Homeless Signs: My Tips When To Give and To Ignore

Coming back from Chicago, Deb {Just Short of Crazy} and I needed to take a detour {on a Sunday, how nice eh?} so we ended up in Grand Rapids, MI.  On the corner of the freeway, just off the exit, we saw a very young man holding a sign.  We laughed and laughed and laughed at the sign.  This kid was clearly a genius.  Deb rolled down her window and waved the kid on over.  He ran like a gazelle across those 4 lanes of traffic!

We told him we would give him some money because we liked his sign and appreciated his honesty but we needed to take a picture first.  He was so excited that we were going to give him some cash that he was grinning from ear to ear.  We think he liked our sense of humor.

Without further adieu....

lol.

On a more serious note, our GPS directed us off the freeway in Chicago yesterday and it was a bad part of town ... lots of people with actual signs (need $, homeless, etc) there.
