Mister Groonk

...that's the stuff!

Jennifer Lankenau

You are SO L.A.

SassyGirl

"I'd rather have some change" translates into "The Twinkies will be rejected by my crack-addicted body, so the change is much more appreciated." What, me, stereotypical? Nahhh...

I never give panhandlers money. I did give them a whole pizza from Crazy Dough's once though...but mainly because it was easier than taking it on the subway.

AJ

Groonk-- Your turn.

Jenn-- Like, totally. Have your girl call my girl and we'll do sushi.

Sassy-- Your political incorrectness is most welcome around here. :-)

Pauly D

With some CGI, that sequence could make an award winning short!

LisaBinDaCity

A TWINKIE? No wonder he turned you down ;-)

justin

Niiice. Reminds me of this classic movie scene...

"How about you sideburns? You want some of this milk?"

"I'd rather have a beer."

AJ

PD-- Is Peter Jackson available to direct the CG sequence?

Lisa-- What?? Twinkies are awesome!! Almost as good as CHOCODILES. MMmmMmMmmMm...

Justin-- O'Doyle rules.

melanie

I would happily take your twinkies...

oh, but does remind me of when i handed a guy a sandwich and then he asked me what kind it was. When I replied ham, he said he was a vegetarian...

homeless in seattle.

Blackie

Chocodiles Oh man that is some serious flashback material.
Great, now I have to drive all over East Jesus and see if I can find some.
Hell, we are so far out in the boonies, we have to head towards town to hunt.

Hummm, Amazon... maybe EBay....
/me searches

BTW, you are cold cold bastige.
just saying

claire

Tis the season, indeed. :]

This reminds me of a guy I used to work for in SF. The following sums up one of his favorite anecdotes:

Homeless Guy: Spare change?

Leo: Nah, man. All I got is hundreds.

You've got a ways to go before you hit the big time, AJ. ;]

Rabbit

My last exchange with a homeless man (when I was living in Hartford and doing theatre for a "living") . . .

Homeless Man: Hey there hon, can you spare a dollar?

Me: I'm sorry, sir. I don't have any money.

Homeless Man: Just one dollar.

Me: Seriously, I don't have ANY money.

Homeless Man (becoming belligerent): Look, I haven't eaten in THREE days.

Me: Neither have I. Suck it up.

Jules

is this true or are you trying to write a script? LOL....put some jelly sandals on the homeless guy and give him a hefty bag and name him Hippie homeless guy

AJ

Melanie-- I bet the homeless in Seattle only drink gourmet coffee.

Blackie-- http://www.freshchocodiles.com/

Claire-- Stick around a bit. I'm just getting started. ;-)

Rabbit-- But if you gave him food, he'd be just as annoyed.

Jules-- No, this happened. I thought writing the story in script form might be a fun way to present it.

Stacy

Next trip, will ya pick me up some hostess cupcakes? The one with the free third cupcake! And don't go giving my third cupcake to the homeless either!

sandra

A friend of mine once tried to buy Wendy's (mmm, Frostee...) for a homeless guy. Well, I suppose she succeeded in BUYING the food...but the exchange didn't go so well. She returned to her house with ketchup on her face and pickles in her hair. Apparently the homeless man was a vegetarian. Seriously.

Jacquie

So it seems that most homeless people are picky when it comes to what they eat? Whats up with that?

I think I will blog about my experiences with this instead of taking up space in your comments.

PS, I love the comment about Change comes from within! I am going to have to remember that one next time I'm in the city!

Jeopardyjen

I took a homeless girl out for lunch once. She Hoovered up a Quarter Pounder (with cheese), her fries, my fries, her milkshake and half of my Sprite, both apple pies and the pack of cookie pucks I was saving to prop up my bookshelf. Then she tried to hit me up for booze. sigh.

nic

Panhandling can be alittle tricky. One must remain polite and respectful no matter how desperate. There's a big difference between "Got any spare change?" and "Could you (please) spare some change?" The second question is much more likely to actually get you some because, as we all know, there is no such thing as spare change. Jeopardyjen ... that was really nice of you. She will remember that for a long time. An after-lunch cocktail would have been nice, too. Seriously, what the hell? The whole thing made you feel pretty good, didn't it?
