Stop looking at me like that, so are you! If you walked into a shop and you came across a sign that gave you the option to get stuff for free or to buy them, you'd 150% go for the free option. We always look at the hobos in a funny way (not funny ha-ha) when they hold their little signs to us or wave their tip cups towards us, but what we don't know is that they are way better than us.
They have the courage to show the world that they are not willing to work for a thing and still want to live in the same world as you. They can get up each morning , go to the same spot everyday and shove their cups in your face, whether you insulted, ignored or sneered at them yesterday and the days before that. Now that is what I call courage. It's what I call knowing what you want and going for it. Looking the world in the eye, telling it to go Fornicate Under the Consent of the King with itself. I do not condone laziness, but the mere fact that they make the effort to stand on that corner, day in day out, and talk you into giving them money, or the fact that they actually got that little sign drawn means that they are creative. Seriously, even if you were hit with all the ingeniousness of the world, poured into you in buckets, i bet you would not think of this!
I'm talking about award winning signs!
You gotta give it to these guys! Creative Directors at Ad Agencies should be going to them for ideas, would save us the audience those horrible TV commercial we have to endure. Something i noticed while researching on hobos... they effing have a website! Now, how on earth do they access the internet? Forgive my ignorance... actually, don't... This website has all their signs, art, meetings dates and even a grapevine! I don't even want to think about what the grapevine contains. That is waste of perfectly recyclable thoughts.
So me cheap woman, came across a website that was giving stuff away for free. They were - ok, still are - giving away an Ipod Nano. I have an Ipod Classic (but do i say?) but a couple of my friends do not. I do not want to get this Ipod Nano for them becasue i love them. uh-uh. It's because i love my ipod so much and getting such texts on my phone is beginning to really annoy me!
