I saw a guy at an intersection with a cardboard sign that said "VETERAN WILL WORK FOR FOOD" so I stopped & gave him 5 of my last $7 then I ate cheap at Taco Bell. As I drove back that way I saw the "veteran" go behind a business, take off his old Field Jacket & put it and the rolled up sign in his pack from where he removed a Columbia jacket, put it on and hop into a newer Toyota, start it up & drive away smoking a cigarette. It felt real good when I gave him the $5 but then later I felt like a real sucker and would have hurt that guy if I could have caught up with him in traffic.

I saw that guy just last week at Elliot and 60 with his sign. I did not stop, because I gave someone else money a couple months ago and found out he was a scam. He claimed to be from Monett, kids,no job,I gave him a 20$. Felt pretty stupid later for feeling sorry about his situation. Now, I don't give anyone money unless it's Salvation Army or Ozarks Food Harvest. Still need to help,just pickier where it goes.
