Help a Punk Get Drunk by zosogis Help a Punk Get Drunk by zosogis
On Granville Street, Vancouver Canada

There seems to be quite an ongoing problem there, atleast from my point of view coming from Australia..
I came across so many wanting money you begin to get picky about who you give your money to..
In Seattle the week before I came across a man in the middle of the road asking for a place to stay or whatever anyone could offer for himself and his stranded wife all I had was a couple of spare coins and my leftover lunch which I gave him and he accepted graciously..
In my hometown, of Perth, Australia a bum or a beggar is an extremely rare occurance - I guess with our welfare system there shouldn't be any...

It was a shock to me in any case, and this is just one of the few cases and as you can tell these two aren't the hardest done by of all.. Oh well I contributed to their liquor fund in exchange for taking the photo

At least the're honest. I'd rather give them a beer instead of spending money to people who say they're poor but spend it themself on alcohol or stuff. ;D

A lot of that goes on where I live, and it's getting more common due to the growing rift between the upper and lower class. The middle class is disappearing completely- indeed, my city has the second most overpriced real estate in the United States (at least it did last I checked). So even if you have a job, minimum wage isn't nearly enough to afford the cost of living here.

Just because thay make sings like these doesn't mean they don't have it tough. They just can't use the pity card most of the time because of how they look so they try to make people laugh.
