Rant: Not homeless; off the grid~ Granted, there are folks who truly need help. However there are a lot of folks who just want to be a drain on society.
The other day, we were stopped in traffic at the corner of Old Seward Hwy & Diamond Blvd. We had the windows down in Paul’s truck and this clown sitting on the sidewalk asks me if I have a dollar. I said no. Paul then said no. The clown then starts in that he wasn’t talking to Paul, he was talking to me. Paul suggested he get a j-o-b, the guy kept on with I was talking to the lady…fortunately traffic started moving. Paul said the clown figured women for a softer touch.
