So, do you think that makes me an a-hole? Because I’m not. I’ve donated more to charity than most people will in a lifetime. What it makes me is not a sucker.
Let Me Explain
The following series is a set of photographs of some beggars in China. A reporter followed them around and took pictures of them at work.
At first we see a man who appears to be practically near death being cared for by his loving wife. So many people feel bad for them and stop to help.
After a little while, they get up to move to another location.
Here they are, back at work again.
After a while, I guess they have to set something up for their next score?
Then they are on the move again.
This time, to grab a decent meal before they go “back to work”.
I know, you’re thinking this is not common, right? WRONG!
Here are two different stories from the US of undercover TV reporters documenting the reality behind begging and panhandling in America. If you do a search, you’ll find plenty more!
How to Be a Great Beggar
Now, a video that tells you everything you need to get out there and start earning today! Just trade in your dignity for some cold hard cash.
So, what’s the bottom line here? Did you hear the lady who works for the homeless shelter tell you – do not give panhandlers money? I mean that kind of says it all. But hopefully you now understand why.
I know that when you see them your mind is racing. “I wonder what’s wrong? How did they get that way? I feel sorry for them.” But as long as you are aware that they are working hard to engineer that response from you, you can resist it!
People who start begging become addicted to the easy cash, and very rapidly stop even trying to accomplish any noble goal they had before they started. So next time, just ignore them or tell them you only donate to national charities.
