There are some people it just doesnt pay to help. Ive got this thing that if the persn is dressed better than me (i.e. suit or tie or just better threads) I wont give them a dime. If theyre dressed that nice they probly have a debit card or credit card. I really dont give out anything more than a few coins, and thats when Im feeling really generous.

There are people out there that are professional pan handlers. Youll see them in the same location for a few days or every few days and they jump around locations. Always there during the busy times for that area.

Like down by the dd theres nobody around when I go to work but when the bars are closing theres a ton of people asking for some change for the bus or the train or their baby needs formula or anything. At times I just get sick of it and Ill ask them 20 questions until they get sick of it and leave.

Professional panhandlers

There is a gal who sits on State Street with a sign that says, "Student travelling across the country, lost wallet, please help." She & her boyfriend live out in the suburbs - apparently one of my friends knows her. Nice little scam.

Re: Professional panhandlers

There was a couple doing that right outside of the double door about a month ago. There was one guy that sat outsdie of the Milwaukee door every night too. He'd sit there and tell all the people that they had to go around to the Damen door to get in and hed help with load out. The bands would give him a t shirt. But I highly doubt he was a bum. He always told me that he was traveling through the US and hed never ask for money. One of the sound guys even offered to get him dinner or coffee for helping with the load out and he always refused. He must have found a way out of town though cause I never see him anymore.
