I love that even the homeless in this country have smartphones. (Me.) I love too that the homeless beg the other homeless (yep, me) for money.

Seriously, this is getting stupid. The same asshole bums keep asking me for money. I keep telling them the same thing, get a job. I'm homeless too and I have one.

Some just love to beg instead. Surprised that they're not near street corners with signs. See that here all the time. The professional ones.

I saw on the news, a while back, some folks in New York city made a couple hundred bucks a day panhandling.

I remember on the local news or some place where they had followed this one and when the left the area they followed to where the individual lived. Nice home, cars etc. I was at some store when someone came up in the parking lot asking if I had spare change. Was dressed better than me and was wearing earbuds etc. Told him flat out no and walked away.

For my first meal under the open sky, I had a can of baked beanses. Some cliches are just too much fun.

Not only in America, as I recall about the turn of the 20th century Author Conan Doyle Wrote a Sherlock Holmes story of a London solicitor who found he could make more money begging then working.
