    I was walking down the street and the usual legions of beggers were littering the thoroughfare.

    I usually walk towards the edge of the pavement to avoid them but it seems this is what I get for not adhering to my usual coarse.

    One ten metres away had just asked me for '10p' then the next one sitting down asks me and when I said no he says 'f*cking Pr*&k'. I certainly didn't hide my distain at him asking which was probably why he was so annoyed. They ask all the time every day it is so tedious and they only ever spend it on drugs.

    So I turn back and walk back up say 'you want to have a go do you?'

    He says 'you don't like helping ppl do you' I looked at his eyes and his pupils were pinpoint so clearly high.

    I said 'yes I have loads of money in my pockets to give away' or something. I feel I should not have tried to justify my actions in hindsight.

    Then he says 'f*ck you'. and there were children and families passing I felt like I lowered myself when as they passed I also found myself responding in kind.

    He then said 'I'll have you' I say 'you'll have me will you'?

    he said 'yeah round the corner'

    His mate was telling him to be quiet and said I should just walk away.

    I just walked off then. I felt I had not totally lost face as at least I went back up and had a little go back but it felt like a no win situation really.

    But I thought I could take him up on his offer or leave and so decided to leave. Am I a wimp for not fighting him?

    lol. I wouldn't let it get to you man :) Remember these are really deeply troubled people, quite often with mental health issues.

    I would never fight a homeless person even I thought I could win. I would not want to grapple with someone that hasn't showered in days. I also wouldn't want to risk any blood being involved and potentially exposing myself to disease. Not trying to say all homeless people are dirty and diseased, even people with homes can have those traits; however, it is quite prevalent in the homeless community.

    Yes and I do worry they might try and stick you with a dirty needle. Then they could be like 'now you are one of us forever' their ultimate revenge.

    I have seen this guy around before and I live in the city centre so see these guys all the time. I better keep a low profile so that he forgets about me. If I let him catch sight of me too soon it might rekindle his anger and make him want to act on it.

    Shit now I am going to be afraid to leave the house for the next few weeks.

    At the very moment you have responded to this guy you are generating energy. You know energy always follows attention.
    Meaning if you do not show any kind of attention to something it wont gets much energy. So by fact if you would have ignored
    the whole shout out from this person pretty much nothing would have happend. But as soon as you react he will react as well.

    Maybe you got my point mate. By the way I did not mean "energy" in the way like some esoterism guru would have used the word. :D

    Either help him or ignore him.
    BTW you guys are all winners! Punch? Fight? You say he's a homeless, thugs can be homeless too and can easily carry a 6.35 in the pockets.

    No matter how nasty or vicious or high on drink or drugs they may be, they are still a tier of society that deserves a bit of respect. Looking down on them or antagonizing them is detestable. he may have been rude due to his situation in life, and you engaging him just to save face and the part where you brag that you have loads of money just to piss him off says a lot about the kind of person you are. And you couldn't let it slide- you simply had to post it online just to validate your actions.

    You do sound really stuck up in all honesty, I'm surprised they didn't just all kick your head in, not like getting arrested is much of a deterrent when you live on the street.
    I normally buy them food if I have enough spare money

    It could be you on the street begging for 10p one day, just remember that.

    Not everyone is there through choice and not everyone has the ability or the knowledge to get themselves out of that position.

    Life's pretty shit when you are begging for 10p.

    The way i see the people who beg : they are as other trying to make an income, there are better ways surely but this is one of them , really sad one.

    Now, every person has the option on where and how to spend his earned money , "rich" or "poor" both will spend their money maybe in same thing.

    There is people who takes right decicions and those who take wrong ones , no matter how wealthy they are.

    To your question: if you dont want a person to take drugs i supose you want a world clean of bad decisions , so fighting is a good or bad decision? i thing you just were coherent.

    Just pray for that people to take better decisions ..

    Now the way i see IM : is like people on the road asking drivers to buy what they have to offer. ( you go were people usually spent time, road way, instagram, internet, churches etc.. ) Your EPC compared to a beggers EPC would be similar sometimes cents others big bucks. Only that beggers EPC = earning per person EPP.

    Maybe i am wrong, just one more opinion.

    There's only one way to beat crazy, and that's to avoid engagement. Whether or not that guy was legitimately crazy or not is immaterial. You're on unequal footing, him with less to lose than you. Same rule applies, you win by not engaging.

    The one and only time I visited New York, I was walking around downtown and a man across the street pointed at me and started yelling something about ....well I don't remember exactly, but it was something vivid and extreme, I think about wanting to hit me in the head with a hammer. I remember that he was looking right at me, but yet, he wasn't. Whatever was behind those eyes was somewhere else.

    I won that fight using the method outlined above.
    I got tf out of there and forgot all about that moment until right now.
