In my town we have a large amount of panhandlers. I do not usually pay much attention to them or look down on them for the way they live. Today on my way home from work I saw a guy standing at a light that there are not normally panhandlers. I noticed him because he was in his mid to late twenties and did not really look homeless. His sign said something about needing work, or working for food, something like that. I can't remember exactly what his sign said because it was really just your average panhandler sign, and the lady with him really caught my attention. She was in her mid-twenties, and was holding a sign too. Her sign really caught my attention and made me wonder. Her sign said "Hungry Vegans" Anything will help". She did not look homeless or down on her luck. Her hair was cut into a trendy short haircut, it was colored red, and her bangs were long and bleached on the ends. I only explain how she looks because that is part of the reason i paid attention to her. If they are truly starving and begging for food, wouldn't they take any food they could get to help ease the pain of hunger? It makes me wonder if they put hungry Vegans on the sign so people would not try to give them a 99 cent McDouble, and would be more likely to give them cash. My question is really for Vegans I guess, if you were starving and begging for food, would you take any kind of food you could get, or would you rather starve? I am just wondering if they would rather starve, or if it was a ploy to get money instead of the McDoubles most people give the panhandlers around here.
