Are The Homeless Even People?

“I was walking in Downtown Toronto a few months ago with a friend of mine when this ‘homeless’ guy howled, “God Bless You!” to us. I went, “thanks man, you too!” When I looked over, I noticed she (my friend) had zoned out, avoiding the entire interaction. Then we passed another “homeless” person and then a third, and each time she either looked away or turned to her phone.

So I finally stopped and confronted her about her awkwardness and she said, “the thing is, I don’t know why, but I feel so guilty for everything I have when I see a ‘homeless’ person”. Now, to say I had a lot to say about her remark would be a complete understatement, but I definitely wasn’t trying to ruin my chances at a second date. So, like any other smart guy, I obviously dropped the subject and we enjoyed the rest of our evening.

Long after the date, another homeless man stopped me and asked if I could spare a few dollars. I took him to Tim’s instead and got him a medium triple triple and a Boston cream doughnut, his favourite, and he asked me how my week went. So I asked him about his and we took a picture together, which I posted on my facebook page, and we went on about our day.”   Read more and watch the video…
