I can’t vouch for the average earnings of the panhandlers in Portland, but they’re some of the most well nourished beggars I’ve seen

With Starbuc's tip cup! Gotta love it

With a Starbuck’s tip cup, no less. Gotta love it

NY bums claim they take in $200 per hour.

Neither money nor food from me I give. If stand upright on street corner you can, get a fucking job.

    Oh, come on, it was probably only a C class:

  3. 40 yrs ago I ended up in Seattle, broke. At the airport I was able to panhandle enough for a plane ticket in about 2 hrs. Only time I did it (was 15 and didn’t look homeless, probably helped).

    Greenwich Avenue needs more panhandlers.
    Next time I give a dollar in Manhattan, I’ll suggest to them to take the train up here for a day or two. They can also offer to mind your car for a fee, after they see you getting out of it.
    There is some ripe pickings here!
