I was walking down "the Ave" in the University district yesterday and I came upon this 20 something man who was sitting on a bench reading a book, as passer-bys, well, passed by, he would give the trademark "Spare some change?" All while barely looking up from his book. While I suppose it is a good thing he is trying to further his education from reading, I found myself thinking, why should I give money to someone, who won't even bother to give me the full focus of his panhandling efforts? Where is his work ethic?
