When marketing pays off.

I never - ever - give panhandlers money. But, this guy managed to get a buck out of me. And, I gave it to him happily.

I just really liked his creativity. Plus, once we made our trade. His picture for a buck - he didn't ask for more. It made me think that if they just got more creative, maybe they would make more money.

The sad signs are really played.

Love it! He definitely gets an A for creativity. I wouldn't have given him a dime, but my husband probably would have given him a fiver.

I can't stand panhandlers.

I just feel like most of them are conning me. No - maybe I can't stand them either. I hate them playing on peoples guilt. especially mine.
