As a teenager I worked out at the McDonald's by Walmart. We had the same guy there every Saturday for about 2 years. He'd panhandle all day and then walk over to his newer car and drive away. There's actually a city ordinance because of him. It's a shame.

If 1 out of five people leaving Walmart or McDonalds gives him a dollar, he's probably making $20/hr.

Oh he had a great racket. He would always come in and buy lunch and have pocketfuls of money. And most people gave him $5 or $10. He made out like a bandit. Worked 4 hours a week and made more money then I did all month at that place. Gave me a very early education about people who work the system. Working people always get screwed.

Why is he begging when there are jobs available?
Do you have any idea what these leaches make and it's ALL tax free?
They have the money for cigarettes and they often have a dog. Both costs money.
The beggars usually wear new clothing and shoes.

I'm not sure if its the same guy that guest is talking about, but I used to see a guy there at the Walmary/McDonalds intersection with a dog. I stopped one day and have him the dog treats that I had just purchased at Wal Mart. He took them and just stared at me. I told him that he could always get a job, but that wasn't an option for his dog, so I thought it was important to help, and then I got back into my car and drove away as he shouted at me. Needless to say, he wasn't happy!!

I doubt it was the same guy. I don't remember him having a dog. But this was 20 years ago too.

Cause it's at least the 3rd week in a row he's been there!! I bought him some McDonald's a couple weeks ago and when my husband handed it to him didn't even say thanks and stuffed it into his bag where my husband saw more fast food bags! That's when I knew it was a sham, you can't help anybody anymore for bums like that guy!!

I figured he was fake. That's why I threw my shake out the window and hit him!
