Panhandlers on every street corner with cardboard signs when some are dressed better than I and when the light turns green out comes the cell phone.

And then they walk away at the end of the day and climb in their Lexus to go home!
I am tired of people who want a free ride. The younger gens who think a job should cater to them like mommy did. I want a break..now. Screw the 10 people standing in line. I want to lean on the wall and text. I want to come in to start my shift when I feel like it..and keep their job being a half hour late day after day because the store is desperate. And leave 10 minutes early cause they are tired. boo hoo.
Or leave a mess...next shift can do it.

Not sure I could deal with that at this age. Didn't handle it well when I was working but now thinking I may hurt someone because my tolerance level is not very high with bull crap.

That is why I think it might be fun to go to work again. And then see the people in stores and think..nah. I'd kill someone.
My boarder told me about a gal they hired awhile ago. She is in her 50s and VERY overweight. Works also at the casino. So...she is scheduled for 10 am, comes in at 10:30. Ok..conflict with casino so change to 11. And she shows at 11:30. Fine..noon then. And half hour late again. So this has been going on and on. She runs the drive through and loads up so no one moves til food is made. Then she can sit there and rest. The killer happened this last week or so. She was asked if she could come in on Labor Day Monday. Sure. And then never showed. When she works, she spends more time leaning on the counter with her head in her hands. Fuz had it with her coming in late. Sat she came in a half hour late at 12:30 AFTER the initial lunch rush. And punched in and immediately ordered HER lunch. Asked the guy cooking if he was doing hers. Now...they have lost workers and were doing with Fuz and 2 workers to run the whole big place. She got her food and went to the back to sit and eat. I said, so she wasnt REALLY on duty then!
And Sunday she came in late as usual. Fuz went to the back door and told her GO HOME! She said she cant afford it..he said dont care and locked the door in her face.
I dont know if she was there yesterday or not. Or quit or fired.
I see they should have never cut her slack. Now she thinks no one cares and wont get fired due to lack of employees.

Trying to figure out the difference of whom on the corner needs a few bucks or is just there taking.

It makes me so sad to pass someone by. Years ago (one possibility of what MC describes) I remember us as little children with dad in the car..if he saw someone in distress he would pull over and at least ask could they need help. I see so many today and I am to scared to stop.

Welfare recipients could work farm jobs,pick crops,sweep streets,pick up trash,work food kitchen.
Almost everyone can do something.And grandmothers that are raising kids should have to name the parents.Hunt them down and get child support.

On the radio a guy called and said he saw a panhandler, gave him his card and told him to bring his friends round to his place and he'd hire them all!

The panhandler tore up the card and said the state gives him FREE shelter, FREE clothes, FREE food, FREE medical, FREE dental, FREE EVERYTHING, but spending money and that's why he is out there. That's why I don't give to panhandlers. It's not like Biblical times when begging was their only way of making money. This guy claimed to be well taken care of by a well intentioned paternalistic big government who was probably doing more to hinder the guy than help him when it comes to getting him off the streets.

You ever see a panhandler in rags who looked under nourished? I heard a lot of these guys are feeding their addictions whether drugs or booze and some of them are just plain nuts.

Our local YMCA houses drunks,bums,criminals mentally messed up men.
No one will hire them. They get free meals at one of our two soup kitchen,free medical
care,and free food handouts.Many of them are hiding out to avoid paying child support.
We pay taxes to support these creeps!

The "Panhandler" has rec'd plenty of news attention this year. The city of Lexington, KY adopted an ordinance, even purchased a van and drove around. See a panhandler and stop to offer them work for the day. First day 11 was put to work pulling weeds and street clean up, etc. Haven't heard another word after that whether or not the program has worked. Panhandlers probably know the schedule and aren't on the corner when the van comes by. I saw one the other day and the only thing I thought about giving him was a new scrap of cardboard for his sign because the one he was holding looked like it had been drug from a dirty dumpster. I have no sympathy for them and from experience in life those that really need it are too proud to ask.

Sure hope you are a nice brown all over and not with a black stripe somewhere. If brown at the beginning (mild start to winter), black in the middle (get the snow shovel out), and brown at the end (nice end to winter). If very dark brown or black all over, better get more than the snow shovel because Baby, it's gonna be a bad time for brass monkeys.

The State of CA takes the Child support, the County keeps the $420 and gives the welfare recipient a disregard of $50 because s/he can't depend on the "dead beat" to make the rent. Every time s/he files their Earned Income Child Credit, $5,000 is paid back to the County. Go after Corporate Welfare not moms and dads that rely on "dead beat" parents to make ends meet. If my ex is labeled a "dead beat II". He needs to start paying his arrears child support.

From what I saw when visiting Oregon it's about the same. Seems it has become the common practice to change the rules instead of making the ones in place work.

We have a steady stream of state line crossings, but for the purpose of qualifying for welfare and public assistance. Stay long enough to draw their limit, then back across the line so they can apply in the next state.

Little Rock and Memphis is the merry go round for sponsored housing,stamps,and assistance.The "drums"pass along any freebies.
A few years ago,the new police chief of L.R.was handing out free turkeys to needy folks.The line Was Cadillacs,Lincolns,and new pickups.The black chief could be seen shaking his head.Has not been done again with him involved.

And they harp on the same thing like if they say it for months, it will be true. And watch 3 news stations and they cover the same crap...pull it off AP/UPI and run it at alternate minutes from the others.

That is the truth. News were supposed to be facts only. No bias. Read it as it is, dont gloss over, dont embelish, dont opine. Now too many of them think they are the new Baba Walters and crave fame. Or a talk show. With so many talking heads, who listens anymore.

The best one I've witnessed with a panhandler was at the ocean while on my favorite get away's. Balcony to my room overlooked the beach. There is a sidewalk along the sand dunes with benches so one can set a spell. This guy came every afternoon when people were walking to and from dinner. He came on an expensive bicycle and was nicely dressed and clean cut. He mostly chose the women to target but preferred them to be in small groups. This one young woman (probably mid 20's) came by and he he asked if she had any spare change. Her answer "Yes, and I even have $20". His eyes lit up. Then she said "Know how I got it? I worked for it".
