Some Young 'Philanthropists' Ask Strangers For Their Food, Then Help A Homeless Guy And It Makes Zero Sense Whatsoever
Most of these videos have some distinguishable point to them. Throw in some depressing music and you are sure to evoke some emotional reaction out of me. I am the sucker that 'lends' the dollar that eventually goes to beer and cigarettes. However, I can't even understand what this video is trying to prove. On the surface, I see no discernible life lesson I can take from this. If you are going to pull at my heart strings at least do it in a reasonable manner.
Am I supposed to be surprised when strangers, who are eating, say no when asked for their food by young punks clad in their own companies' apparel? 100% of people would say no in that situation. Quite honestly, I would think he was fucking with me. Nice table manners dick. If someone is eating you leave them alone.
Then the video takes a turn. They basically buy a homeless guy, what looks like, an entire pizza. He's happy as a pig in shit and starts going to town. Then they send the other kid up to ask for a slice. Maybe this homeless guy is a giver, MAYBE. He offers the kid a slice. Did you ever think that maybe the homeless dude knew it was a scam as soon as you walked with the exact same logo on your hoodie? He's homeless, not blind. I am sure he would recognize that emblem, seeing as he has probably never seen it before. So the point is that people that pay for their food won't give it away, and people who are given a ton of free food will? Seems pretty obvious.
When this kid says 'I know how you feel' I want to jump through the computer and curb stomp his blowout. Dude, he's got no shoes on and you have a fresh cut and tricolored Nikes. You have no idea how he feels you disingenuous fuck.
Why do people think they are helping when they choose what to give homeless people? Give them some money and let them choose. I don't care if they use it to buy booze. Sometimes when I get home from work I need a beer. I can only imagine how inflated that feeling is when you have no home. Either be selfish or selfless, not somewhere in between.
