nope. not many beggars around here.

Only one bum in our town...he's kinda creepy...if he asked for money I'd probably walk away.

Only if they're working for a business or charity or something.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/28/09 - 9:58:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no. They usually don't walk up to the car and knock, they just stand there holding signs.

Never. I'm a 20 year old female in Baltimore. Seems like a horrible idea.

Not if they come up to my car window. Occasionally I give money to the ones holding signs. There's plenty at one of the Walmarts here.

No, we don't really get many beggars around here.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/29/09 - 2:26:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I usually give food rather than money.

It's a hell of a lot harder to do than you think.

1. It's hard to get a job when you can't get a shower and clean cloths.

2. It's hard to get a job when you don't have an address.

3. It's hard to get a job when you don't have a telephone number.

4. It's hard to get a job when the unemployment rate is as high as it is now.

5. Many of the homeless are also mentally ill. It's hard for mentally ill people to get a job.

Occasionally.

I've never had any beggars come up to my car.
But I occasionally give them a couple of quid if they ask nicely.

And no beef if they're using it to buy alcohol, it's probably what i'd be using the money for

No; because there's a ton of beggars here, so it’d be hard to pick one. Which results from a society in which everyone's values are the same, and if you don't give to the poor you're a morally bad person. Thus, a common beggar ends up earning more per month than someone working on minimum wage.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/29/09 - 5:51:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
No because if you give to one then they all want money and they don't leave you alone.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/30/09 - 12:55:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, that sounds like a good way to get car jacked.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/30/09 - 5:40:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have never had a beggar actually come up to me before, I've only passed by them in the street.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 2/2/09 - 6:35:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, I punch them
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 2/13/09 - 8:37:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
that rarely ever happens, but no
12 yrs ago - Thursday 5/21/09 - 3:27:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, but only because I never carry cash or change.
12 yrs ago - Thursday 5/21/09 - 10:50:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. When I was in college, I would occasionally buy food or water for them if they asked for it specifically, but once after buy this girl water she started following me around asking for other stuff, so I stopped.
12 yrs ago - Thursday 6/18/09 - 5:51:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never give them money because I don't know how they would spend it.
11 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 9/6/09 - 3:54:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no
11 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 10/1/09 - 7:13:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have a car, but if they did come up to me while I was in one I wouldn't give them anything.
Plus I think it's illegal for people to give money while they're in a car, to someone on the street.

Sure, but I've never had one walk up to me before.
I've given to plenty of the ones just kinda chillin' on the side of the street.
