Man Begging For Money Offered Job At Dealership. When He Says No, They Put Up Their Own Sign



For many, it’s difficult to choose the right path and taking the easy way out is all too common for some. This story takes place in Michigan, where a man was panhandling for money outside of a local car dealership that provides employment to numerous area residents.

While the dealership’s employees were not about to give the man a mere handout, they came up with an idea that was even better: they offered him a job! The man could have accepted employment making $10 per hour and put himself on the pathway to never having to beg again in his life.

You would have thought that the man would be overjoyed by the offer and thank the heavens for his good luck. Not only did he turn down the job, but he also boasted about the fact that he makes more being a bum than most of the dealership’s employees get paid.

The dealership did not take kindly to his remarks and they fashioned a sign that warned people away from donating to the panhandler. Once the sign was put up, the police were contacted to check in on him and they found probable cause to arrest the cocky bum for his drunk and disorderly behavior.

It really makes you stop to wonder what happens to all of the money that you give to people who are supposedly in need, doesn’t it? This story is a reminder of the importance of teaching a man to fish, so that he will always have the ability to feed himself, as opposed to merely giving him a fish, so that he can eat for one day.
