Homeless hangout...

Question Posted Sunday December 28 2008, 1:27 am

Hey all...Being a member here for awhile and offering advice myself. I now need advice. I'll keep it short and to the point. I shall utter those famous words...It's long!

Anyway, I work the weekends at my job. I am the only one there. I get there on Saturdays around 10AM. Well, last week I pulled in the parking lot and there's a car there. A guy jumped out and said, "Hey sir, hope you don't mind me staying here..." I told him I didn't have a problem with it. He said he was just going to take a nap then leave. I had walked in the door with my lunch and got to thinking, "Darn, I know what that's like..." So I go outside and offer him my food but he turned it down. Anyway, this Saturday he's there again. I had no choice but to call my boss and tell him. He told me to either call the police or ask him to leave. I told him to leave. Actually I told him to go away and to comeback tomorrow because no one would be there but come Monday he would have to leave or the owners would call the cops.
Here's my dilemma. I know what it's like to living on the streets. I talked to the man, he lost his job and has been out of work for 5 months. Everywhere he goes he gets harassed by the cops or told to leave. He's been trying at the unemployment office and at Day Hire but no luck. I am torn between disobeying my boss's rules and helping this person out. Any ideas? I just don't think that's right to be an American and have to live on the streets. No one should have to suffer here. We have it good. We are blessed.

Okay so you are referring to this guy that died? How sad! Maybe this answer will help others though. Instead of getting your self in hotwater and allowing a potential con in your life, refer them to agencies that can help, such as the salvation army a mission, even a church or social services. I am a perfect example of getting taken advantage of by a so called friend...someone I tried to help. It's practically ruined my life and she does not appreciate it.

i think helping someone in need is a better deed u will get another job but just think of him he probably wont be able to for some time it does suck that they found him dead but atleast you thought of helping him and next just make a decision faster and think of how you would have felt if someone helped you out when you needed it
