It's a good idea, but unless they were terrible panhandlers, its a pretty big pay cut.

I always give money to panhandlers.

Not because I'm particularly generous or give a shit, but just because it might piss off the people in the car behind me.

Well, next time he'll stop, in traffic, get out of the car, and light up a doobie with the fellow.

He doesn't care, because after a couple of tokes off one of those big fatties, he has no idea where he is.

BTW

I have no animosity to

I have no animosity to panhandlers if they are just standing there with a sign and often roll down the window and give them a buck or two. Will even talk to them while the light decides to turn green.

Panhandling may be another one of those oldest professions, like whores, politicians and lawyers.

Ever wonder why whores politicians and lawyers have animosity towards panhandlers, it's because they are cutting into their take.
