I’ll give a beggar food, but not money. That’s why.

Funny story. A guy came into the Firehouse one day panhandling. One of the Firefighters , a black guy, really nice guy good Fireman, nice man,told him if he was hungry he would fix him some soup.

The Firefighter sat the guy down fixed him some soup, and just as the panhandler sat down to eat it we got a run.

When we came back the Firefighters shoes were gone, and the soup was still on the table. I won’t soon forget the Firefighter walking the streets in his long boots looking for the guy who stole his shoes.

When I was young and naive, I decided to buy handkerchiefs for the homeless on the streets of downtown New Orleans where I worked. I thought they would appreciate that someone thought of them at Christmas. Boy was a dummy I was. They most probably said nasty things when I walked off. You can’t spend or drink a handkerchief:-). I have learned.
