Re: “'Tough love' for homeless

I know exactly what poor folks have gone through, as I was unemployed for 2 years and did the food stamps, and A&D BUT not once did I ever panhandle!! I finally decided to quit feeling sorry for myself, get off my rear, find a job, ANY job, and that noone else was responsible for the results of my poor choices but me. I went out and I found a job, and today as I noticed a panhandler that spends 10 hours a day at his "spot" begging for people to hit him with a quarter, I told him of 2 places that were hiring. He just shook his head NO, and obviously wants to get money and not work for it. He told me to live in his shoes, but he refused to listen to me tell him that I like him was very poor at one time, but I decided to do something about it! NEVER again will I give any money to any of these people! Want something?? Well, ya gotta work for it. Gee, I imagine that IF that man were to put as much effort into finding a job as he spends begging for to be hit with Quarters, he would have been employed and making twice the amount in honest pay instead of trying to milk all us drivers for money!
