Srsly. I need some halp.
So theres this burger place like near my house that I love going to late at night because I have the munchies but I notice that all around my city theres quite a bit of bums.
I’m originally from North Carolina so there might have been a few here or there every once in a while. Down here (Atlanta) they are everywhere, they even get on the subway to beg how they do it I have no idea. Bums will walk around the DRIVE THROUGH at resturants asking for money. Also I’ve noticed there are a lot of gay bums in atlanta, creepy dirty men who imply that they will do disgusting girl things to you for money, lets just assume these people have the AIDS virus too.
And they always want a stupid amount of money with stupid ass lies. Like “aye can i get 50 cents I just wanna get a hamburger”
I dunno. Its so many of them here I dont feel bad anymore, but I still dont know how to respond to these people because they make me uncomfortable. Like I used to say “I dont have cash” but then last night the idiot goes “how are you buying food”, and instantly I realized he didnt want a burger because if that were the case it didnt matter how I paid for it, none the less what do you New Yorkers do or any other city with lots of aggressive homeless bums?
Ignore? Blow them off?
Headphones dont work, they will try to touch you. Cars dont work, they will walk up to your window.
I have a friend that shoos them off like wild animals with “GET! …SHOO!..GONE!” (and stuff like that) and I dont have enough confidence for that but it seems to work and they get angry.
Its just hard to feel bad for bums, when lots of people are in a struggle these days. Many people are a paycheck from being homeless themselves, why homeless people think that people who have money are much better off is ridiculousness.
EDIT: I’m off to get a burger, I’ll take pictures if I get approached by any scary bums.
