Homeless dude asked for a pop

so I was at A&W at 2 AM today after I got the midnight craving.

I bought a combo using the Free Fries to Poutine upgrade. As I was about to leave, a homeless man comes in and asks me to buy him a coffee. He's clearly suffering from some kind of mental illness. He mutters something about natural selection and shoes.

It's 2 AM. They don't sell coffee. I tell him that.

Then he asks me just to buy him something like a burger. I tell him that I can do $2 but that's my max.

So he asks me for pop.

I bought him a small pop for $2. Now, I should feel good that I did something nice, right?

But I can't help but feel like I spent way too much money tonight D:

I mean.. it's $2. I won't even notice it if I lose a toonie from my wallet. But the combo was still $10. $12 is WAYYY out of my usual budget for a midnight snack...

sigh......

also, why is fast-food incredibly expensive now? Isn't the point of fast-food restaurant supposed to be a place for cheap and fast food? I mean, I can get a seriously nice combo meal at a chinese take-out for $5. I can get a medium pizza with three toppings for $10. It's not like burgers and fries are incredibly tasty either. I only buy the value deals at McD nowadays but the McD on our campus was closed tonight for its "annual cleaning"...

Well your budget for a snack was $10.00 and your budget for the year for compassion is now $2.00. Every year, spend $2.00 on someone in need and maybe you'll feel better about your profound charity.

i got a hot drink after work and gave it to a homeless woman at the train station on a cloudy day. she seemed to have been irritated over the fact that it wasn't cash but she took it anyway and didn't thank me. since the drink had soy milk in it, i didn't know if she was allergic to it so i spent the rest of my day wondering if i'd just accidentally killed someone but what are the odds

@nolen: Your dad needs to do some research before he teaches his children such nonsense. While there are people who do abuse homelessness, there are countless more who are children and people with mental disabilities. Others are veterans who have served their countries and gave up their peaceful mental state, so that your father could have freedom of speech. Do not be so quick to judge others, you do not know what they have been through in life.
