I didn't want to get anything started in a question/answer scenario, so I thought I'd take this to the appropriate forum where the question had been asked.
The question was: Do You Give Money to Panhandlers.
http://hubpages.com/question/116673/do- … anhandlers
You can read my answer here. But in the event that links to questions aren't allowed and the link is removed, I will sum up my answer by saying that no, I do not give money to panhandlers. I have been on both sides of the fence before and I am also currently homeless.
Justom's response to me: justom says
I help without judgment and find NateSean's rant to be a great comedy skit. Brother you sound like a goofball. Sorry for your homelessness but at least you brought your laptop with internet access :-P Oy!
So, apparently it's funny that I'm homeless. And yes I did have my laptop for a time, but that died out on me and I can't afford to have it even looked at. So my Internet Access is limited to the computers at the library, thank you very much.
The laptop was something I bought back when I had the money and I was financially stable enough to be able to afford such a luxury. It was something I earned because I had a well paying job and I was stable in my apartment and circumstances.
So of course everyone will likely weigh on the subject of homelessness and panhandling here. But my response to Justom is this: Good for you. You hand money out without judgment. I hope you're happy with the idea that most of that money is going to get spent on booze and tobacco. But don't you sit there and judge me because of my life decisions.
I don't care who it is. If they ask for money and I have change I give it to them. Would give them cash if I had any.
Justom's response to yet another question I wrote and answered: "I figured folks who trash someone else in forums (backstabbers) probably do wear them, so childish."
I just want to point out that to "backstab" someone, you first have to have a working relationship with that person. I have no such relationship with you.
You made an insulting response to my legitimate one and I reacted to it in the appropriate manner. You're continuing in this matter only proves that age does not equate maturity.
Oh and that blue grass may be great, you probably shouldn't be smoking it.

If you found yourself homeless, I mean homeless to the point of no job, no car, no home, no family and no friends. What would be the first thing you would do to start being a survivor?

If its wrong then they should comment in reply otherwise the person will never learn. If its rude ok that's a good reason. Some people must have nothing better to do with their lives.

I noticed in my activity stream and accolades that it says I have answered 10 requests. If that means that I have written 10 hubs in response to user 'Questions' I'm quite sure that is wrong. The real number would be 1,...
