Strange things have been happening the last couple of weeks. By this I mean I’ve found unopened food just laying on the sidewalk.
Last week I found an unopened Snickers bar just sitting there on the sidewalk. I picked it up, and decided to give it to the first homeless person I came across. Surely enough, being on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, it took me about 10 steps to come across such a person. He gladly accepted my found gift.
Just a couple of days ago, I was once again walking on Sunset in Hollywood. This time I found an unopened 3-pack of 7-11 Macadamia nut cookies. I picked up the cookies, and went on my hunt for a homeless person. I found what was clearly one across the street. I went over to him, offered him the cookies.
Would you believe it that he refused the cookies? He just kept waving “no” to me. WTF. Even if you don’t like cookies, it’s food. Eat them. Maybe trade them at least. I mean, can’t he trade the cookies for cigarettes? How does this work with the homeless people. I’m sure they have a system, some kinda currency system.
Or is that prison? Idk.
Eventually I just placed the cookies next to another homeless man who was sleeping next to a carton of juice. Juice and cookies for him when he wakes up!
