  • I actually read a sign twice just like that. A indian woman was on the side of the road and her sign said I have 3 hungry children. There stomachs are hungry can you help. I heard the best job is pan handling. I just wonder whose real and who isnt really homeless. This guy in New York I think it was 4 yrs ago made close to 1million dollars panhandling.

  • Wow, thankfully I havent run into any of that. Just curious though, did you give the man anything?

  • See this is why I dont give money to hobo's and I dont feel bad for them because you cant tell who really needs help and who doesnt.

  • Once in SLC, a man had a sign that said " I Bet you a 1$ you just read this", it was the best one I have ever seen, but I did not give him a dollar

  • My favorite one that I saw was "Hey even a fat man needs to eat," he was a fairly large man. I almost went and bought him something to eat just because his sign made me laugh. The only people I have ever given money two were either playing and singing on the sidewalk or were doing some sort of act that was pretty decent. I figure I will give you money if you can work for it.

  • no..only because im an observer by trade.
    i noticed that he had on brand new tennis shoes(jordans) price $189.99+tax, polo (ralph lauren) they cost @ least $25-45 a shirt,clean jeans..clean nails an fresh hair cut..some ppl might say what difference does that make..but my thought was if u put that much money into yourself to come out here an panhandle then u could have wore that to an job interviiew..i wanted to ask him bout his dress attire but didnt cause my hubby said dont start anything..
    im not homeless an i dont even have name brand clothing..but if i were not there an someone would have told me bout this guy i would have thought they were making it up..
