I Hate When People Beg At Stoplights

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 105 People

    NOOO!

    I cant stand when homeless people come up to my car and beg for change. It makes me feel so uncomfortable I roll my windows up and make sure all the doors are locked even when I know they are. I understand that people get down on their luck but if you can stand...

    Polite Beggers

    In my area the beggers are polite. They ask nicely for money and always say May God Bless. I find myself looking at their shoes. Some of them have really good running shoes on. I can't figure that one out.

    Small Town, Lots of Vagrants

    Every single stoplight in my town has people begging for money. I used to feel so bad, but its a bombardment of people everyday, everywhere! Sometimes if I have the spare money I will go and buy them backpack food or vitamin water (they could use all the nutirents they can get...

    IT Bugs Me

    I just bugs me that people, who beg for money, are now stepping off the curbs and sidewalks and right into traffic at stoplights begging.  It just BUGS ME!!

    Red Light Beggers

    I hate them begging at lights as they don`t need the money really ,most are drug or wineo`s and they become abusive if you refuse them , As i always do. The people that really need the money never ask for it and they the ones i would like to help. And when parents use kids to do...

    Safety Concerns

    My main worry is that one of those folks will get smacked by a car, or otherwise hurt.  On the flipside, (depending on the area) am wary of opening my car window to a stranger.  Like it or lump it, I do have to think of safety, both for me and for my passengers.... to...

    Can I Ctrl + Alt + Delete Them?

    I want to hit them with my car... And they seem to MULTIPLY around the "giving season"... the true people that deserve any kind of charity are the consistant ones who put their heart and soul into begging for money year round!

    Dangerous And Annoying!

    At almost all major intersections day or night there's always someone there with their sign weaving in and out of the traffic stopped at the light begging for money. Hey I could use more money too, though I really think this is tacky. If people would stop giving them money...
