I am not being funny but are you not being disrespectful towards the homeless people yourself by referring to them using the unplesant term "tramp"

But this is society today, We condemn before we have facts. I was hoping to catch him the other day, You can have a good chat with him. But I wanted to invite him over for a couple of days over x-mas. Hope I see him but if not hope someone will tell im to give Tony a ring. He will know. Let us think for a while that we may soon hit hard times. Maybe we may hit the alcohol to drown our problems. Many people out there do not have the strength or support that many of us have. Many do not have a family to help. Many are from abused families. I hate scum bag druggies and shop lifters, Even those that beg and make people feel uneasy ( In town ). But again I think that many of us are intelligent enough to be able to tell the difference between the scum and the genuine down and outs.
Good on ya mate it a pity theres not more people like you

Haven't seen him for ages....the fb pics seem like he's aged a lot more than the time since I last bumped into him

He used to come and visit regularly in the shop I worked in, get some coffee from the vending machine (it was vile but he loved it) then go and have a dance on the pavement outside.

He's OK. Can have his off-days but in general he's just living his life the best he can

I don't think there was a "choice" in the way it seems, about his lifestyle, as suggested earlier.

Where do you get that from?
I was merely stating you were being disrespectful by calling homeless people tramps

But each to their own, if you cannot see the irony in your posts then its a losing game before it starts!
