I guess beggars can be choosers

On my commute home I often drive by individuals holding cardboard signs declaring their homeless and hungry status. When I have food in my car, I typically share it with them.

Today, I drove by one such individual. I rolled down my window and offered the only edible item I had with me: a baggie of baby cut carrots.

The man eyed me suspiciously, grabbed the baggie from my hand, and began to walk away. I began to roll up my window when the man turned around. When I rolled my window back down, he thrust the carrots back into my car and declared: "I don't eat carrots," followed by an attitude laden: "Psssh!"

Guess I can't blame him. I don't eat carrots either.
