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?

I wouldn't. Living in a big city, the first thing I look at on someone who is begging is the shoes. A homeless or down on their luck person generally has crappy shoes or if they are really down, NO SHOES.

I remember once a panhandling asked my husband and I for money and he was dressed head to toe better than my husband and I were (I was a student at the time and my husband was unemployed). We just kept walking but I so badly wanted to say "how about you give us some money, buddy."

Everybody has had the same reaction. Look at the shoes.
