Question

What do you do?

A young couple with a child in a stroller get on the subway. He's clean and well spoken. He makes a polite plea to the passangers asking for money. He states that he doesn't have a job and must feed his family. He is wearing $200.00 sneakers.

Do you give?

Why not?

I didn't because of the sneakers. I figured either his priorities are screwed up or he's a fake.

the sneakers and the fact that panhandlers have told me that they make quite a good living, especially in cities. i imagine the kid doesn't hurt their take either.

i met a guy panhandling in SF in 1985 who told me he made enough every summer to go to the carribean for the winter.

Maybe I should change professions.

Is there a difference between panhandling and practicing law?

republicans don't hate panhandlers as much
