Someone mentioned that being offended is the new national past-time. I upped the ante by being offended by her offended-ness

Dude almost has the concept down. He’s got the cardboard matting, but he’s still sleeping on the cold sidewalk.

Right after I took the picture, this very righteous Berkeley women stopped and said to me:

“I often give a dollar to people like that.”

“I often do, too,” I said.

“Especially if I take their picture,” she said. Then she righteously walked off, having done her good deed for the day by helpfully suggesting that somebody else do a good deed.

PS. I wouldn’t be the least surprised if I’ve given out a hell of a lot more money to my fellow street persons over the years than this person ever did. Call it a hunch.

  1. Those self righteous people leave a very bad aftertaste in my mouth. Glad you upped the ante. We are the righteous people who look down on the self-righteous people.
