    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!!

    Small Town, Lots of Vagrants

    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...

    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!

    3 Times a Week

    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.

    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...
