This is Scott, he asked me for 50 cents just as I was leaving the 99 cents store. So instead of giving him 50 cents I took him back inside the store with me and purchased milk, granola bars and chips and lots of water bottles for him. As I purchased these items with him walking along side of me picking out things the manager asked me if he was bothering me and then proceeded to ask him to leave. I interrupted him and told him that the only person that was a bother to me was him and asked him to leave Scott and I alone as we continued our shopping. He did however dozens of people stared at Scott and I as we walked around together talking and picking things out for him. People were whispering and giving us dirty looks. After we went to the register together and paid for his items I got dirty looks and rude comments. Scott and I walked out of the store and he couldn’t thank me enough, he was just a man who lost his job and went through a tough time in his life causing him to become homeless. He may have just asked for 50 cents but what he got was a new friend and food from the store as well as food that I went back home and brought to him. Not all homeless people are losers as he said himself, they’re just people who never made it back on their feet. 💛 I don’t care if I get a ton of hateful comments or dirty looks for helping someone in need. That’s just the type of person I am, I believe in being someone that’s there for EVERYONE. He was not a bother to me and he never would have been, however the disgusting people that were so heartless and rude to us were.
