I saw a homeless guy with a sign the other day. It had the usual "I'm a Vietnam vet, give me money, blah blah blah" stuff going on, but then at the end, it said, "or at least eye contact and a smile."
I do that anyway! 'Cause I'm a nice person. But when you go and make a sign like that, now I feel like you think I'm only doing it because you told me to and that's annoying.
I guess I've just always hated being told what I'm supposed to do. It's like, no, I knew that already and would've done that on my own. I want to be appreciated for not having to be told what logic and common sense and basic humanity already dictate. How else are we supposed to distinguish between the assholes and the good ones?!
