Ha ha ha, funny you mentioned that. Yesterday I stopped at the bank to deposit a check and get some more pocket cash and they had fresh crisp brand
new $20 bills, so I got an extra $600 which I am going to put $100 each into envelopes and keep them with me and simply hand one to any (pleasant)
little old lady I bump into that appears to need some help. I've done similar before, around Christmas (heck, a couple years ago I paid an elderly
strangers $1500 doctor bill, money I needed to make a house payment or pay my own medical bill with instead). It's amazing how such a small gesture
and amount of help can help someone like that out. I consider it payback for the times when I was younger raising a family and good luck came my way
just when I needed it most.
It really is sad to see the elderly, who are really too old to keep working, have to worry about things they can't possibly do anything about. This
is in contrast to the anger and rage I experience when I see young healthy adults waiting in the welfare line wait for some of my tax jacked money
that they feel they are entitled to. ARGH! Those working age welfare mongers can should starve and rot for all I care, I have NO sympathy or
compassion for their asses. But the hard off elderly and disabled break my heart, they should not starve or freeze in the winter because they are
unable to work and food and fuel prices have sky rocketed while their nest egg has evaporated.
