Meth much?

As I walk down Spring Garden Road, I will get asked for 'spare change' at least half a dozen times. During the summer months, the frequency of requests increase. Being annoyed from this, I ignore them. However I have seen one panhandler in particular

As I walk down Spring Garden Road, I will get asked for 'spare change' at least half a dozen times. During the summer months, the frequency of requests increase. Being annoyed from this, I ignore them. However I have seen one panhandler in particular who displays a large sign which advertises his apparent condition of having colon cancer. I felt badly for this man and gave him some change. On the same day of my donation to him, I walked into a public washroom and witnessed this very individual shooting-up in front of the mirror. Aside from the fact that he doesn't know how to use the lock on the bathroom door, or even how to clean up his own arm-blood off the walls, this man became angry toward me for my intrusion into this 'public' washroom. So at the end of the day I am confident in knowing that I have helped fund this poor man's meth addiction.
