Default Tito denies money to beggar

http://www.boxingcore.com/2009/09/30...or-being-lazy/

I agree with Tito but Tito didn't "scold" the beggar as the title likes to say.

yeah he wasn't out of line at all. Living in NYC I get hit by "homeless" ALL THE TIME and I start to resent it when I work an 8-10 hour day and then some guy asks me for money as soon as I walk out the door. I always say "sorry I don't have any extra money. my wife is out of work".

Guess i never gave it much thought, when someone askes for money and I have some, I usually give it. I'm not some great guy or anything and thats not what I mean, I just don't give a damn about money, it really means nothing to me.

I work in Laredo, TX and live in San Antonio. There's a lot of homeless who live in Laredo, San Antonio, and Austin. I never give money, but I usually have sandwiches and cold water in the car. I always give those.

One time, a guy shook his head "no" at me, lol

Claiming he didn't have it wouldn't work for Tito! While I'm no Tito fan I can understand that he can't go around giving money to everybody that ask. I wonder what the guys response would have been if Tito offered to pay him for work!

I don't give money to beggars either. Whether I have it or not.

You ever see the shows about how some of these beggars are pulling in about $100K per year? Dude wakes up in his fancy house, puts on his beggar clothes, drives his fancy car to the city, walks to a busy area and starts begging. That's basically his job and he makes killer loot. Screw them.

yeah I have seen that.

One time the same beggar made the same pitch in two different parking lots here: he needed the money for a new tire so he could get back to baton Rouge. So I asked him: didn't I see you last month at Lowe's?

I usually just tell them where the rescue mission is.

it's the whole give a man a fish, teach a man to fish thing .. but he way i see it, if me giving some spare change, extra food or whatever, hopefully it helps ... i don't know what has happened it that person's life, so i am no one to judge .. i just remember Jesus in Matthew 25 (I think) .. when I was hungry, you did not feed me .. etc ..
