I was at McDonalds with my family tonight. The kids got Happy Meals and hubby and I each got a dollar sandwich. My 5 year old is really picky and did not finish his nuggets. He ate 1 of the 4.
As we were leaving this big (very overweight) guy approaches our van waves a dollar bill and says "yo yo can you give me $4 'cause I'm diabetic and I need to go to Subway to get a sandwich to fill me up."
Usually (after spending time in NYC for 3 years) when "street people" approach I ignore and they go away. Well, he was right at our van. So I say, "you have enough money to get a sandwich from here. we just had $1 sandwiches and you can too." So he says, "no, I'm a diabetic I can't eat here."
Okay, I give him an A for effort but bullshit.
So, I tell him, "I'm sorry but we are broke. we didn't even get Subway ourselves." He started getting even closer so I say, "here, if you are hungry you can have these chicken nuggets." (the 3 in the box that DS didn't eat)
He opened the box and put them all in his mouth. o_O So much for his diabetic theory. It got him to leave us alone though.
I dunno, I'm not sure if he was really dumb or really smart trying to get more money from us for his "diabetic dinner".
The point is I'm not stupid, I know diabetics can eat $1 sandwiches from McDonalds. I'm not saying he wasn't diabetic.
Do you have any stories involving homeless or street people?
