people see things differently. what i see may not be what you see. how i would describe something may not be how you describe it. how it really is may be totally different. in any case, if you ask someone to describe a homeless person you might get various answers. so i'm going to use a collective answer here because i'm just not going to take a homeless survey. first of all, people would think i'm odd. second of all..the mayor might misconstrue it for panhandling and i don't have the time or the propensity to sit in police headquarters for a couple of hours this morning. the third reason is i'd feel alittle self aware because i'd be paranoid that they're describing me. i'm not sure i could handle that this morning.
so..how would you describe a homeless person if you had to think about if for a minute?
dirty needs a shave clothes don't quite match scarey
nuisance economic menace alcoholic/drunk crack head
panhandler welfare bum lazy won't work
beggar mooch obama bum stinky
there's more. but it bothers me to list them.
you may be right in all of the above.
