Hey druggie suburbanites: Stop begging on the streets and go home

Get your parents to help you and don't waste my time.

In the past two weeks, I’ve seen two young women begging for money on the street. While neither of the young women were trustafarians, they were fairly clean and very, very stoned. It was as if someone had whispered in their ears, “If you beg for it, you will get it.”

I’m probably not going to waste any of my genie wishes on either of these women, but if I could give them advice and encouragement, I would say, “Go home.” 

 

Seriously. If you are on the street in those clothes begging and in your early 20s, beg your parents for money instead. Don’t beg me because I’m not buying your fake act and neither are the people who really need the money.
