I always see these homeless kids, barefoot, and barely clothed. When I see this and I can spare 20-40 pesos to buy 1-3 of these kids each for a hotdog and a bottle of water, I do so.
So I’m walking by this convinence store where there’s usually 2 extremely young kids along with a teenager begging passerbys for money. I’m looking around for them hoping I could buy them a meal, nowhere to be found so I continue walking.
The teenager I’ve given him free meals over a dozen times since I’ve been here, tried sneaking up while walking down a noisy main road to pick pocket.
I caught a glimpse of a figure, weaving between cars, leer at me. I watched his shadow creep up on me from the corner of my eye. I turn my head and caught him making a low reach for my back pocket. His eyes on the prize he didn’t notice my turned head, then when he does, He smiles and says “sir please pesos.” it wasn’t a friendly smile but one of those fake smiles flips make when you confront them about a problem. I tell him to get lost. If he wanted a meal he should have just called out. Instead the flip wanted a chance at my wallet that I keep in my side pockets for this exact reason.
Am I a fool for buying these worst off kids meals? If I was a fool I would give them money so they can give it to their worthless parents or go find some other begger kids and play gambling games.
The audacity of this flip kid to even try. Im going to grant retribution by buying the younger kids meals while leaving him out. Will they share Food with the pick pocket? Nope because I’m going to sit my ass down and watch them eat it and give them no other option. Flip style retribution. Next time I’m in that area I’m going to point his ass out to the door security of the stores. The employee of the convinence store is going to get a kick out of this story when I tell them as I usually ask the employees themselves to serve them and I would pay for it.
More and more shenanigans the longer you interact with these people.Published in
