You can tell when someone is going to hit you up for money. I like to preemptively strike by asking them for a dollar before they can ask me. The confused look on their face is priceless.
now this one I like,I'm definitely gonna use this one next time I'm at Penn Station in NYC.seems that they like to get you a block or so from the door these days.I'll only give if it looks like the person really hasn't eaten. what they do with it is on them,crack or cake,dope or donuts it's their choice,the dollar or two taint gonna make or break me at this point in my sad wretched life lol.
