Healthy Street Beggars Can Screw Off

Yep, I'll say it. I hate them. It bothers me that some people have mental issues that can place them in these positions, etc and I do believe they need help but the rest of you can f*ck right off. I almost hate to say it but GET A F*CKING JOB! When

Yep, I'll say it. I hate them. It bothers me that some people have mental issues that can place them in these positions, etc and I do believe they need help but the rest of you can f*ck right off.

I almost hate to say it but GET A F*CKING JOB! When I get approached by a healthy younger person begging for change/cigarettes/whatever on Barrington or Spring Garden I just feel like stuffing a fist down your throat. Work sucks for all of us you know so why the hell should I give you anything at all? We all make sacrifices and have to deal with shite at times so I really do not give a flying f*ck if you want to wear 10 nose rings or dye your hair three shades of purple. Get a job that allows that sort of dress. I know they exist because I have had friends that did it and who incidentally have enough self respect to not act like filthy street urchins bothering people for quarters.

You're all a bunch of stinking unwanted parasites cluttering up the streets and making what should be an enjoyable walk somewhere, an exercise in avoiding human scat. It seems obvious that if you truly wanted to, you would be working to change your life - get a job, get help for possible addictions, etc and there are programs out there for free. I am sooooo tired of hearing about the "plight of the poor street kids" when I recognize some of you as having been begging for the past 6-8 years. You can't make any progress at all in that time?

I hope someone at City Hall grows enough balls to get you away from the rest of us. Life rots for us all at times but the rest of us are not here to assist your apparently chosen lifestyle indefinitely.
