This may or may not be unpopular.
This happened to me this morning and it made me really uncomfortable.
I HATE when I go to McDonald's or some other fast food place and i'm in the drive through and a homeless person is right at the speaker (where you order) or right at the window (where you get your food) begging for change.
First of all I feel REALLY guilty, buying food in front of him and NOT giving him something and second, he's asking for CHANGE and turns down offers to buy him food.
This McDonald's is right by my work and I often stop for a coffee or something in the mornings and he is ALWAYS there. I've offered to buy him breakfast, and he says no that he just needs the $$ for bus fare to get wherever (it's always a different story).
And it makes me super duper uncomfortable. Plus, he's really creepy, and is like AT your window of your car, you can hardly order your food and pick it up.
So, this isn't a "no food for poor people" because I would TOTALLY buy him breakfast, but I just refuse to give away money in a situation like that. KWIM?
