I dropped off applications to a beggar today!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Oh yes I did! Please tell me I am not the first smart pants to figure this out!

This man stands on a busy intersection near where I live. I see him there pretty much DAILY. His sign never changes. "Out of work, will accept anything".

So today I drove to the nearby stores: McDonalds, Friendly's, Five Guys, Cumberland Farms, Subway, Dunkin Donuts and a few other places and picked up applications. When I drove by, I pulled up, handed them to him and told him I would be back tomorrow to pick up the COMPLETED applications and drop them off for him if he needed. Then I drove off.

I hope he actually fills them out, God knows all the time he stands there begging he could be actually getting a job, since most these places are hiring and have been.

What have YOU given a beggar?

Too weird.  I saw a guy today and I thought the EXACT SAME THING! I thought, "why can't you be filling out apps instead of begging.  A lot of them are NOT homeless.  This guy was clean cut and not dirty looking at all.  It pisses me off.  I have enough trouble saving money of my own.

I've given 5 arbys sandwiches to a man and his dog and I bought a woman lunch, her boyfriend beat the hell out of her and kicked her out

So did you get him an address, phone to e contacted by, and by chance transportation too? (Those things hold a lot of people back)

 He more than likely ripped them up. You'll see him again tomorrow with the same sign on the same corner. Just being honest.

Harsh, mama. If he has no address, no phone, how can he get a call back? And what about work clothes? Hygeine? He may not be ABLE to work. 

I gave a begging woman a pizza once. She devoured half of it in minutes.

 If he got a job at one of those places he would probably be taking a pay cut.....
