Yeah, I don't price these things either, but a helmet wash + $10 seems steep for a ride across town.

I gave to a bum last Christmas, and that's it. The bum was always outside of my apartment and couldn't take a hint that I wasn't going to give him money.

re: How often do you give to beggars/homeless?


I'll occasionally give a few dollars if I have the cash. But I would rather just do something with my church instead that helps the homeless or less fortunate. Our church does several food drives each year and shoe/school supply drives for poor children for back to school. They also have a ministry that will go out and give food and blankets to homeless people as well.



But like redstick said....those in 3rd world countries need our help more than the homeless here. The homeless here have wayyyyyy more programs available to them for help.

Every two weeks the government takes a lot of money out of my paycheck for this. If those people can't find where to get the resulting government handouts, then they are either lying or way too lazy.

There are no homeless and/or poor people in the US. It is all a fraud perpetuated by the liberal left-wing media. Fox News reminds me daily that the government takes our hard earned money and gives it to these people that refuse to do anything for themselves. Beggars are just trying to scheme more money out of us hard working people. They already get enough money from us.

Nope. I refuse to give a beggar any money. I'm not naive. That money is going straight to drugs and alcohol. Me giving them money is embracing the problem the homeless have in the first place, laziness. 99.99999% of homeless are homeless b/c they are lazy bums not b/c of bad luck.

I support charities that give to those that work hard and still don't have enough to support themselves.

So give some cash next time you see someone in need... don't stress about brushing the guy off though. I'm sure he got a $20 from the guy before you.

I will never give a homeless man money, but I will buy a homeless man a cheeseburger. I've bought an awful lot of food for homeless beggars in the past and I don't intend to stop anytime soon. I've gotten nothing but thanks for doing so.

Do you not understand that you're enabling them to keep up their drug use? I thought everyone knew this? The few people who actually give straight cash to the homeless are the problem. Let them get the bare essentials from charities.

I give to the same guy all the time and nobody else. Maybe a buck a week.

My HS principal, the great John C Fabre told us in Catholic studies class that he would buy any homeless person a meal to eat, but ill never give them money.

Everyone is entitled to food.

My tipping point was when I gave a guy a ride home and at the end when I dropped him off, he had the audacity to ask for 5 bucks.


Similar story. I used to give em all a buck (work downtown Nashville so usually asked couple times a week) then one day a guy starts shouting at me that one dollar wasn't enough, he needed two. I almost lost it and told him to give me my fricking dollar back (long story short - I didn't get the dollar back). That was the last day I gave (about three years ago).

I have volunteered at two different homeless shelters and have been told by the people there the worse thing you can do for these people is to give them money (which enables them to continue to kill themselves).

re: How often do you give to beggars/homeless?


Lived in Chicago for 3 yrs and gave to beggars nearly daily. Easter Sunday walking home from church buy a guy a complete meal and he seems a little surprised after he asked for money. Walk back by 30 minutes in shorts to go for a run and he asks me again from money. I see the meal I bought him in the trash right next to him and asked if he recognized me which he did then. I haven't given any money to beggars since then..1999..

This.

This.

fricking 100 times this.

I'm sure we all had Joe jobs at some point in our lives before graduating high school, college, or whatever. The "no education" line is a crock.

I know there are those out there who hit a rough patch and maybe they could not steer their way through it. Such is life. Get up, dust off and try again - from the rock bottom, if need be.

"Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or fricking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back."

Never. That's what soup kitchens/homeless shelters are for. I don't trust them.

Do you realize the traffic those guys see standing by the interstate? I always wonder how much they rake in. They definitely are making more than minimum wage standing on a corner begging while some poor soul is busting butt flipping burgers.

If every other car that passes gives them a few bucks, would you agree they could easily make $50/hour? Oh, and no Taxes on that cash.

re: How often do you give to beggars/homeless?


I had this fella at a gas station once beg for a few dollars to go in and buy a bottle of transmission fluid. He said he was down on his luck and his car was in pretty rough shape. It just so happens that I had a bottle of transmission fluid in my car. I offered it to him and he refused. And can you believe that a-hole didn't even bother to see if it was compatible with his car?
