Well today me and my girlfriend were walking about downtown, and a homeless person approached who had approached us had showed us "all the money" he had supposedly made in the past few hours around the area asking people, which wasn't very much. Few dollars at most.

Anyhow, he had told us that he needed a bit of money so that he can get back home to his family and I was feeling bad for the guy as he seemed to be in a bad place, so I as well as my girlfriend both reached into our wallets and both gave him a 20$ bill. Feeling generous and kind of good at the time until we watch him as he's walking away as he stuffs the two bills into his sock where you could clearly tell there were more bills there. It's not even the fact that we lost 40$ that I'm kind of mad about. I could care less about that 40$, hell I spend more a day on every day things than that.

What makes me mad is how most homeless people use generous people who are sympathetic to their situations to for the most part buy drug money.

I've given money to them before, but majority of the time now I just say I only carry cards because I've seen them take my money and go buy beer.

A woman approached me and asked for a few dollars for a bus ticket. I gave her $5 and watched her walk straight into a grocery store. Few minutes later I saw her walking out with a beer in her hand.

Sucks because people like that ruin it for other homeless people who do actually need some money for a bus ticket or are starving. That's why I rather buy them food than give them money. You don't know what they'll do with it.

Exactly what I mean if you travel about 1 hour up the road from where I live you will see homeless people who just sit all day begging for money and are apparently homeless but they wil have a small house that isn't very good somewhere because they need money for drugs but when you see someone who actually looks homeless I prefer to buy them stuff seeing as once something is bought they can't get their money back.

For example: if I bought a homeless guy a burger or something from McDonalds lets just say it's £4 for the meal right, if I gave it to him and he threw it away I would instantly know he isn't homeless because he was just wanting money for Drink and Drugs etc, but if the homeless guy started eating I would probably think oh this guy really is homeless, because although there begging for money from us £4 is nothing if your doing the right thing and u would 100% rather give the food to someone who really needed it instead of drug addicts who will probably die soon due to them not choosing the correct lifestyle.

Homeless people, more so in America when they become homeless they can become addicted to drugs, now the drugs relieve their illness and they enjoy it. Because they can get very sick outdoors because of the fumes in the air. So they have this addiction and people end up giving them money which aids their addiction but actually, people should be stopping their addition not helping them get off the streets.



Here is an eye-opening video of what homelessness is like.

You think that's bad I seen a guy get out of a 2015 tahoe and get into a wheel chair and wheel to the side of the road and beg for some money. That's the point when I gave up on humanity

I kinda feel the same way. I feel that they should just say the truth and get money off people like that rather than lie about it, especially people who actually aren't homeless but act it they piss me off. I understand that sometimes lying about things to get money may help them but it still annoys me.
