going to spend the money on drugs, not his family.
2. No, by my logic, giving money to someone who is using it to buy crack instead of better their situation, and in doing so digging themselves a bigger hole, is twisted. If you can't differentiate between that and helping a buddy of yours pay his rent or buy some food, something is drastically wrong with your logic process.
3. If you're cool with feeding a drug addict's habit because it makes them feel good for a while, then that's just a shame, but it's also your business, despite being highly questionable morally.
4. Again, you're not differentiating between people in need, and people in need of drugs. Perception seems to be an issue for you. Perhaps you should look into that.

Something like this happened just this last Friday to me. I was coming out of a bus station with my girlfriend when this shady looking guy holding something wrapped in a newspaper comes up to us and asks if I needed a taxi. When I told him no he proceeded to start telling us about how latinos travel in bulk and how the manager for the mcdonalds down the street was racist. Anyway this guy is following us the entire time, even around the corner of the bus station and nearly a block away (we walked past the girlfriend's car because we weren't about to stop with him there) to the nearest gas station. Once we get to the doors of the gas station he stops and says that he'll be waiting for us when we get out. so we drop into the gas station, run out the back entrance as fast as possible, loop around the gas station and jump into my girlfriend's car as fast as humanly possible. we nearly got ran over when crossing the street because neither of us realized the pedestrian no crossing sign was up. But yeah, I'm still kinda freaked about having to go back to the same station when that guy might be there.

1. I think it'd be incredibly pretentious of me to go around interrogating people and judging which had the most moral cause. Not to mention they could just lie anyways. Unless you want to eliminate people's privacy there's no way of knowing whether or not they're going to spend it on personal benefit or the benefit of someone else.
2. I'm not a walking rehab clinic.
3. Ditto.
4. Perception seems to be an issue for me? What do you mean by that?

I always ask them to be honest, and if they just say they're gonna buy drugs with it I give them some money.
Think it helps them a lot more than blatently ignoring them, or giving them a lecture about how bad drugs is. It's not like they think it's good for them.... never get why people lecture.

1. Again, perception. If you can't discern a person's basic intent by hearing them, seeing them, and judging based on your past experiences in life, you're crippled in some way. You're also constantly unaware and probably easily taken advantage of. I'm not saying to indiscriminately ignore people in need, but just assuming the best irrationally so that you can feel good about yourself when you're conceivably hurting someone is incredibly naive.
2. You're right - addicts only function around rehab domes. My mistake.
3. -
4. Perception seems to be an issue for you means that you seem to have a severely difficulty time discerning the world around you and the intent of the people in it, as in you aren't able to perceive things as a means of taking in information of what is happening around you and why, then measuring them against what you've learned in life, and deciding based on that realization whether or not following through is a good idea or not.

Just the other day some guy came up to us at the super market and begged for money. He was a consistent bastard too. First he came up and complemented my mom and started asking if she went to church. Then when waiting in line he asked the crackheads in front of us if they could use his food stamp card to get money. Then he asked the same thing to my mom again. Then some black guy did what the beggar wanted. Then when we left the supermarket he came up to us again with a fresh pack of cigs and asked for a dollar for food. At that point my mom was ready to punch the guy.

When that happens, and when it's possible, i'll see if he's bullshitting me by instead of offering my change, i offer to pay for his fare when the bus comes. Most people aren't up for that because they're full of shit and are lying to get drug money.

True. One time, this homeless guy outside of a supermarket asked my friend's mom for some change so he could get some coffee. She responded by saying that you can get free coffee inside. Then he replied: "No I don't like the flavour"

There's this one homeless person I see often when I go to/from school.
I find it a good compromise to give him a newspaper and a sandwich. I make too many sandwiches for myself anyway, and there's plenty of newspapers lying around on the train.

I was walking with a friend when this "crack head" came up to us with cum on shirt he was bald and had a babyish face. He was crying cuz he couldn't get batteries into his mp3 player. My friend then grabbed my arm and called me a moron for trying to help him. As the guy just stared at us walking away from him with a pissed look on his face with tears goin down his cheek. May not have been a crackhead, but it was sketchy part of town.

Once my friend and I was approached by a ragged looking guy right next to an atm.
He asked for some money to buy a train ticket so he could return to Ireland. He mumbled some far out history and ended every sentence with the phrase: I will pray for you, I'm Irish.

I didn't give him anything, was that a mistake? Is an Irish prayer more effective than regular prayers?

happened to me a few times but i drive now and literally just drive to where i want to be.
But walking away from o2 academy when I saw Slash a few weeks a go a chav asked for 45p and I couldn't be bothered with any possible hassle so i gave him £1. I put my hand in my pocket, opened my wallet and pulled a coin out. Thought it easier than pulling it out and coin counting incase he tried to take the lot which included my parking ticket to get out the car park.

I usually just give them whatever and walk away. Can't be bothered with people

I don't give change to anyone anymore. I would have told him that I did not have any change.

So many pieces of shit out here in AZ want money from me so they can pay for their shitty habits. Outside of Circle K's is notorious for that begging bullshit. One time I came out of there with a case of budlight and a homeless methhead asked me if I could give him and his friends some beer. I told him no, and walked away from him, then as soon as I opened my car door, another guy walked up to me dangerously close and asked for a beer from me. I said no again and drove off.

I hate beggers with a passion. Arizona ruined that for me.
