    Say "Hello its nice to meet you Bob, I did not know that the pension was that small". Then give him everything you have, money I mean. Or whatever.

    I actually bought a beggar beer, and wine on friday, every morning when i

    owned a college-restaurant 10 years ago.

    In most cases accompanied by a firm bratwurst or some hot soup.

    A small effort: i made good money those days.

    It took about 3 months before he first said thanks.

    First time i saw him smile.

    Beautiful eyes.....

    First full sentence was "happy holidays, have one on me......."

    He gave me a bottle of wine he must have begged for quite some time.

    I later learned it was a christmas-gift from his regular liquorstore.

    I don't tell this to show how good i am; my guess is i received more than

    i gave.

    Like the moments he wasn't there on his regular spot, but left a note

    appologising he couldn't receive my daily treat.

    Etc, etc....

    Give a coin now that I'm in SC, but I'd ignore if I were still in NJ cause most 'beggers' were professional hustlers....it was a job to them


    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
