Yup , that’s a no.
I have a lot of opinions, just ask the wife. Some good, some bad, and others down right ugly!
But then, they are just MY opinions.

Just wow. So, now a hard-working business owner putting in 12 hour days to put food on the table and a roof over the heads of his 4 children is “entitled” and gets called out as such for not giving more to those using his premises as their own personal toilet. That right there is pretty much everything that’s wrong with society today.

Funny thing about respect - its a two-way street and is earned - not given.
Curious to know exactly what makes you think it's acceptable for one person to use another's personal property as their own toilet/garbage dump - and then not only expect, but demand a hand out from them also?

I don't give panhandlers money, that IMO is not the solution. It actually rewards negative behaviour. But what I do support is supportive and affordable housing. That IMO is the solution to homelessness and prevention.

"He's mad at this", "They are doing this", "They stole that", "They destroyed my stuff"

Hey guess what? That is life. Things happen, its unfortunate, move on its not the end of the world. Be the better individuals instead of sinking to that level of disrespect. I see no difference from them and the individuals in this forum too stubborn to do anything to resolve it aside from saying how bad they think they got it in life. I'm sorry the homeless people are stealing from your cars, and taking dumps in your yards, but count your blessings and be fortunate for what you do have.

Merry Christmas.

yes, i am thankful to them for causing havoc in my neighborhood, making me feel uncomfortable when going for walks, causing me to install security cameras, and have hazmat teams on speed dial to clean up their *bleep*.. thank you!!!

You are fricken unreal.
People should overlook and just be thankful
for what they have.Things they have because
they probably got up and went to work .
The things that the criminal homeless are stealing
from us or damaging in some way.
If a person steals or damages someone else's property
they are not getting any respect from me.
I am sick of hearing that if a person does not support the
homeless and the shelters that they are just bad bad people.
NO! They are most likely just fed up people.
If you want to be such a do gooder then invite 1 or 2 homeless
drug addicts into your home over the Christmas Holidays,
Let us know how it goes.
