Shopping with a difference.

Yesterday i went to a meeting in town,after this i was free so i visited a favorite pub of mine for some hours.I did not have anything for tea,but thats not a problem.In and out,in and out they come, sometimes the same people,drug addicts trying to sell there stolen goods from the town center.I bought 3 packs of ham,2 bars of chocolate,a can of shaving foam,and a can of deodorant.I passed on the pork chops,cheese,t shirts,jeans,dvds,various nik naks,though i was tempted by some nice candles.Are you going to criticize me from the comfort of your warm house believing that i am adding to their misery,that i am a part of this vicious circle of drug addiction and shoplifting.Our that i am helping them,making that cold night they sleep out in a bit more tolerable.

muffin, the only thing I caution you about here is do continue to beware of the pork chops.

I think you have to go where your sense of compassion takes you. However, I must say, I love pork chops!—but only knowing they’ve been properly refrigerated—not sure that is something I’d want to buy from a “street vendor.”

You like pork chops sensuous,i will eat them if they are cooked in oil with herbs and roast potatoes,cooked in the oven.Let me know when they are ready.

Huge dilemma, for it seems like you might have given them a chance to eat ... but then, they already did have the pork chops, right??

I'd have passed, partly on the grounds that I don't want to be an 'enabler'. Been there, done that - and only got an invisible badge saying 'good hearted but naive'.

You didn't have anything for tea so you bought a can of shaving foam from a drug addict? I'm glad I don't eat at your house.
