"Look out for jerks like these!" People to Avoid Tip by malkey

People to Avoid, San Francisco: 71 reviews and 28 photos

Lots of street people (homeless). It's time we start refering to them as what they really are-drunks, addicts, street-smart con artists, mentally unstable. For many, not all, begging is a chosen lifestyle. If they truly ARE homeless, there are so many goods and services available for those who are sincere about finding help. Beggars...Avoid them. If they ask for change, ignore them, or pretend like you're a deaf/mute. Do your best to avoid engaging them in any conversations. Avoid eye contact. They're street-smart and know all the tricks to distract you. Look straight ahead and keep walking steadily away from them.
