Something funny/weird happened twice last week. On two different occasions I stopped at a red light in the city. Both times there was a beggar asking for money. Both times there were a few cars ahead of me and behind me. Both times the guys asked everyone except me for money. This is the first time this has ever happened to me.
I actually didn’t want them to ask because I never carry cash and hate saying I don’t have anything. Yet at the same time I didn’t like that they didn’t ask. It made me wonder why? Does my face look like one who lacks generosity? Do I look like I don’t have money? Do I look like someone who always charges things to cards? I know it is so lame and sensitive to wonder but I can’t help it.
Maybe the beggars have been doing this so long they can actually profile people to a certain extent. Body language. Eye contact (or lack of).
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
