Circle of life

“I heard that there’s an experiment to help homeless people by the government actually giving them money, you know, cash.”

TONY
“Well that won’t work. You’ve got too many of us who will just go off to find something like alcohol or whatever they want. But you can bet your socks that I’d take their money if they want to give it to me.”

PHILIP
“So what’s the best approach then?”

TONY
“When you’re homeless, it means you need a place to live. So if they can help homeless people get somewhere to live, then that could work.”

Poor guy

August 15, 2008

TONY
“You won’t believe what happened to me, I think it was yesterday. Anyway, I was riding my bike on a back street near Dundas and I get flagged down by this guy. Well he looks more pale than a sheet just washed in javex. He asks me if I was around there 2 hours before, which I definitely wasn’t. I never take that route when I’m going the other way, and besides I wasn’t on my bike when he was concerned about.  So he tells me that he’s lost $3,800 in cash money. In cash money. Can you imagine that?”

PHILIP
“What exactly was he doing with $3,800 bucks in cash?”

TONY
“The poor guy just had cashed his paycheck and then he lost his envelope is what he tells me, believe it or not. You gotta feel for the guy even though, you know, I could really use the $3,800.”
