Working Watt I-80
Today I panhandled at Watt and Interstate 80. No costume or clever signs. Just an army jacket and a sign reading "Please Help God Bless". Later I addes "H.S. Dropout." This was cool as several folks excitedly told me that they were dropouts too. One woman pointed this out to her daughter, lest her daughter think of dropping out.
In one hour I made $8.50, two bus passes and a chocolate covered granola bar, melted. I didn't have the heart to tell the lady that I couldn't eat it as I am a vegan.
Three people told me to get a job, one of whom was very passionate about it and suggested I put down my sign and go to the Wendy's I was next to and get a job.
Eightfifty's more than minimum wage, but not by much. Can you help with a little donation? I need some chamomile tea to help me sleep. C'mon, what's a buck? God Bless.
