I never give to charity any longer. I use to give most of my income to charity. All I got back from this world was heartache and abuse. Sometimes being a good person makes others hate you. I am tired of being hated.

The Hispanic man probably has a difficult time with work and staying afloat in this economy. He knows full well that black people are nothing but a burden and he was probably angry that you were helping out the same people who cause all the problems.

Soon Hispanics will lose everything and going back Mexico will be a better option.

For those who do not think the government of the United States cannot collapse you are wrong. It can and will. It is time to say fuck it and get revenge.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28664208


You are seriously deluded if you think/believe that BLACK people are the problem! I happen to know that it is the HISPANIC/read: LATINO problem that is wrecking the state of Cali! It's the blacks that are losing everything, including their jobs, homes, bank accounts, etc. I see it happening every day! Just walk into any restaurant/bank/office and you will see that the majority or all of the workers there are LATINO! Even the whites are losing their jobs. Now don't get me wrong - I'm not against people getting good jobs and having good homes and family .... I'm just against ANY racial majority hogging it all. Guess the 'food chain' is well in evidence: first it was Whites at the top, followed by Asians, then Blacks, Hispanics and lastly American Natives. NOW it is LATINOS/Hispanics, Whites, Asians, Latinos, Native Americans and lastly blacks. Latinos - more specifically Mexicans - are not about to go back to Mexico as it has become clear that California, and primarily Los Angeles, is the NEW Mexico!

For the poster I am responding to --- WATCH OUT! Some day you may be in the SAME position of begging for dollars out on the street, in part from your own karma of misjudging others and of having a racial outlook that only helps to cause more damage than to understanding the workings of our current society! At that time, I truly hope you will beg forgiveness from God for your callous statements and wrong-way thinking! Good luck to you, sir!

Re: Just Got My Ass Chewed Out At Laundry Mat For Giving A Black Girl Some Change
I was minding my own business putting clothes in a dryer, when a young black girl approached me and asked if she could have a dollar for the bus. Normally, I don't make a habit out of giving money to strangers because I am asked too often and would be broke if I gave to everyone that asked. But it is Christmas Eve and she really looked like she needed it. So I gave her two dollars worth of quarters and wished her good luck.

Then this hispanic older man asked me if I knew "how bad the economy was?" I replied that yes, I was well aware. And then he proceeded to chew me out for giving the girl money. He said I was part of the problem and he was talking really loudly so everyone could hear. I just rolled my eyes and laughed and turned around to finished putting quarters in the machine.

The girl who asked for the money somehow heard this and started saying something to the man, then he began to yell at her telling her that she was probably on welfare and had babies at home she couldn't take care of. Then they yelled some other stuff I couldn't make out to each other.

Before I left, I made sure to wish the man a Merry Christmas.

Me and the girl both made our way out the front door and she looked extremely upset. I told her not to worry about it and some people were just scrooges. She looked like she was going to cry. I felt sorry for her.

Maybe I am part of the problem by giving change when I feel compelled to. But I certainly would hate to live in a world where no one helped anyone else ever. I think we need to help when we feel compelled. And on this Christmas Eve I felt compelled.

Fuck Mr. Scrooge.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27747263


You did right OP. eff him. Part of the problem" lol. So this loser spending Christmas eve in the laundry mat gets to define what "the problem" is? And no, it's not azzholes like him making others people feeling like sht being a bully, but its someone who needs to get a bus ride and the person who "enabled" her. Why is that a problem because it makes selfish fcks like him feel GUILTY because he is too selfish to part with his PRECIOUS 8 quarters because they are HIS and no one dare take ANY of it from him or even SUGGEST it. Those who have a household income of 50k or more are richer than 98% of the world population. Do a search to prove it if you don't believe.

Re: Just Got My Ass Chewed Out At Laundry Mat For Giving A Black Girl Some Change
Your thread post is ironic for me; I gave a white man money to get on the bus, a few months ago. I had to go pay my car insurance and when I was getting back into my car in the company's parking lot, he walked over to me and said he was short on change for the bus and asked, very politely, if I could spare some.

I gave him all the money I had in my pocket at the time, which was about seven dollars, and some coins.

A month ago, a white woman rolled up beside me at the gas station and literally begged me to give her some money for gas. She said she had lost her job (downsized out) and had spent her last dime on food, and her tank was on E. I had watched her asked a white man for money before she approached me, and he gave her an impatient look, shook his head no, and drove off. Funny thing was, she didn't look like your typical "beggar"; she was clean and slightly dishevled, but she looked weary. She had a Jersey accent too, which was the first thing I actually noticed (I live in Atlanta).

I told her I wouldn't give her the money, but I would pay for the gas for her, and she looked SO relieved! I felt so sorry for her. The two gas clerks inside (they were from Ethiopia) saw the whole exchange and one was shocked that I put $25 gas in the woman's car because I didn't know her.

I wish I could have bought more for her, but unfortunately I live on a tight budget myself, and was buying twenty-five bucks worth of gas for my own car at the time.

AND, just recently, I was coming off the highway and saw a black man standing on the side of the road, holding a sign that read: I'm hungry. Please help.

So I picked him up, drove to my bank, and withdrew $100 and gave it to him. (I know, I probably shouldn't have let him get into my car, but he looked too tired to do anything but sit there, which is wxactly what he did.)And he was so thankful. After I dropped him off, I cried all the way home...

Trust me: Doing things for others in need ALWAYS returns to you. I'm living proof of that.

And good for you. I'm a black lady and I say thank you for helping her.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10164827


That one is a common ruse, used to see it all the time. However, offering to buy her gas was the right thing to do.

If someone asks for money because they are hungry I generally offer to buy them something to eat. You would be surprised at how many people have turned me down and acted annoyed because I didn't give them green.

Other posters are right when they say to trust your gut. It is never a bad thing to try to help someone. I also met a homeless guy once and he told me he needed money for a drink because he was starting to get sick.

Knowing that someone who drinks regularly can die trying to detox on their own can kill them I got him some booze. At least he was honest with me, I could see his hands shaking and knew he was in bad shape.

She could have folded your clothes for that money.
She would learn the value of a dollar, and not to depend on handouts.
It was a good jesture op, I just would have handled the situation differently.

LOL for fcking 8 quarters? This person is going to "learn" from this "lesson" huh. What a joke.

People who say money givers (to people who actually have to BEG strangers for it, think about that when's the last time any of you computer internet-warriors HAD to do that?)

are part of the problem" are actually saying "you make me look bad because it means I have to psychologically deal and justify why I don't. and why I'm a selfish azzhole and value 8 quarters so much".

People very rarely will tell you they want to buy drugs or alcohol. It's always "for the bus, for the train, to buy a sandwich." I know someone (not my uncle) who told a homeless man, after he asked for money to buy a sandwich, that he will go with him to the deli and buy him a sandwich. The "homeless" man actually said "Nah, I've changed my mind."

With that said, OP, you get credit for being kind.

foe those looking to backlash against the system try looking at the people who cause poverty. bankers and politicians.

let them take out their volatility on them.

I actually find this episode pretty interesting and it shows where we are headed. There is a strong backlash arising towards those on welfare and the poor in general. So much so that it pisses some people off to see poor people given money. I hate to think what is going to happen when this gets worse.

I saw the girl storming out of the laundry in near tears. If I hadn't said anything to her, she would have diffused that anger and rage someplace else because of that man's meanness towards her. She may still do that. Maybe she will vandalize something or break into a car. Maybe she won't. But I saw her anger.

We are living in such volatile times that I am surprised I don't see stuff like this more often really.

That's what I was thinking, because the OP was first putting quarters in the machine when he gave her the money and the Hispanic guy started yelling at him. She was still hanging around when he left.

Could she have been waiting around for a scheduled bus time and the time of the bus coming happened to be at the same time as the OP was leaving? If I hadn't seen many scams before I might think so.

Maybe I am part of the problem by giving change when I feel compelled to. But I certainly would hate to live in a world where no one helped anyone else ever. I think we need to help when we feel compelled. And on this Christmas Eve I felt compelled.

Fuck Mr. Scrooge.

WHy would he care what you do with your money?

I probably wouldn't have given her any cash, but if I had, and the dude got in my face, I'd have told him to fuck off...

WHat does he care what you do with your money?

"Fuck Mr. Scrooge." Indeed. You did everything right, IMHO.

How kind of you.

Love that people haven't lost their humanity just yet.

I recall the time I lived in a majority white neighborhood. I was at the grocery store putting my bags into my car as a young white girl approached me. I wondered what she wanted, but not for long. She asked me, a black woman mind you - a butch looking one at that, lol, if I had some change so she could buy her baby some diapers.

Initially, I was shocked, for one, that she approached me out of all the other people in the lot - all others were white, but in that moment I felt completely compelled to give from my heart. And so I did.

I gave her my last $5 and felt wonderful after doing so. She was very thankful. I don't know if she hadn't had any previous luck, but the fact that she asked me told me one thing: she needed it. I was the ONLY black person around, I kid you not.

Race matters NOT, and most importantly, it matters LEAST when giving from the heart to someone in need.

Thank you for being kind, OP. People like you make the world go round.

Thank you for not judging that young girl, and for being kind to the man that verbally attacked you for doing so.

You're a good person.

screw screwge.

Bitter old fart.

And who GIVES a shit what she spent it on. It's exactly like loaning money to people. Don't loan it, just give what you can spare. If they can't pay you back, well, consider it in your mind as a gift. Loans are bad news. Feelings get hurt, and friendships and family relationships get ruined.

Anyways, good on you, op, for doing what your heart compelled you to do.

Once, an old man, really skinny and ollllddd, used to show up at the swings. His English wasn't great, but I understood a tiny bit. He would motion his fingers to his mouth.He was hungry! I never knew where he lived. He'd just show up at the swing park in front of our house, and sit and look at the ground.

Finally I would start bringing out a sandwich every day to him. He would smile, cry, etc....Turns out, the assholes that were supposed to be caring for him, were cashing his SS checks, and letting him starve. They went to jail, and he went to a home. Poor thing.

Everything happens for a reason. Who knows what butterfly wing's flutter begins one place and ends in another. I liked your story very much.

Point being it was OP's money and its no ones business what he does with it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30782758


Wait... I thought the point was that OP is an attention whore?
 Quoting: Gigolo Jesus


such accolade and attention for 8 quarters! I bet you would rather step over someone in the street than part with your precious 8 quarters. Because it's yours and no one is going to take any of it from you" right?

Ever give money or time or things to people less fortunate than you or are they ALL lying and scammers?

She could have folded your clothes for that money.
She would learn the value of a dollar, and not to depend on handouts.
It was a good jesture op, I just would have handled the situation differently.
 Quoting: TheCartel


LOL for fcking 8 quarters? This person is going to "learn" from this "lesson" huh. What a joke.

People who say money givers (to people who actually have to BEG strangers for it, think about that when's the last time any of you computer internet-warriors HAD to do that?)

are part of the problem" are actually saying "you make me look bad because it means I have to psychologically deal and justify why I don't. and why I'm a selfish azzhole and value 8 quarters so much".
