Hobo!

There was this lady, around christmas time last year, outside wal greens. she came up to us like she wanted directions, so we listened. she told us how she was from colorado springs, her transmission failed, and they quoted her 8,000 and are charging her 12,000, she has a 14 year old and a 1 year old and they need money 2 get home.

the funny thing is, what about ATM cards? hmm? i never thought of that...


Yesterday, wonders have it, that i ran into the lady in the wal mart bathroom. she had the EXACT same story...months later...hmm...

hmmmm almost sounds like maybe she was making up a story to get some money? or do you actually think it was a legitamite story? maybe she didn't have money in her atm card, or she was straight out lying, its weird though, did she go and tell you the same story again when you saw her yesterday? :-P

the exact same thing happened to me one time. only it was a guy that said he was an ex-soldier that had come back to find his family on the street etc etc, except the second time I saw him all the names of his daughters changed.

Besides...
Transmissions don't cost $12,000. Anywhere. Or $8,000 for that matter. Sure they're expensive, but not THAT expensive.

You know, I was on vacation and a women came up to me asking for money. I really do not remember the reason, but she said she had kids. I guess people this is more common than I thought. My mom always told me never give money to strangers on the street. Buy them a meal, or pay for a change of clothes, help find shelter if they want, etc.
