It’s time to shave my head again.
I must have a look that screams “HARMLESS FRIENDLY FAT GUY” because I’ve been hit up no less than six times in the past month by people wanting money, donations, a ride, “gas money”, etc. This happens at Walgreens, CVS, the Chevron gas station on the corner, and even WHILE I’M WAITING IN THE DRIVE-THRU AT MCDONALDS.
Unfortunately, I was raised to be polite and just don’t have it in me to say “NO, GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM MY VEHICLE”, instead it’s “I’m sorry, I don’t have any money” or “I’m sorry, I don’t carry cash”.
I never got hit up by a pandhandler or bum when I had my head shaved.
