Panhandlers at McDonalds

This morning on the way to work, I whip into Mickey D's to get coffee and a McMuffin for the commute. I'm sitting in the drive thru, waiting to place my order. This guy walks up to the car window, panhandling. He asked me for fifty cents. I said, "hey, if you're going to beg for money, at least think bigger. Ask me for a five, or a ten. Hell, ask for a dollar. The dollar menu is a dollar. I offered to buy him a sandwich, but not give him money. So he blinked a couple times, then he moved on the car behind me to keep schmoozing for cash. When I got my receipt at the top it said "MANAGEMENT POSITIONS AVAILABLE." Hey, McD's, why not give this beggar on your drive thru line a management position? Win-Win, problem solved!

The panhandlers at McDonalds are bad, but the panhandlers at Wendys are atrocious!

About a year ago, the wife and I went out to dinner and we had some food leftover....so we got a to-go container and left. As we were walking to our car....a guy asked if we could spare some change. I handed him the to-go container....and the guy literally broke down crying and thanked us repeatedly.

I don't like giving them cash for booze, but I have no problem poisoning them with McD's.

Boy was he surprised when he went around the corner and opened it and it only had food in it

It's not bad here, but anyplace much bigger and it gets out of hand. I saw it all the time in Naperville, IL of all places when I lived there. That is a pretty well off place overall, but i think a lot of it was people coming in from other places to try to take advantage of that. It happens in almost every decent sized city I have lived in, and I always just blow them off.

Give a five dollar McDonalds gift card. Hungry, he can eat. Maybe trade for booze or crack, but you did your best.

A lot of times there is a mental illness and dependency issues. They need booze or counseling, but to go without either would be horrible for most of them.

But seriously I have a hardcore anti-solication rule. I don't care who you are, you can be the poorest kid on the block or the hottest prostitute in town, if you ask for money the answer is no. If you want educate me on something and let me decide if I feel like offering money where it's appropriate. But never ask me for it, if you do the answer is no regardless of the circumstances.

But really if you want to make a difference for the homeless/poor/etc take all the money you would have given to individuals and give it to an outreach organization or a food bank. If you want to feel good donate your time to the same groups and you'll see and help many more people who are legitimately struggling but not putting the dollars you give them into a bottle or their vein.

If I'm going to give them a treat, I need to at least see them perform a trick.

Try this "you want a dollar? I'll give you $5 if you try a back flip"

Some old guy came into my job the other day asking for money. He was VERY old, probably 70-something, with liver spots and weird bruise-ish cut thingies on his skin (think Al Davis pre-death). He was also wearing a nice dress shirt, tucked, and slacks.

So he started going on about how he locked his keys in his car, only had $80 on him but the locksmith was charging $92 + tax and wouldn't follow him home, blah blah blah. He seemed pretty embarrassed, which could easily have been an act, so I just gave him $18. He asked for my card and I told him don't worry about it. He said thanks and once again looked rather embarrassed as he said "I tell you, if you ever told me I'd be begging for money on the streets of Orlando........" as he walked out.

He left the building and I watched him walk across the parking lot toward some other businesses. I ended up having to do some actual work so I couldn't see where he went... But I do wonder what the actual story behind that was..

My wife and I were pulling out of Target last weekend with our two small children.

There was a man panhandling on the corner - held a sign that read "Please help - no money for food or rent". Sitting at the stop sign on the corner were (what I assume to be) his wife and HIS two small children. The wife was waiving to the cars passing by - and his kids were coloring - happily unaware of what their parents were doing.

It ripped my heart out and made me enraged all at the same time. Those kids don't have a chance - and how low do you have to be to bring your family begging with you - rather than working however many jobs necessary to provide for them.
