Just when you thought the sorry sacks of crap within our society who feel they are too good to work for a living cannot stoop any lower, this guy proves that they can.
Abe Hagenston, above, is a Detroit man who says he’s homeless, and he resorts to begging on the street corners as a lively hood. Wanting to make it easier for EVERYONE to give him money, he figured out a way to start accepting donations via credit cards!
So, let’s get this straight. This guy is smart enough to figure out how to get people to give him money, via technology, but he’s not smart enough to figure out how to earn a living through using that same technology?
“People don’t realize how tough it is to come from nothing when you don’t have any family or any friends,” he recently told a media outlet when asked that same question.
It could be that he’s smarter than we’re giving him credit for. I mean, who wouldn’t be somewhat amazed that a beggar accepts credit cards and allow him to swipe $5 or so off their card just to see if it really works? In a way, he may be more of a street performer than an actual beggar.
