“Lady, can you spare a quarter?”

I said no and turned away.  Then I felt a pang of guilt -what if she just had some bad luck and need a helping hand?

Not so.  10 min. later the same lady was in line in front of me at the market, paying for a bottle of cheap wine with $2.50 in quarters.

It’s people like her that give honest beggars a bad name.
