Resistence is useless
I gave some money to a beggar today. He was a class act. I'd been getting my hair cut - first time ever cut by an African - so I'm coming out, and this guy approaches me, really friendly but respectful.
"Hello mate, you wouldn't - actually before I start can I just say your hair is lovely - that's a great cut you got there - would you have thirty cent?"
I gave him 50c and he went on to someone else.
His pitch was perfect, down to the amount requested - who could resist?
