I dropped off applications to a beggar today!

Oh yes I did! Please tell me I am not the first smart pants to figure this out!

This man stands on a busy intersection near where I live. I see him there pretty much DAILY. His sign never changes. "Out of work, will accept anything".

So today I drove to the nearby stores: McDonalds, Friendly's, Five Guys, Cumberland Farms, Subway, Dunkin Donuts and a few other places and picked up applications. When I drove by, I pulled up, handed them to him and told him I would be back tomorrow to pick up the COMPLETED applications and drop them off for him if he needed. Then I drove off.

I hope he actually fills them out, God knows all the time he stands there begging he could be actually getting a job, since most these places are hiring and have been.

What have YOU given a beggar?

    I've given a beggar a double cheeseburger from McDonald's. I don't give money since it most likely goes to cigerettes.

    Are you also going to give him interview clothes, a phone number and a permanent address? If not, you're just an asshole.

    Ever think that maybe he already tried those places or can't work? He's not an idiot, he knows how to get an application, no need to kick someone when they are down and act like a smart alack.

     um nope not I because people around here tht beg actually cant get a job due to mental issues an health issues. An we have no jobs to give around here even with a degree. I find it rude honestly why not just leave him alone he isnt really bothering you by standing there.

    You never know some one else situation maybe there is a reason he is out of job?
