Very well. Then I shall raise a glass of rum, and let's hope it works out.

If they asked for one of my kidneys, would I give it to them? The answer, no. Earn your own money or suffer.

this is exactly what i ment when i said '' keep the BS away ''

what if she was going to bring them to school but had no transportation? i have adult friends like that it saddens me
what if her kid was sick & was taking them to the doctors?

there are almost endless possibilities.

Therefore let it be known that at this time the leftist and the conservative(?) did find peace among themselves, and that the stereotypes of the SJW and the Fascist did die. CR Forums shall never be the same*.

*Yes, they fucking will.

We can specify what funding is allocated for, but true enough: we can't specify funding for everything. Best that discount or free bus passes be distributed, so that individuals may decide individually what their time on the bus is spent moving toward.

Yes and no.
The people who specify why they need it i give it to, If i have any spare change of course.

Some random guy at a best buy parking lot approached me and asked me for money. He specified he needed it for gas, so i gave him all the spare change i had which was like $6.00. He was very appreciative about it.

The people i don't give money to are drug addicts. I don't want to be responsible for someone overdosing and dying on heroin, crack, etc...

I will although give to the poor and the homeless any spare change i can hand them.

Edit: To answer your question YES i would, because if that was me i knew i'd be f*cked and my last option would be to ask someone and i'd want someone to give it to me.

It is rare for me to hand out money any more. Maybe its because I've seen some who look as if they're drug users sitting right next to ATM machines begging for spare change. If they're targeting people at cash machines then it's not "spare "change their looking for, its notes.


As for money for travel fare, I once walked the 3 miles round trip to a doc's appointment when I was hard up. On my way out a person at a bus stop begged me for money for their bus fare. I shook my head and continued my 1 1/2 mile trip back home thinking why didn't they try walking like I was. I have given a flustered woman some change when she found she hadn't enough to pay her train fare. She asked for less than a £

If someone was desperate enough to ask for money and they had a very good reason for it, I'd help them out. I wouldn't avoid/ignore them just because I don't know them, they probably needed it more than I did anyway.

I would give them money if people want to take advantage of someones generosity thats on them and I pity them more than it angers me. I would hate to think someone was starving or dehydrated and I did nothing to help them. The minute you stop being generous because someone MIGHT take advantage is the moment you start overlooking those who are truly in need.

If they're a begger or not, using the money in good use or not, if I can give them even $2, I will gladly hand it to them. It's the type of person that I am, I always help others in need. I don't want to walk away from someone who actually needed it. Who knows why they started begging for change?
