What is the lamest story told to you by a panhandler?
OK. We have all been approached. Some legit. Others have signs that say "why lie, need beer'. I tell them to make me laugh if they want money. But what is the LAMEST stupidest story you have heard on the street. Oh BTW check out this pic, - Got to admit - they had a 'niche' - er -ahem.
I think about the best one was the truth, "I'm going to buy beer and cigarettes." But I had to say, that picture is hilarious. If that started coming up to our cars all over America, we'd have a real epidemic of road rage.
I once saw a man on Venice Beach with a sign that said "family killed by pigeons: need BB gun to exact revenge."
Also the guy outside my old school with the sign "vietnam vet: will work for food" when he was quite clearly no older than 19.
I once had a guy ask me for $30 so he could take the bus home. I asked him where the hell do you live?
I had a guy ask me for bus fare. When I offered to give him a ride, he quickly declined.
It's not so much a story as an experience. I was going to McDonalds and a guy on the street had a "need money for food" sign. I told him I would buy him something from McD's. He says "I don't eat that crap! I'm vegetarian!"
