Hello to all who read my blog. I have talked in two other posts about a homeless man I have met. I have not given him a name. He is a veteran and waiting for “housing” to open up. Either way regardless, the other day I let him sleep on the floor in the back room where I could see his feet. He slept for hours. I worked and kept quiet so he could sleep, he was out of the below zero temps here in the Chicago IL area.
Our talks are very interesting. For example, he took a empty gas can off the shelf, and a lighter and said would you sell me this? I said of course I would. Yes, he has a tiny bit of money coming in, but despite that when I thought he was serious, he said but-YOU CANNOT SELL ME A LOTTO TICKET OR BEER after 11 pm right? I said yes. He said which is more dangerous? I said GOOD POINT, seems as I work as a gas station.
We also talked about the bible. He had valid points but was a bit off. I just don’t agree with him or try to prove my point, just said let me ponder that. He mentioned that everyone he meets on the bus has to DEFEND their opinion and you don’t. You are very honest.
I will talk more later but wanted to share this story today.
