    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.

    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...

    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...

    3 Times a Week

    That is how often I have to take my daughter downtown for an appointment. The very same interstate exit always has a variety of people night and day asking me for money. The two lanes waiting for the left turn are trapped. People slide on over to the right lane as to be further...
