    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...

    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!!

    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...

    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!

    Its simply impolite to make fun of anyone and it shows how those making fun are just immature and inconsiderate of how that person might feel. Its a huge turnoff to me.
