What's wrong with this picture?

Don't say "What picture?" -- it's a metaphor for "situation".

Picture this: I go out to get supper last night, and right in front of the building in which I work, a homeless panhandler wishes me happy new year. But to do it, he has to interrupt his cell phone conversation!!! WTF, people!

no kidding! he must be a 'fake'!

Maria said...

are you freakin' kidding me? So did you slip him a twenty?

Newsguy Bob said...

Yeah, right, Maria, I slipped him TWO twenties. After all, he's got to pay for cellphone usage.

It reminds me of that woman who got caught in Toronto a few years back, living in Forest Hills, parking her Mercedes a few blocks from where she panhandled every day.

how generous of you... heh

Guess the new job to have for 2008 is panhandling... who woudda thunk!
