Walked over to Circle K by my work to get a soda and there was a really rough looking woman setting off to the side under some shade. When I walked back I stopped and asked her if she was ok. She was very thin and missing a few front teeth. Said she was waiting for her boyfriend to come get her. I asked her how long she had been there and she said a few minutes. She didnt have anything but a grocery bag with something in it and a lighter.

It is hot here in AZ so I asked her if I could get her anything like some water and she said they need money. I told her I couldnt help her with that but would buy her a drink so asked for a 44 oz coke so I bought her a 97 cent polar pop. I told her if her BF never showed up to call 211 if she needs shelter.

I could tell by talking to her something is off with her...She has either done alot of drugs, or she is a littlke out of it or both.

BTW I didnt post this to brag or get an atta girl, but to say I guess I normally dont help them but decided to talk to her for a minute. Can't help but wonder how someones gets to this.

That was nice of you but be careful. People like that flip out and start stabbing anyone near them.

I normally just ignore homeless and less fortunate. .97 made a big difference to this woman.

I guess thats why.

I swear, anon 1 and 3, are you just trying to rack up posts to get to a higher level or a high? Geez

Op, I agree with anon 2, be careful. We have a large problem in my area with this and the city is trying to combat it. It's getting better, but still has a long ways to go. You did the right thing by not giving any money. Drinks are easy and good.
