homeless man given a kindle

What would you do? Beggars…



I was in Dublin recently and I found a five euro note on the floor & decided to pass it on to a young homeless couple.

As I was handing it over, a man grabbed my wrist and stopped me.

He asked, ‘Have you asked them what they’ll spend it on?’

I asked him why that should be any of my business.

The man said, ‘They might spend it on something they shouldn’t.’

I said I wasn’t giving them the money to play god.

He then waited around to ask me if they said thank you.

They did – but I explained that wasn’t why I gave the money to them and quickly got out of his way.

That’s why I think you should read this post… Beggars by Chicaderock.
