How to Get My Money - The Successful Beggar
Current mood: generous
Category: generous Life

I'm not one to hand out cash to a stranger  Seriously, I'm more likely to toss gold Krugerrands into a public fountain than to hand out a crumpled dollar bill to a greasy guy with a a shifty story.  [and remember, that dollar is now worth about half a femtogram of that gold!]  It doesn't really matter what the story is, but a beggar should note that I know what the cheap liquor goes for, so when one asks for *exactly* seven dollars - the line about kids needing dinner ain't gonna fly.

The other evening, a fellow approched me outside a grocery store (the Cherrydale Ingles), as I was loading the car.  He walked purposefully across the lot from one corner by the highway, turning straight toward me halfway across.  Getting closer, he starts to talk at me, but keeping a respectful distance.  I decide to give the guy one chance to tell his story. 

He's dirty, but in a working-under-a-truck-all-day way, not a never-heard-of-a-bathtub way.  He gives me a name, says he's from Texas.  He tries to show me some cards from his pocket, including an out-of-state driver's license.  He explains that he's staying at a hotel just around the corner, and shows me an electronic hotel door key (the generic Domino's ad type).  He's asking for just enough cash to get 'a gallon of gas'. 

Well, he could be legit.  I don't know.  I can't be bothered to care.  But then he throws in the line that clinches the deal.  He fans the stack of cards again and says,

"That dumb bitch left me every card *but* the gas card."

While remembering all the times I discovered that my ex had 'borrowed' items from my wallet, such as when standing in a hotel in St Louis trying to get a hotel for the week, in front of my co-workers who were there for the same convention...  or having a state champion shooter take us to the range for a lesson - and then making him pay...  I fished out a five dollar bill and wished the fellow well.

I guess Robert should consider himself lucky that I don't like credit cards :P
