New Shades

We were heading back from the fish market in Cebu when a kid approached us for money. Now I’m anti-money but would happily give bread or something else that I know that the kid would eat rather than sniff with Rugby glue. But I had just bought a brand new spectacular pair of sunglasses for just under P50 at Gasiano. The reason I buy cheap sun glasses is I lose them all the time aswell as break them. So rather lose P50 than P18,000 on a pair of glasses.. anyway offered the kid my old sunglasses which he rejected for P1.00 from April maybe my sunglasses aren’t for the younger generation… I must be getting old. Anyway April said afterwards its likely the kid was worried I would accuse him of stealing the sunglasses afterwards which is why he didn’t take them. One thing I have noticed though is some of the people asking for money aren’t even real beggars just the fact you are white is enough to encourage them to ask you because your likely to give them coins. Another reason why I don’t. I would advise giving donations to one of the charities that are “real” without top heavy executives supporting them emptying the trough of coins before it reaches the people who need it.
