Darby and the friendly homeless woman

Here in LA, homeless people are much more prevelant than at home. Like on just about every street corner, in some areas. So when you're leaving a restaurant with leftovers and don't even have a fridge to store such things in, of course the normal decent thing to do is find someone who might want to eat an untouched half of your chicken sandwich, right?

This has worked out well for us in the past, good modelling for our children, kindness to someone less fortunate, and a full stomach that was going to be empty. Win Win Win.

Darby, Lyric and Ollie at her side, finds an older homeless woman, looking through a dumpster for some food. She offers her sandwich. The lady turns to her and replies. 'No I don't want your sandwich. I want you to eat your sandwich. And get sick. And die. Bitch."

Darby throws the sandwich in the dumpster and scurries away, moving the kids along.

Lyric, perplexed, only has one question. "Why was that lady so mean to us, Mommy? Doesn't she understand.... We're homeless too?"
