Creative Panhandling

Overheard on the subway tonight:

Homeless man: "I bet you don't want to give me any money because you think I spent all my money on drugs and alcohol."

Subway Rider: "Something like that."

Homeless man: "Well, you're right. I did spend all of my money on drugs and alcohol. But I want you to know that I've learned my lesson and I'm not gonna do that any more. Now I'm asking for a chance to spend your money on drugs and alcohol."
