Do you feel sympathy when you see a beggar on the streets? Would you drop a few coins, or even buy them a meal? We’re not saying those are bad things to do, but you might want to be a bit more careful with your kindness.
A 60-year-old woman was seen begging on a bridge in China, and a kind soul had decided to buy the old lady some food.
The old lady, however, seemed to have a different idea. After the kind soul left, the old lady was seen throwing all the food she was given into the nearby rubbish bin.
The entire process had been captured on camera, and began to circulate online.
This damning evidence for China’s beggars only reinforced many people’s distrust of them. It is rather infamous that many of China’s beggars on the streets belong to large syndicates, and are “begging” as a sort of business.
There were many stories of such “beggars” being seen with luxury items like smartphones or even cars, showing just how lucrative human kindness is.
However deplorable such behaviour are, they should still not stop you from showing kindness and generosity to those who truly need them, of course. We should not let these people ruin those who really need help.
