The sign they were holding said:
"MY WIFE AND I ARE STRANDED AND HUNGRY, PLEASE HELP."
I have no problem sharing with those in need, (but for the grace of God, there go I) but I am a bit confused. I am assuming these people had nowhere to stay and no money. But they had money to purchase the cardboard and the thick black sharpie with which to make their sign.
Or, did they anticipate that they would become poor so planned ahead to bring cardboard and a sharpie?
Or, is there a Hobo Fairy that 'poofs' into existence the moment you become destitute, who solemnly hands you cardboard and a sharpie?
These and many other useless and time wasting questions were going through my head as we drove past this poor sad husband and his poor sad wife.
But, the most compelling question comes from A: "Why did she marry that homeless guy in the first place?"
