Lee451: spiritplumber: ckellingc: albatros183: kling_klang_bed: There was a guy EXACTLY like that when I first moved to Hyde Park (in Chicago). For about two years straight, the guy kept saying he needed money to go see his kid who died of SIDS. Apparently he was VERY well known around there for that and being a major league heroin addict and thug prone to attacking people.

My SOP with panhandlers who say they need money for food or for a ride is to offer them a meal or offer them a ride where they need to go, or if it's too far to the nearest transit hub where I will buy them a ticket. That always gets very confused reactions, except one time, when I did get some girl back to her home. Her parents treated me like a suspected rapist instead of thanking me, but whatever.

The  church I attend used to have sandwich kits/meals (bread with a long shelf life, canned meat, dessert, simple utensils) and the homeless ministry carried them for the people who asked for money to buy food. I understand they weren't bad and seemed to be popular with many of the homeless/indigent. It supplied 2 decent sandwiches and quickly separated the truly hungry from the others.


/Waiting for the criticism because a church was involved


Why did they stop giving them out?

I hope him and this POS have the decency to run head first into a moving train.


I cannot believe you would talk about the president that way, didn't they teach you any respect for your country in school?!

Once again, a-holes take a medication that basically saves lives and find a way to abuse it no matter how much the manufacturer tries to make it tamper proof.  So that when addicts in recovery like myself go in to fill their valid prescription I have to go through a short interrogation, three pages of paperwork and advance approval of my insurance company to make sure it's alright.

rot in hell, jagload.

/would be on the streets probably without suboxone
//it's also ridiculously expensive.
