There is a street off of the highway that almost always has a homeless person with a sign asking for money, work, or the like. I usually do not give $ but if I have food/snacks in the car (usually for my kids) I will give them what I have. Well I should have known that if this asshole could afford hair gel he really did not need a damn thing from me... but I offered him a can of soup (my lunch) and a bag of chips. He just waived me away... It really got under my skin.
On a nicer note... at this same street corner about a year ago I had my (then) 2 year old in the back seet. I had a ton of fruit I was bringing to my Mom's house for a party but didn't feel like I had enough to share (God forbid my fruit salad be short strawberries). I was avidly trying to avoid eye contact with a man holding a sign because I didn't think I had anything to spare. I look at my DD in the back seet and she is waiving like crazy to this guy. Huge smile on her face. The guy (looking all rough and tumble) couldn't help but smile. And eventually he even waived back. I felt like a jerk... so he got a big box of strawberries and a box of blackberries. My DD reminded me to be a better person.
