The skinny guy wearing a dilapidated baseball cap shuffled up to me and asked shyly if I could spare him some change. Hesitant but desperate at the same time...
"Can you spare some change?"
"I just got out of prison and they put me out on the street without a cent..."
"So how'd you end up in prison of all places?!"
"Well they picked me up off of the street where I was sleeping in some alley. I had nowhere to stay, sorry."
So without thinking much except that I was in a generous mood for some reason, I reached into my wallet and gave him a 2 euro coin.
"Is that enough?"
"Yes, yes, thanks alot..."
Right at the moment I was hoping we had reached some kind of repore, the poor homeless guy had disappeared around the corner. Say good-bye and be gone.
Never to be seen again. Oh well, there goes my two euros.
