I was doing a day job when i saw the boss talking to some heifer. I finally figured out what she was up to when he gave her a handful of change.. Here she comes with a story of needing gas money because her pappy is dying. I blew a cork! I told her i heard that scam for years and that i am tired of mother fuckers trying to skin me out of money. I told her i have nobody to go to when i need money and she said if she had it she would give it it me. She finally said that there was no cause to be mean and got into a car with a friend. Fuck these assholes!!!Am i a bad man?

My way of dealing with them is as follows.

When bum approaches you asking for money tell him you will give him $50 for one of his fingers. If he wants the money he must chop it off and bring it to me. This leaves you with two possible outcomes, you either get a reputation as "that crazy guy who tried to buy my finger" and never have to deal with them again OR you get a human finger for $50. Anyway it plays out it is worth the time

As if yelling at a bum has the slightest effect at all. It was a waste of elevated blood pressure.

How come any time you hear a sob story about someone needing gas money they are always driving their 16mpg POS around while looking for gas money?

I had the same thing happen to me on Saturday.

Any San Diego arfcommer will know what area I'm talking about when I say the 'shitty part of Adams Ave'. I was getting into my truck after stepping out of a grocery store (a VONS) and a man popped up out of know where and leaned into my truck, with his hands and arms INSIDE of my truck.

I withdrew my folder and held it up in front of me––I didn't know what this man was going to do before he said anything and he was halfway in my truck.

It was reminiscent of the Walmart thread with the shouting and the commands, but I felt like I was in danger.

' BACK THE FUCK AWAY FROM MY TRUCK, RIGHT NOW '

He started to go on about me being a racist white person, yadda yadda. I checked my mirrors, puled out, and got the fuck out of there.

I dont fancy myself a hardass by any means, but I will NOT allow anyone else to put themselves inside of my truck without my permission, getting the drop on me.

I was on my way home from work the other night (I moonlight as a bouncer on Fir and Sat), and I stopped at the gas station. It is like 1:30 in the AM and this gas station is like the only one open in about a 15mi radius. As I come walking out of the store I see this bum talking to the guy who's truck is next to me asking for money for gas so he could go to who gives a fuck. After that guy told him no and left I am the only one left out there, he starts walking towards me, I acted like I did not notice him. I was OC at the time and turned just enough for him to see my 45, needless to say he did not ask me for shit.

Pretty much. I work for my money, I dont give it to random strangers, however on occasion depending on my mood I am willing to pay to be entertained. If they want some money they better atleast be willing to sing and dance "I'm a little teapot".

Last summer, I was getting gas at a Shell station by the interstate. As I finished filling my tank, a woman in a clean white Ford Excursion said something to me. Thinking she was wanting directions, I took a few steps in her direction. She then asked me for money because her kids had not eaten that day. Now, she was driving a new-looking, clean, gas-guzzling Ford Excursion. She had a female friend in the front and several kids in the back.

I told her that she might want to trade for a smaller fuel-efficient car, and her money troubles might go away. I then got in my car and left.

I got one of those at a gas station once. She just needs five bucks to be able to drive all the way to Philly, then she promises she'd mail me a check when she got there.

Well, Philly is less than 100 miles, how much fuel do you have?

Almost none.

Well you're gonna need a lot more than five bucks, aren't you?

So you'll give me more?

Well I don't have any cash, but pull your car up to the pump and I'll use my credit card for you.

Oh, well my tank is already full.

So you were lying?

No.

But then you have more than enough fuel to get to Philly if your tank is full.

Look, cracker, I just want five bucks for a pack of smokes.

Ah, and the truth comes out. I appreciate your honesty. But like I said, I don't have any cash. Have a nice day.

Fuck you.

Similar thing happened to the wife and me at a gas atation a couple of days ago. I see this guy running around to everyone who's stopped and when he comes toward us I tell him "NO..whatever it is" He begins to mumble about "already having money but just needs".. and ask him what part of " No" he doesn't understand. He looked at me like i was crazy and wandered out of the station lot.

When I see someone who is obviously going to ask me for some cash, I just beat them to the punch.

ME: Hey, do you have a couple bucks I can have.

THEM: No, sorry man.

I usually do this...

"Money? Do you sing? Dance?"

"No?, well you have to have the edge on the competition somehow, there are a lot of bums out there."

I have also been known to point to random people really far away from me and say, "I don't, but that guy over there has a bunch."

Anyone that does what she does just brushes off your insults and anger. I just tell them no, no sense in getting worked up over someone who won't care.

"All I can spare is a job application."

After saying that he didn't have any money he paid for his food in cash.
"I thought you said you didn't have any money!?"
"I don't have any money for you!"

"Can I get a little piece of scrap?"
"Hell no!" and rolls up window.

I should not have rolled down my windows before I was in motion–– this guy came out of nowhere, and barring the racist comments, it was like a spider monkey hanging in my fucking window. I dated a girl who wondered why I carry a multitool, and a folding knife. This is one of those reasons. I can't always be fully prepared for every scenario I find myself in, but god damn it––I'll try.

I'm not ballsy enough to invite the man into my life or I'd open carry. Maybe I'll get myself more knowledgeable with our carrying laws, but I just don't feel like being stopped by the police every time I go out, as the area I live in has a large Police presence.

I wish I could conceal carry.

An alternative to simply saying no could be to somehow waste their time, tell them you dont have any change on you but if they wait right there you will be back in 5 minutes, never come back.

I was walking around Lowe's in a pretty ragged mood when some guy approached me with a gift card.

"Hey man, I need gas money. I will sell you this $50 gift card for $20? I am desperate!"

I retained my composure long enough to ask him to accompany me to Customer Service to validate the card. His eyes gave him away.

I lost it, and went off like a Claymore on him right there in the Plumbing Department. My wife stunned into immobility, right in the middle of reaching into her wallet for a twenty. After I verbally beat the man, followed him to the main asile, calling him nine kinds of dirty, and three kinds of foul in less than my normally demure tone of voice, she regained her composure.

She was pissed until I explained that the guy had just stolen a gift card from the kiosk and was trying to sell us a worthless card.

She suddenly was proud. But I am still a dick.

We've got a local guy that has been hanging out at the same (high-traffic) corners for the past 5, maybe 10 years with his 'homeless' sign. Business must be good to keep him in the same spot for so many years.

I can see it if things went bad for maybe a few months, but as a career?

Generally, I say screw them.

But, there are exceptions. The other day I saw a really old worn out bum on the corner at the redlight. He looked pretty rough, more so than most. He had a sign that said "Lear Jet out of Fuel––––need bailout". I gave him a buck just for the laugh.
