People asking if you "have any spare change".
They have been around since the beginning of time. A begger is even mentioned in the Bible (he gets healed by Jesus, but that's another topic for another time). Now I have no problem with individuals asking for spare change (most times I don't have any because I try not to carry cash), but what I do have a problem with is individuals on the street begging with their children. Some people say it's a sympathy tactic; I say it's sending the wrong message to the kids. Now I am not speaking of those individuals that are in shelters with their kids; that's one thing.
