I used to give when I was dirt poor and younger. but when I grew older I realize most of these guys don't need the money.
So other day a young man come up to me and ask for a dollar, he said he was a dollar short to ride the subway home. He points towards the subway. he didn't hangout at the subway or the area. I thought he could be the real deal of some kid lost and need money.
So after I gave him some money, he went to the next guy etc... got more than a few bucks. At that point i'm like god damn it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. So instead of walking towards the subway he went the other way and kept on saying he a dollar short to get home on the subway.
Me = sucker.
I was the first sucker he approached, if i wasn't I would of thought scam!!! cause if i saw how he gotten more than a few bucks by then.
I like to stick it to The Man, The Man happens to be Liberal in NYC(power Structure).
