A Letter To The “Not So Homeless” Man On The Curb At Wal-mart

You sir are an asshole.

Last week I took pity on you and bought you a breakfast sandwich and an orange juice.  I refuse to give anyone, who pan handles, money for fear that I am just supporting their addiction, but I do believe no one should be hungry in this country.  Although that sandwich and juice weren’t much it was still $3 that I could have spent on my family instead of wasting it on your dishonest self.

Often there are times that when a good deed is offered it goes unrecognized except to the holder of said thoughtfulness.  But today I was so clearly given “a sign” when as I was leaving Wal-Mart…at the very precise moment I was pulling out of the parking lot…who should I see getting out of a new model Toyota car and planting himself, with cardboard sign and backpack in hand, on the curb?  YOU!  If I wouldn’t have had my kids in the car I would have stopped and given you a piece of my mind mister!  You are a disgrace to the human race.  It is people like you who prevent people who are in real need of help, ever getting any.  You are the reason that so many people refuse to give even 5 cents to the “truly” homeless man living in a cardboard box on the street.  Shame on you!

    1. That’s what my husband said lol…he would have yelled at the guy regardless if the kids were in the car…it’s not so much that I shelter my kids from me yelling obscenities at complete strangers but that you just never know what kind of people they are and my children’s safety will always be first in my mind

  1. A friend of mine had a similar experience here in the UK last year. She was quite disgusted when she saw a beggar she had previously bought food for park his car and go into his house. The dishonesty of these people is quite astounding and gives a bad name to all the truly homeless people out there. Well done on keeping your temper in check.

    1. I think that’s what upset me the most…the fact there are so many that are in “true” need and this asshole is out there fooling people into believing he is homeless and has nothing …I still won’t stop giving a meal to a homeless stranger but it won’t be him

  2. That really is shocking! Some people have no sense of shame or honesty, it’s awful. You are a good person for helping someone you thought was in need.
