comic strip: spare change by ARCHVERMIN comic strip: spare change by ARCHVERMIN
On the subject of beggars on the street - I was once walking down Auckland CBD and a guy (I am not making this up) was holding up a sign saying"

"Ninjas have kidnapped my family. Need to raise ransom for their release. Your spare changes are appreciated"

I gave him a $2 to reward his creativity.

Actually I saw something similar but instead of kidnap, the ninjas killed his family and he needed money to train himself for his revenge...

Your story kinda reminds me of a man I saw once over at Westmorland. He looked sun burned but had a white shirt rather clean slacks and really beat down shoes I was going to give him some money when I came back until I saw him talking on a cell phone?? Hunh how could he afford a cellphone yet alone keep it charged since it appeared to have lit up?
I thought (Okay either this surprisingly clean shaven man asking for change is scamming people or he recently mugged someone OoO Eep!) I rushed my mom and I away from the man's direction as quickly as I could and made her bolt for the car.

She's so poor she couldn't even afford to learn her own language!

I can see it now, next we'll have a guy with no legs on the street holding a sign: "I have no legs and couldn't even fight in Vietnam to become a legless Vietnam veteran."
