    On the street that I walk to work there's an old man begging, everyday without fail in the afternoon. A little further down there's another man who 'plays a guitar' for money, the first old man says nothing but the second says hello. I don't have a problem with this kind of begging... I don't agree with it but they stay at their little spot and don't bother people who don't want to be bothered.

    What I do have a problem with is this old lady, twice I've used a certain ATM over the past couple of months and twice this old lady had come up to me shaking a tin of coins just as I've taken the money out of the machine. That's just rude imo.

    Anyone else have that experience?

    Sherlock holmes was asked to investigate the same issue. he found that the "beggar" did well in his private life. the "begging was a job" for him.

    begging is a job for many.

    begging is a lifestyle.

    drugs and alcohol, insanity and laziness are the companions of beggars.

    first level nations have no "worthy" beggars.

    second level nations have them in the "suburbs" of the largest cities.

    third world nations have them everywhere except at the presidential palace.

    Have to agree with this.
