About a month ago I did an article about someone I knew who lost his job. He managed to get food stamps but approached me a few months ago saying: "Can you spare me some money. I need some cigarets and beeer". I refused and would still do so. What is interesting is the attitude this guy has shown since. He let me know with his language, hints, etc that he is pissed with me. I go down the street a few times a week to get some chinese food in a strip mall. Also in that mall is a 7-11 type where I always see him with a bagged Natty Lite 4 pack and a pack of cigarets acting like he owns the world. He has kept up asking me for money saying he is down and out and I keep telling him no. As I said in the earlier article I am VERY against cigarets. What interests me is how is he getting the funds for his cigs and beer? Am I right that is about a $10 a day expense? He acts like people, including me, owe it to him. I came very close to confronting him about this but decided it's best not to argue with desperate people. Thing is...recently this guy has been getting rather obnoxious and critical. I think I need to stay away from that Mall!! Isn't it true that a lot lf these stories where some fed up human being pulls a gun out before entering include people kinda - sorta like this guy?
