I took a homeless man to lunch. *1ST UPDATE*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

It's wet and really cold outside so i offered to take him to lunch and he was very grateful for the hot meal and someone to talk to. His house burned down and is a disabled vet. He has his dog with him so i went to petco and bought him a 40lb bag of dog food and some doggy toy's. I also gave him my little 2 man tent and a few thick blankets. I plan to take him to lunch every week just to make sure he eats and i told him once spring an summer come around i would pay him for lawn care 3 times a week. I will pay him 15 an hour just so i know he can atleast eat and use the truck stop showers..I hope one day he can pay it forward

I saw him by the bus stop and he waved at me so i decided to stop and see how he was and if he still wanted to come help with yard work. Well he got a job at a local supermarket for overnight stock but he said he would be more then happy to help us rake mow and whatever else we needed help with no charge. I noticed his dog wasn't with him and asked how he was and sadly i learned his dog was killed by a couple teenager's he didn't go into detail but it made me super sad that dog was his best friend. He is renting one of those rent by the week motel rooms and i was thinking of getting him a new puppy but i don't know if that would be rude or if he's ready for a new friend...

Oh sweetie, that's what all the bums say. He's going to be one high, drunk and happy bum!!! Good for you! Do for those that don't do for themselves... so that they can continue doing nothing for themselves.

 Yes I know. It's frustrating even to an outsider. I think that's disgusting.

Quoting Master_Debater:

To your question, America is notorious for doing jack shit for veterans period, especially the ones from older wars. :(

Quoting marihla:

 I thought the same damn thing. AND why the hell isn't America taking care of the disabled vets?

Hopefully he will be in the position to pay it forward one day.

Quoting kathislove80:

That's awesome
In all seriousness, where is he going to put the dog food?

That's awesome. I tried to buy a guy breakfast once and he turned me down because he had $400. LOL

People like you make a great difference in this world.

Did he take you up on your offer to do your lawn?
