You'll see a couple holding a sign, with a dog wearing a blue bandanna. You go into the store, and 45 minutes later when you come out, there's a different guy, no woman, and the exact same dog. Sometimes they'll even change the bandanna to a different color.

They meet up at the van around lunch time, probably to turn over their earnings, then go back out, only to be rounded up at the end of the day.
Couple years ago we were walking down the strip in Vegas, there was a woman standing behind a man sitting in a wheelchair begging, a few hours later going back to our hotel... yep, now he was standing behind her sitting in the wheelchair.
I have only once gave a beggar any money, a guy at an exit ramp held a sign stating; why lie, I want a beer.

I stopped for food one day for myself and noticed a guy across the street with a sign. I bought a couple extra cheeseburgers. He seemed disgusted when I handed him the sack. Hardly thankful at all. That's when I found out that moneys talks and burgers walk.

in Akron ohio the beggars have to register and receive a license that the wear around their neck.........funny I haven't seen any licenses this spring .
I will stop at the red light and hand them a rolled up" Obama 1 million dollar bill" some laugh and others curse me , down in Daytona a girl had a sign stating she was pregnant and was found to be a pillow.
these people really think we owe them money good god I hope these suburban yuppies wake up to the scam!

I was wondering why the frisbee was getting bigger........then it hit me!

I always thought the "I before E except after C rule was "weird" , but "Scientist" disagree ?

EVERY TIME I FIND THE KEY TO SUCCESS......SOMEBODY CHANGES THE LOCK!

I'm guessing if I gave money to a licensed beggar, I'd probably ask for a receipt.
