    Because homeless people generally don't make good choices.
    But to be fair it should be his/her choice. At that moment in time a packet of **** might of meant more than a Kebab BUT still a really nice gesture from Ziggy.

    Because I the guy doing something for absolutly nothing for the dude wanted to give him food. the fact i found the fiver is irrelevant i could of just as easily gone and bought myself a pint. I walked away knowing that guy was a little less hungry for a while im not fuelling anyones bad habits never will thats my personal preference.
    You did the right thing. Buying him food is much better than just giving him the money.

    The guy should be appreciative that he got given something.

    I once picked up a penny from the floor (see a penny pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck), and the security guard told me to hand it over as it was the property of Tesco. I thought he was joking, until he started getting aggressive over the matter. :lolwut:

    I found £20 on the roadside on the way to work. There was no chance in hell that anyone would come back and find it (quiet country road) so I used it to buy sweets for my workmates.

    What a day that was.

    wow,,nice one dude..very genuine move..

    in my defense the guy received 2 cigarettes from passers by in the time i spent with him and its quite common around clubs and that for people to give a homeless person a cigarette its normally what they ask me for instead of money

    It's £20... pick it up, put it in your pocket and then forget about it. Nobody is having a heart attacked over twenty quid.

    If in a shop you have to assume there are cameras, I wouldn't risk it
    Risk what...?

    I think if it was just on the floor I'd keep it. However, if I'd seen someone drop it then I'd give it back to them.

    I definitely wouldn't hand it in to the shop - reckon the person would keep it for themselves to be honest.

    Not necessarily, I found £90 at work and handed it in. No one came back to claim it in the next 4 weeks so I got to keep it

    However I did find £20 on the floor in the bank and kept it, I think I have mixed conscience

    I have strict moral principles so I would therefore never pick it up.
