Manhandling panhandler

Posted on Sat, Aug 22, 2009 at 11:15 PM

Wow. Dude on spring garden sure is agressive in his panhandling technique. He TOLD me to give him change. I told him I only had bus fare. He told me i should buy a car. Well, he should buy deodorant. For his next trick, he grabbed (!) a young girl by the shoulder and told her "Hey! don't ignore me!" Now a guy strides by with his Mcdonald's fires and he yells "You're fat (he wasn't)- you should give those to me."

Now I know some people have real problems,and that panhandling is not illegal- I suppose it's a right- but perhaps there should be a course offered on 'appropriate panhanding etiquette'.--- jus' passin' thru
