usualy the ones asking for smokes are just normal people
homeless people are always very kind when they ask and they say thank you at the end
give them a smoke but not to the random normal dudes
that probably are to cheap to take their own smoke out of their pocket

This guy is definitely homeless. He lives under the bridge by the river. He has been living on the streets for the 2 years I have worked there. A lot
of homeless come to the park and ask us for cigarettes. They go through the butt cans and pick out the cigarettes with tobacco left in them and smoke
them. I saw a guy light a "used" cigarette up once and that is when I started giving them new ones from my pack. That is just wrong and disgusting.
You could catch ANYTHING from a used cigarette...and it skeeves me out.
THe ones I do not give cigarettes to are the ones that are really young and look like they are strung out on drugs. When I see them coming I beat feet
and get away from the area.
I used to have to walk 4 blocks to where my car was parked, sometimes late at night and alone. I was never afraid. They never bother me. I do worry
now that I am in the parking garage. It is just plain creepy when yours is the only car in there and it is dark and quiet. If I am going to get
mugged, it will happen in the parking garage.
I have mace on my keychain, but whether I have the cajones to ever use it, I guess time will tell. I always tell my friends at work if I get mugged I
will throw my purse and keys at them and tell them they can have it. I am that big of a wimp. I have nothing in there that cannot be replaced or that
is worth dying for.
