I noticed there are a lot of beggars in my city. They were told not to hang out on city corners, or offramps, so now they are going to the suburbs corners. My son even told me they are hanging out at the ATM machine. He said one said he needed monies for food, but when my son picked the place, he saidno, he wanted to eat at another place!

That is so rude, if they were really hungry they wouldn't be so picky, they should be grateful for any help at all.

Lol, you would think so, but they are very picky here! And, to top that, when you give them change, they want more, or they want specific currency types. If you give them a dollar in change, they will snub their nose and say you should give them a $5!!

I think you encountered a bad apple. I hope it doesnt change your opinion of the entire homeless population. I have never had any beggars turn down anything I have offered, and I usually offer my leftover food or a soda if I have one on me.
