Default today is a good day

to give some money to a bum homeless whatever. In real life not from your cozy living room on your computer and make a credit card payment to some place. Anyways sometimes I drive sometimes I park far as hell like 2 miles put on ice t and walk to work and sometimes I take the train. Today I took the train because its cold as hell outside and I see bums everyday. Very rarely I give. This guy white addict one of those long wool jackets on dirty fingernails late 20s mid 30s. Worn out busted *** shes. He was slouched over sleeping and at every stop he would wake up and doze off again.

But what caught my attention is he had a small footprint tattoo on his hand with a dob of something something 17. I had a 5 on me and honestly I was going to get a scratch off with it since I dont use cash but wanted to give it to him. I dont care if he got meth with it. Go tell your wives and husbands youll be back go to the atm take out whatever make the 2 hour drive to where poor people are find on literally on the street and give it.

I wish him the best

How much does the train cost? Did he sneak on or have to buy a ticket?

I go out on Christmas morning or day for some made up reason that I tell my wife, I go to a gas station or convenience store and buy something cheap, couple of dollars at the most. I'll talk to the cashier and ask them if they have any kids at home while they're working on Christmas. I'll pay with a $100 bill and tell them to keep the change, buy something for their kids, and I'll leave. It's not much, but it's something.

Good for you for helping the guy out. Hope he wasn’t a scam artist and really needed the help.

2.25. Hard to sneak on but he was on the train when I got on. During winter months the addicts and bums sleep on the train.

I always give on the street. Unless the guy is belligerent or really freaking out. Friends give me **** for it too. Santa Monica blvd. has become more and more populated by homeless. Very nice area too. Wealthy and poor mixing it up together.
