Re: Panhandler/Beggar Conspiracy ?
They wouldn't be doing it if it didn't pay. A recent encounter was in a major city... an older man wearing dark clothing, wearing "black" sunglasses, a top hap, carrying a cane in one hand and a black box in the other. This box just had a slot for people to put money into. I watched him take off his disguise and use the money to do come grocery shopping. He wasn't blind at all. I was surprised by my own reaction. I wasn't angry. He went through all the trouble to come up with a gimmick that worked. I knew it was obviously wrong but I just laughed.
