And they are not usually..

I just think ..the very fact of sitting there
begging shows them at their most vulnerable.

Granted, you get chancers among them, ready to make a quick buck..
we'll always have that, but, in general they are in want,

and NO,

I certainly never regret giving a little help,
and neither am I interested in taking the good out of it
by standing around to see if they go to the pub..
let 'em spend it on whatever 'they' want.

Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't. Sometimes it pi$$es me off when they ask me because there are days I feel like crap for being so broke I can't afford to give money to them. There's a guy who sits outside of our building every day and asks the people walking by for money every day. Kinda gets on my nerves. He appears perfectly healthy, lord knows why he don't just get a job.

Once I gave $2 to a guy and he told me he needed more because he was buying eggs and he needed at least $5. That made me angry. I told him I don't know where you buy your eggs from but they're not $5 a dozen where I shop. I'd given this guy money before and after that last time, I don't think I'll ever give him money again.

There is a guy who stands on the corner here. He is big and about 30. He is there 8 hours a day, rain or shine. It is like he has a job and I almost admire him for it--at least he seems like he is working for it. It is not easy to stand there 8 hours a day.
I like to think maybe he has a criminal record and can't get a job so I give him 5 dollars every few weeks, and I am really broke--it hurts my pocketbook. I wonder if I am helping or I am a fool??

If you LOOK crazy, are missing a limb, on crutches, holding a sign saying you are a vet--you are almost assured of getting something from me. If you look healthy and hale chances are slim you will get anything.

To tell you the truth I've never EVER in my life seen a beggar, so that's why I don't give them money. But if I do ever see one, I could spare some change or whatever.

I do occasionally, NEVER the ones by the freeway on ramps or anything though. You have to make a judgment call and see if they are really needful homeless people, or "professional beggars". Sadly today there are lots of people who do that either as a hobby, or to adjuncts there a check from minimum-wage [or other] jobs. I used to have an acquaintance who did that, he was always laughing about the fact that over the course of the year he begged enough to pay for vacations.
