We’ve all seen them before… Whether it be on the corner of a busy intersection, at the entrance or the exit of a shopping plaza, standing out among-st tourist locations, or mingling side by side with a cramped crowd of travelers at subway and bus stations at all over – panhandlers are just about everywhere!  What I’m curious to know is, what do you do when you see someone asking for money?  When you can’t avoid passing someone who says they are just asking for just a little bit of monetary help?

Some people just simply ignore the beggars, as some would call them, altogether.  They look straight ahead and will try not to even glance at the person while passing by.  Others will empty their car tray of coins and simply pass on whatever loose change that they can find.  And then there are some curious fellows that may just stop and take the time to talk to some of these people – curious to why that person is in the situation that they are in, before deciding to hand out any money at all.
