I live in an urban area with a lot of homeless people. For the most part I try and be compassionate. But look, you keep appearing and peeing in stairways or sleeping on the front step when I need to get to work. I'm tired of finding your beer cans all over the place. And to the guy who likes to cat call women as they walk by, I will never give you anything you fucking asshole. To the other guy who won't take no for an answer, I will call the cops on you. And to the other guy with the boombox, get the fuck out. I'm tired of your shit at midnight.
JFC try and be a decent goddamned human being, regardless of your living situation.
