So I was just walking down bourbon street in New Orleans and a guy came up and asked me for money. As I proceeded to give him a few bucks he punched me in the lip and took what was in my wallet.


I hate people

Whatever I'm done ranting. Cheers

People like that would tend to catch a bullet from me. Of course, I also don't give money to random people, no matter how they ask or how pathetic they might look. IF there's someone playing music on a sidewalk that I like, I might toss a few coins his/her way (times to date this has happened: zero). But some schuck walking up to me? F-no... Unless he pulls a weapon on me, he's not getting my hard-earned money.

You try to do something nice and **** like this happens....but who's to say if you hadn't started giving him money in the first place he wouldn't have gotten more physical.

Or just moved on to the next person he saw... You'll never know.

Just another reason why I tend to not like people... Luckily, the feeling is mutual.

They ask first to get you to look down. Never EVER EVER give money to beggars. It does nothing good for anyone and perpetuates the cycle.

Edit: as I typed this one of my guys called me to ask me to come over to a robbery. Kinda funny, sorry.

Airborne, my street smarts are from 40 years ago, Have things changed much? I know the beggar thing hasn't changed, but in my day you always carried $20 in case you got mugged, I assume that's about $80 now or is that too generous? Maybe $60? Theory was that you didn't want the mugger to get pissed if he was all hyped up, and nervous, and then found out you had no money.

Man, am I EVER glad I don't have to walk where there are beggars and muggers milling about. IMO, carrying around only a certain amount of cash for when they steal it from you is just bad. IF I had to do that, I'd carry only loose change in my pockets.

That happened to a friend of mine who had been in special forces. He warned the guy to leave him alone, but the dumb a$$ demanded his wallet and pulled a knife anyway. By the time the cops arrived on the scene, my buddy had the knife, the dude was pinned to a wall on the very tips of his toes, with his own knife to his throat, and when my buddy whispered into his ear "I've killed far better men that you for less" the guy lost his bowel control. The cops were pretty cool about the whole thing, but not too pleased that this guy was going to be sitting in his own feces for the ride to jail.

We have beggers here. They claim street corners. Most of them are humble and friendly. I give a buck once in awhile. They all claim to be Vets which I don't realy believe.

Hard to imagine life on the streets and begging for a dollar. Stiil. I can't help but wonder; what if it were me? Life can throw a few curveballs along the way. Glad I'm not in the sistuation those guys are and don't know what exactly I would do if I was.

I came out of a fast food place just after thanksgiving and two beggars were having a verbal confrontation over whose corner it was. I was waiting to see if they were going to throw down, as it was getting pretty heated and animated.
