Playing "Homeless"

Recommended Posts

a coupla weeks ago i was downtown just wandering around by myself, people watchibg. by the time midnight rolls around, i am exhausted and catch the streetcar to go home uptown. but the whole time i am sitting at the car stop, this tourist woman with her husband keeps looking at me and smiling like she feels sorry for me.

 

actually i did look pretty pathetic. i'm an emaciated lil fella and my size/face makes me look like i'm about 14 (i'm almost 19). i was also dressed like shit, sitting on the curb by myself, chainsmoking. it then dawned on me that i probably looked like an abandoned child.

 

well anyway the woman gave me $15 as she was getting off the streetcar. SHE THOUGHT I WAS HOMELESS! how sweet. i gave it back though. i am so stupid. i need to look down-bad more often.

"dumb bitch?"

 

How about "sympathetic bitch" or "caring bitch"?

 

You did the right thing giving the money back, and apparently it was your first instinct...

I once walked around all day with a sign that said "need money for strip club" I was sitting on the curb and dodging traffic. It was pretty cool, I made like 30 bucks or some.

I was on telegraph in berkeley once on a saturday morning after another infamous all-nighter. i had just gotten a cup of coffee which i set down next to me on the curb. i hadn't put the lid on yet and as i was tying my shoe, some dude drops fifty cents into my coffee. I thought that was pretty funny. He got me a fresh cup.

Because of my age and appearance

 

When I'm hiking from one jungle to the other, I get a lot of sort of yuppie-looking people who stop their cars and try to give me money. Most homeless people in Houston look like exactly what they are--alcoholics and drug addicts looking for money for more dope or booze. I think "straight" people--especially the liberals---really want to help out homeless people, but it pisses them off to get played and manipulated. It's like they are searching for a genuinely homeless person who is not a crackhead to give money to.

 

I usually carry my ruck and bindle, especially if I'm camping out for the day or the weekend, and take my dog. It must be the white beard and the dog, is all I can figure. Once on a really hot summer day, a guy stopped and gave me two Budweiser tall boys. That was pretty cool.
