Despite the creation of the Homeless Ambassadors (thanks to the liberals on the Homeless Task Force) now walking around downtown politely asking bums not to urinate and poop in public places, the bad behavior continues. They’ve also tried to reason with them not to scatter dumpster trash, don’t abandon clothing and junk wherever you feel like it. Don’t swipe our grocery shopping carts, they are not luggage carriers. Please don’t do drugs and alcohol until you can’t stand up. We don’t want you sleeping on the sidewalks. They ask them not to molest shoppers in the downtown…they ask a lot of things, but it’s still going on.
They walk into coffee shops bumming change or asking for a free cup of coffee, in most places this is against the house rules, but few will complain…our liberals think that’s uncool. These bums often look like walking petri dishes while hovering around the entrances to shops, smoking thier cigarettes and sipping their free coffee.
Sure isn’t very appealing to see a lice infested bum walk out of the bathroom as you enter. I’ve seen customers turn around and walk away..probably going to wait until they get home, but that’s sad. Customer’s shouldn’t be intimidated by these bums. And then I think about the poor kids that must clean to bathrooms at McDonald’s after the bums use it. This is one of the many haunts for bums and they’re always just hanging around and smoking or drinking…they always seem to have cigaretters and booz, theft I guess.
I was standing in line at Safeway when a bum walks up behind me and starts yelling at the cashier who was returning change to a customer, “Hey Sir! Sir! Sir! Where’s the nearest ATM machine? The cashier didn’t look his way and he started to ask again…then I turned around to him and said, “Hey he’s with a customer.” But, he didn’t wait. “Sir! Where’s the nearest ATM machine?” This time the clerk replied,”There’s a bank right outside, across the parking lot” and he pointed the direction. Obviously this guy wasn’t too observant or too bright or too polite. My guess, he was another new obnoxious arrival.
Welcome to Chico Mr. Bum, we love you to see you here. We’ve got plenty of citizens who will give you money, buy you food, buy you booze and we’ve got lots of free beds at the missions too. There’s more food and more clothes for you there. You can wear donated clothes and toss them away when the start to stink. Oh, and the ambulance service here is great too. You get a fast ride to the E-R every time you get drunk and nobody minds. Because we love you and we’re so happy you are here! We love you taking our money…using up our resources…peeing on our doorsteps, sleeping in the park…
