at the steaknshake i was eating at earlier. It was really weird because he was sitting at the table in front of me facing me so it was sort of awkward...I mean, I live in Indianapolis, so it's not like I see them everyday, but I've seen a few downtown. I didn't really know what to do...I wanted to give him some money or order him some food because all he had was water, a small thing of beans, and those free oyster crackers, but I didn't want to offend him or something like that. I think he saw me look at him and i felt really bad, but it was a really awkward situation.
So has anything like this ever happened to you guys?

I would've sat there, staring right into his eyes, then, without taking your eyes off him, steadily throw some oyster crackers right at his face. Make sure only your arm is moving.

I met a homeless guy on the streets of London begging, but I had no money and I really wanted to help him. So I sat and kept him company for a couple of hours.

My brother gave one £20 to spend on food. When we looked back he was getting a 6 pack of beer...

I met a homeless guy in New York, and I was trying to help him get his life back together and get a job, but then I realized we were not alike at all, so I stabbed him.

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

Let me guess, after that you shoved a cat into an ATM.

Yeah I would've thrown food at him. It's not your fault he fucked up his life

walk up to him and then really wimperingly say 'd...d...dad?'
and see if he begins to cry and says 's...son?'
#13
You ever wonder why homeless people chose to get screwed up on drugs or alcohol instead of eating? Because then when it is cold outside, they dont feel it. The cold doesnt bother them. I figure if they are gonna buy some alcohol or something with the money I give them, then so be it.

One time when I was in LA a homeless mexican guy who couldn't speak english kept following me and I finally gave him 5 bucks and he left me alone. I felt bad but I can't give money to everybody who asks for it. He's probably just gonna spend it on illegal things anyway.

damn, here in los angeles i see a bum every day. every single day. not just one, a lot!

He would have appreciated the food, but I typically won't give a homeless guy money. One time I offered to go to McDonalds with a guy and buy him food and he yelled at me and told me I was being selfish because I wouldn't give him money. So I walked away.

thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard
if your homeless and tricking people into giving you money, by making them think you will get food, that mean you've been wasting your money on booze for a while. if you hadn't turned to drinking in the first place, maybe you wouldn't be in the mess
also, its lying and deciet. If your going to use the money for booze, be honest about it. I once saw a homeless guy that had a sign that said he needed money for beer. my friend said at least hes being hones. i lol'd.

you should have thrown food near him on the ground and see if he picks it up. if so, you should have kicked him in the kidneys and stole his food and bum hat. now THAT's a story. not to mention you get a free bum hat

There's one guy in Plymouth (who apparently is that guy that lived in the tree in bristol airport), who is really friendly and only asks for money so he can get a cup of tea to warm him up. I sometimes give him money cos he genuinely does spend it on tea because i see him the same day with a cuppa.

My friend let two homeless guys he met stay in his garage for the summer up until about a month ago. They were nice guys and they needed a place to crash while they saved up money so they could rent an apartment together. After half a year all they had bought was ham, beer, and pot. He gave them a months warning to move out because they were really running up the electricity bill in the winter with their space heaters constantly on. You know what they did? They told all their homeless buddies that he betrayed them and stole everything they had in the garage. We figure they pawned what they could, but we were genuinly upset. We had gotten to know them and they had been kickass guys. While it sucks they got upset about having to leave, I think I can understand that they must've felt a bit hurt. I don't know what the point of this post is, but it may be something along the line of homeless people aren't all assholes-they're people like us, except they have to really fight to survive. If I saw they I again I wouldn't ask to take them out to lunch, but I wouldn't want to hurt them either.

I always give money to homeless. I'm a firm believer in second chances. If they choose to buy crack with what I give them then that's their prerogative.

The way I see it, it doesn't really matter what they buy with the money. I know what I gave them the money for and that's all that matters.
