Is it F*cked up to ..

Ok, well everyday on my trip to the city there are countless people who come onto the train begging for money. They yell there sob story about how they have children to feed or they are a war veteran or simply they just want a beer (i always give money to that guy). Here are two of my favorite beggars.

One who I see every once and a while toting around her child saying she has fallen on hard times and needs money to cloth and feed her children. First of all why bring your child around, for proof? Lady your going to lose your kid quicker to child services if you bring her around saying that your dirt poor and can’t feed them. Second, get a job. Third, they have shelters for people to get them back on the right track find one. I seen her probably 4-5 times over a 8 month period. It bothers me. Get help from a shelter. Your the reason why everyone blasts there iPods so they don’t have to hear your sob story.

The second one is my favorite guy .. I drop him some change every once and a while. His story is as follows: He lost his sight about 10 years ago. He looks like he is in his thirties. Thing is I don’t really believe he is blind or completely blind like he says. I have reached out to give him change without saying anything once or twice to only have him dip his cup down a little in my direction to my outstretched hand. Here is my plan, next time I see him I plan on pulling him aside and making his day. I will ask him to guess how many fingers I am holding up 1-2 or 3. Just for playing he gets a consilation prize of $1, now he if guesses right he gets $5. Is this mean? Someone said yes but come on $5 if he wins buys him a subway sub and a drink. I wish someone would make my day and play that game with me. Win, Lose or Draw he is winning money. I think I’m going to become the Subway Bob Barker. This is what he looks like: (sorry for the quality I used paint at work)

blind guy

None the less if the guy gets angered I even brought this game up to him I’m sure I can side step his stray punches and hope he punches another subway rider. Then the fun really ensues.

Yes, I am going to hell but hey you gotta enjoy life and shake it up a little. I’ll let you know how my project works out. Hopefully I can record it on my camera.
