In my opinion if you think enabling these people is helping them you are part of the problem.

Do these exist? I searched for "Jesus money" and came up empty.

I need some of these...



I dunno what they are called, but it looks like an actual dollar, with the word of God or scripture on the back. Some guy gave me this a while back when I was walking in downtown a few years ago in Hawaii and I was happy because I thought somebody was being nice, but turns out it was a Christ dollar which pissed me off.

+1 I agree with you 100%. These bums are not going to get the message if you keep feeding them.

Just got asked at Tropicana 2 days ago for a ride, then some change.

Yesterday just got asked for change when I was getting a haircut.

Luckily I haven't been asked today, but I haven't gone anywhere that's close to a casino.

Here in SK foreigners-only casinos, I've asked some of these moochers/beggars why they come to the casino everyday if they have no money. Usual reply is that they are unemployed; have nothing else to do while spouse is working; or they go for the free food and drinks, but mainly the reason is to have a chance to get free chips from the generous.

I do have a happy ending story for one of these beggars (I think its legal, :) ) as some have taken on the entrepreneurship of buying the 50,000 Korean won (~$46US) gift cards that the casino gives out for players card mileage points, for 40,000won(~$37US), asking every casino patron as they leave the players points cashier window if they wish to sell their gift card(s). (Gift cards are legally bought/sold at gift card/money exchange shops outside the casino) One former beggar told me he now makes over $200 a day doing this, except now he doesn't have to ask people if they want to sell their cards, the repeat customers just come looking for him. I don't think the casino minds this either, since the players selling their cards usually take the money straight back to the tables.

I'd only give someone a manwon (~$9) if they needed it for transportation, never for gambling, as I'd rather give my money away to the old homeless people living in the Seoul Station subway.

My mentally slow brother uses this line for everything asked of him: "I don't really want to do that." It's a very direct and effective line. Usually that's enough of an explanation when I use that line.

About the cockiest I'll get is if I'm gambling and get asked for a cig I'll point in any direction and say 'No but I think there's a smoke shop down there."

Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggert, a street panhandler. What's the difference? Maybe the clothes they wear.
