lucidly said: Dirty as hell and I never get sick. The “worst” you treat your body the more impervious it is to thing such as the common cold.
I’m interpreting this as an implication for us to roll around in the mud together. :)
It’s kind of been a long day and all I want is awesome live music and a sexy jazz man to serenade me and I don’t think I’m even going to get that :(
No more “i dont carry cash/i dont have change.”
Ive started saying, “i dont give away money”.
I also never end it with sorry, because I’m not. I am not obligated to share my earned money with you. I have 120 thousand in debt, we have our own finacial problems. Yours are not mine and mine are not yours.
This mentality fucked the world up.
You can go fuck yourself too.
I had a guy get mad at me the other day for not giving him money, because he didn’t want to believe that I was unemployed.
I also had a guy once be extremely rude for giving him a really expensive granola bar, when his sign said he was simply hungry.
I’m sorry, I know not every person is a jerk, an addict, a phony, whatever, but I’ve had so many bad encounters with people when I too am struggling, and have a medical condition in which I have to eat food that is more fucking expensive, and I don’t have the energy, time, or money.
At least Alyssa has shared a legitimate reason. Which, thank you for that because I totally agree and I’ve seen it. But I’ve also seen homeless men and women standing outside with their dog or puppy or the only “friend” in the world who are embarrassingly happy to accept a miniscule few pennies. Obviously, it is extremely situational - but none the less.
It kills me when people post controversial things knowing that others are going to respond in some sort of way and when they do they don’t make any effort to retort in a mature, educational manner. I don’t understand why people simply refuse to follow up and/or take time to communicate. It’s not about obligations, because I can bet some of you are thinking “I don’t owe anyone a response”; and no, you don’t… but it’d be nice if every now and then we could look past what is “owed” or what is “fair” and just be a decent human being. Who knows, maybe it might make the next person think twice before snapping like a fool for no good reason. A lot of these homeless people are mistreated vets or suffering the aftermath of a disgustingly unsupportive (often times abusive) upbringing. Not everyone knows how to be as strong as others and be confident and motivated enough to try to make better of themselves. If nothing else have some fucking sympathy.
Please don’t get me wrong - I don’t give money or food to every begger I see but I’m not going to let the rotten ones make me frustrated to the point of ignorance and stereotyping.
