Anonymous said: business suit vs. homeless - while it does have a point, there are plenty of homeless people asking for that $$ not for coffee or a bus ticket or food, but lying to get it for drugs. Instead of giving them $0.50 towards a cup of coffee try buying them a cup instead, see if they accept it. Some will, some won't, and some will accept it only to throw it out when you walk away. It's not always as cut and dry as this wants it to be.
Here’s a novel idea: it’s none of my business what anyone uses their money for. Once I give it to them, it’s not mine anymore, and it really doesn’t matter what happens to it after that unless I’m an entitled asshole who thinks it’s still mine and wants to control how other people live!
Not to mention, if you go to give someone some money and act like it sounds anon acts, some people are going to decide that their human dignity is worth more than a cup of coffee. Nobody wants to be treated like a small child. Hell, in a lot of cases, small children shouldn’t be treated the way small children are treated.
