Homeless Man

I gave money to a homeless guy at the bus stop tonight. He smelled like he had been drinking mouthwash. I know for a fact he did not buy a McDonald's cheeseburger with the seventy-odd cents I gave him, but I'm cool with that. I really didn't need that change. When he asked me for money, I felt acutely aware of having it in my pocket and never using it, so I gave it to him. He was a very honest homeless guy. He said to me, "I'm just having a really down time." I understand, sir. It happens to all of us.

Emily you did a good thing. regardless of his eventual use for the money, everyone does need some help every now and then
