Who do you think you are standing outside of the store asking people to buy you things, then acting like what they get isn’t good enough for you?
Last weekend, I left CVS and walked past this homeless man standing outside with a noticeably shy, quiet young man in front of him. The younger man had gone inside, bought a sub out of the kindness of his heart and brought it out to give to the guy. I walked by only to find that the homeless man was turning the sandwich around in his hands, saying, “No, this isn’t what I wanted.”
WHAT IS UP WITH THAT!? Just take the food, say thank you and go on your way. I mean what is it that you wanted, some beer? Cigarettes? The poor kid didn’t have to get you anything, but he did. Now you’re going to tell him that he didn’t get you the right kind of sandwich? I couldn’t believe what I had seen. If I was that kid, I would have snatched it right back from his hands and said, “Well then have a nice day.”
I can’t believe these people on the streets are acting like bullies. That wasn’t even the first time I witnessed a situation like that. It seems as if I can’t even walk into the grocery store without someone asking me for money. We’re all broke college kids, but we get targeted because we look vulnerable and too nice to say no. I always see the same homeless people on the side of the road with those black liquor store bags holding 40’s. I don’t understand, how do you have enough money to buy alcohol?
Well, whatever the case, these rude people are ruining it for the rest of the homeless population who are actually starving. The fact that he turned down a sandwich really makes me think, well is he really in need of food, or is it drugs or booze that he really wants?
