I stopped at the Dollar Tree on ponce de leon(a “colorful stretch of road thru atlanta.) With a plethora or comical mix of hipsters, senior citizens, and others in needy dire straights and strangely enough Zaxbys choice for its first restaurant ITP.
I park, get out and I’m immediately questioned “Sir, can you help me? I’m struggling, no place to live and been abused. I just needs some money for food.”
I’m not familiar with this one. But she certainly had a more needy tone about her begging. But my “out in public” inner cynic took control and I told her that “I’m just taking care of myself today.” In which she replied “that’s not very Christian like'”
When I left she was gone. I went to Zaxbys and sitting in the DT there she was at Krispy Creme across the way with a bag of donuts talking to 2 ladies and another man having a good ole time. Not so alone and feeling abused after all. Thinking about her comment I smiled and paid for the lady’s lunch in the car behind me!
