By now if you didn’t know, panhandlers make a decent living mooching off of others and have no real desire to work for the most part. The following story proves my point.
A beggar in Brighton, Michigan turned down a $10.00/hr job at a car dealership, according to a sign that was put out by the dealership to warn the public against giving him any money. The reason for his refusal? The man claims that he makes more money than any of the people at the location.
You can’t help someone who won’t help themselves, and it’s a sad day when someone turns down a full-time job (that a lot of people in this economy would absolutely jump at the opportunity to have, by the way) in favor of begging for money from strangers. Where is your dignity? Where is your pride?
The image of the sign was posted on Reddit, where it got 60,000 views. There is nothing stronger than public shaming, and hopefully it will encourage this man to re-think his life plan and pursue a more honorable line of work. I mean, who wants to retire on money they got from begging? Not me.
