Had the unfortunate pleasure of being approached by a bourbon and coke carrying drunk member of the panhandling community this afternoon in Garema Place looking for cash.
When I declined with a sorry no and continued walking he started throwing abuse in a LOUD voice (along the lines of ‘you f*&*&*g b%$#h c!@t etc). He continued this loud abuse for 30 or so seconds and then approached the next group of people walking through Garema – with a similar outcome.
If you want to panhandle:
1. Dont hold a can of Jimmy and Coke whilst doing it
2. Dont abuse the person who declines, just move onto your next victim.
