“I don’t know why homeless people think they have it so hard. When I went abroad and begged I got by fine. They just have to do it better.”
And you know I bet they have money but want the “experience” of being poor and trying to make it so they can blog about it later.
This is a thing. Every Summer in Ann Arbor swarms of white hippie kids with dreads flock in to panhandle on the streets while they do their travelling “free spirit” (lbr they probably use the g-word) schtick as a faux-boho lifestyle choice. And they sometimes displace the panhandling regulars who usually PoC and are out most of the year. It’s fucking obnoxious.
Hipsters are literally trying to gentrify begging now
Omg I FUCKING HATE THOSE kids in AA. Esp the ones who try to say they’re “traveling monks” No Jimmy you wouldn’t take summer classes this year so your mom kicked you out of her Bloomfield Hills home for a week. Stop trying to sell me badly written books, dollar store jewelry
Every one of these people is going to incur the wrath of at least two gods.
*head in hands*
I wonder if we can move into their neighborhoods and ruin them while they’re out begging in ours? I could righteously demolish an organic grocer with an entire aisle of tofu and put in a rib house. Someone take over that overpriced faux Tibetan clothing store that sells beaded grocery bags and turn it into a shoe store that sells work boots.
