So I am on vacation, and some bum (young with many piercings and tattoos) today in Seattle keeps pestering my brother and I for change. After we told him nicely three times we didn't have any, I turned to him in a jumping, spinning fashion towards his group of flunkies and sang, "No no no no no no no no no" (whatever that song is). He proceeds to start cursing at me as I walk in to McDonald's. I told him to fuck off. So we get cheap dinner, exit, and the fucker pursues us. "Hey you need to take my fucking advice and be nicer." I told him I would consider this and told him he needed to hear some advice of my own: "Get a job bitch!" In retaliation, he says, "What was that last word? Your momma's pussy lips!" I just smacked my ass in his general direction and told him he should try entering my hotel and see what happens. Now, I in no regards recommend acting like an asshole to the homeless, but it seems lately the bums I encounter have a sense of entitlement, like I am supposed to pull out my wallet and let them have at it. I've frankly gotten sick of it and simply tell bums "No" when I am asked about spare change. They seem to get annoyed with me, but I simply do not feel like handing out freebies to some broke down idiot who can't come up with any better idea to better his or her situation than sitting on some street corner asking people for handouts in a rude fashion. So how do you deal with bums asking for money? Do you play the old "I use my debit card" line, give them some meager penance, or tell them to fuck off? I've helped out nice bums in the past, but lately the bums I've encountered are rude and deserve nothing more than a smack to the face. I guess it depends on the situation.
