Ok. So tonight i went out clubbing. I don't usually club but I fancy the crap outta the girl i was invited by. Anyways... We pre drink. Before I even arrive in a club i have paid a barman and a bus driver tips whether they like it or not. Being a naive and drunken gentleman i also give the grand sum of 5 british pounds to two homeless men, One of whom openly admits to having stabbed his mothers boyfriend (after the man apparently threatened to kill his mother.).
Anyways.... Later in the night i spot the two homeless folks i have so generously given (an admittedly meagre amount of) money to harrassing and chasing some mouthy drunkards around town. Being a responsible man i approach the nearest two policemen (and women) to report what i have seen only to recieve this response. Word for word i was told "we are not talking to you. You are drunk.".
Insulted by what i felt was a lapse in the british judicial system i went and sat on a bench in the middle of town in "political protest" and told anyone who would listen my story. Later in the night who shold pass me by but one of the two homeless folks i had given money to. He asks me what it is i am doing and, when i explain, he returns that when you go against the law in britain you don't win and actuallty, if the police did pay any attention to me, i would be distracting from their more important duties of adressing actual crimes. This made sense to me and still does. Strangely enough he also told me he had made £285 in that one night of begging (which is a third pf what i earn a month) and he paid for my taxi home. Anyways. I am still drunk and need to sleep.
You guys feel free to state what you think of this anecdote. I am going to catch up on my sleep and/or be sick in the loo. I look forwards to hearing your thoughts.
