Isn't the UN in session next week? This situation might really ramp up the security next week.

Yes, it's next week. Midtown east will be very bad.

Predicament to run by you all:

A few weeks ago this guy I see riding his bike a lot in my neighborhood pulls up to me on my block and says, "Hey man, I see you all of the time in the neighborhood. You're always dressed up, I'm so curious as to what you do for work." We had a pleasant conversation. He was a bit scraggly, but it was warm out and he's a hipster so I didn't think anything of it. Now, I see this guy begging for money at intersections and such. Naturally he sees me, knows me now, and is all, "hey man, could you spare anything for me?" I literally didn't have any cash at the time, but I felt kind of like a dickhead. The issue is, I am seeing this guy begging often now, I feel like if I give him something he's going to try and hit me up for money constantly, but not giving him anything I feel bad given our short conversation. I feel hostage on my own block.

Do I never give him anything?
Do I give him something every time I see him?
Do I stagger when I "have cash vs. not have cash?

One cigarette per encounter. I am on these terms with a baglady in my zone of work.

I don't commonly have cigarettes to hand out. Is this code for something else?
post #11413 of 11480
Nope. Get a pack then for just this purpose. Prolly serve you well when trinkin too.

pBOOTH, do what you'd do if you hadn't made conversation with him. Look at it this way: If a newsstand vendor had asked you the same thing, you wouldn't feel compelled to buy a paper every time you saw him, would you?

Tell him you're voting for Trump. He'll never bother you again.
