Do you talk to them? Give them money/supplies? I'm a bit to shy to approach/talk people so rarely give them stuff however I will drop lose change into they're pots. With the amount of time I spend at the hospital I end up talking to the local homeless people, mental health patients seem to have to wait that little bit longer so we have some nice random chats and a few giggles to pass the time. I met a certain guy called Dave, we spoke about his past and how he ended up in the pickle he is in, we also have a bit of a joke about, the first time I met him we were sat talking about how he used to be an alcoholic and how he was now sober, he was proud to tell me how he always dresses smart and his clever 'street tricks' of hiding his clothes and such. Sadly the next time I saw him he was drunk and had slipped back again but we still had a chat and a joke, he always seems to recognize me even if he couldn't remember my name. The one thing that sticks out is he has never asked me for a single thing, not a penny. I very rarely go into town but when I do I always keep a look out for him to say hello but I never seem to see him, today I dragged myself into town after a particularly bad patch and over the other side of the pedestrianized area saw him, he was with a few other homeless people but I was brave and went over and said hey, he looked well pleased bless him, we stood and had a chat, he had a cast on his hand, I asked him what he had done, I then corrected myself and said 'actually I don't think I want to know!' he laughed and replied 'yeah you dont!' then also pointed out his broken foot He introduced me to his 'mates' and kept shaking my hand and saying thanks for me talking to him, his mate then butted in and went on about how he is a busker but his voice had gone coz he was ill.. And started singing a song to show me he can still sing a bit, next thing I know both of them are full blown singing to me in the middle of town centre, everyone is stopping to look at me I went super embarrassed but it was sweet bless them. Now I just have semisonic - secret smile in my head :mad2: I didn't want to just hand over some money to him incase he took it the wrong way and felt bad because of it, if I was near a shop I would have offered to get him some baci as I know he smokes and is forever picking up butts off the floor! :frown2: I said goodbye he gave me a hug and told me if I ever have any trouble to go find him and he'll sort it Lets hope I don't see him in A+E again with something else broken! Bit of a random thread but it brightened up my day bless him!
