One time in my 20s or early 30s I saw the grocery store manager hassling a beggar outside the store, telling him to get lost, he wasn't wanted. I told the manager I'd never shop there again. There was another store one block farther. I went there. I had no car yet and carried my groceries by hand. But one time I did go back to the closer store, not sure why. There was another beggar with a sign saying he was hungry. I asked him what he wanted to eat, said I'd buy it for him. He seemed unenthusiastic but agreed to a bagel. I shopped quickly and when I came out, the guy was gone. No, I don't think they ran him off too. And yes I know it makes a better story if it's the new store, and the same beggar, but oh well.
