Wow, I was sitting minding my own business waiting for a bus, and this old bum comes up real close to me and starts acting aggressive and all in my face. Calling me chickenshit and pretending to kick and punch me but pulling back at the last moment. At first, I tried to just walk away from him but he followed me. Then I told him he needed help and he sarcastically asked me if I meant psychological help. Finally I had enough of his antics and being all in my face, so I told him I wasn't afraid of him and stood my ground. I'm a decent size guy and could have taken him in a fight, he was skinny and a lot lighter weight than me. He then backed off and went looking for other people to harass.
Unfortunately my cell phone battery was dead otherwise I would have called the cops on this idiot pronto.
mike_c even chimes in!May the FORCE be with you!

The fact that he said bum rather than homeless or some other innocuous title tells me it is likely true.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

They are "homeless people" when you are seeing them from the safety of your locked car. They are "bums" when they are up close and personal.
I find making eye contact and just being polite goes a long way dealing with people who are living on the street. They are not used to that.

Here they are just bums. We have corners at busy intersections where they
work in shifts passing off the same "Help" signs. They have been given the
Green light by our clueless Sarasota City Council and Police Chief...May the FORCE be with you!

He should have snatched the bum's Obamaphone from him and called 911.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
