Default So.... I just watched a homeless guy....

Dig through the trash and take out 2 or 3 Burger King bags just to see what was in them.... He pulled out all the papers and trash and then just through everyone on the ground. I asked him if he was out of his mind, and he probably is.... His reply was "Mmmfhtpphshs man?, Whuma f**k man? Meenishmupmhp F**k you man!"

I guess I should be thankful it's not poop.

Instead of yelling 'hey, need a couple bucks for a burger?'

You should be thankful you are not homeless.

The majority are mentally ill who could not hold a job for a week if they tried. Feel sorry for him, pray for him, and be thankful if you have been blessed with a properly functioning brain.

Right? He must be mentally ill if he's going through burger king garbage. Go to Wendy's at the very least.

Pity him, think of him, and be glad you aren't him. That's your solution?

Or buy him a burger and support policies and politicians who will do something to improve the incredibly sad sate of mental health services in this country and work to make sure homeless people have place to stay.

Actually, you should go to White Castle........Where EVERY dining experience finishes with paperwork in the end.

You should spend more time around the homeless and give them more credit. Many of them are highly intelligent and many held pretty important or prestigious jobs in previous life before something happened that thrust them into the world they now live. That guy going through the trash was likely looking for a burger or sandwich that was largely intact or only had a bite or two out of it. Once he finds one or two of those, he can carry them in the store and complain that they gave him the wrong sandwich (ie he ordered it with no pickle and it has pickle etc.) he is not going to eat food out of the trash, just use it to get fresh food for free. He will likely find a receipt to go with his complaint if that restaurant policy is he needs a receipt.

We are all one bad decision away from being homeless or dead.

A bum when I was a kid was a guy that couldn't work or wouldn't work, not like the crazy's they have today.

A HoBo was a guy that roamed from town to town looking for work but never held a steady job, think the great depression.

Well stated. There are a lot of homeless people who are just like you and me. A bad decision, some bad circumstances, an illness. It does happen folks.

So you saw the man was hungry and you start a thread on the hull truth. Sure he didn't need to throw trash on the ground but he is still a fellow human which you could have bought him a few burgers.

There are also alot of bums that put themselves in their current positions. If this guy's brain is fried because he chose to abuse drugs and alcohol then nobody owes him anything. If, on the other hand, he is simply mentally ill then I could see buying him a meal.
