Lets just say some of the things she said and did were terrible and you would find it hard to go back too. I hope there's a reconciliation in the future but right now I want to get my degree and get onto a PGCE. Reconciling now would definitely equal messing my degree up.

As I wrote in a threat some weeks ago, not all of them are drug addicts or drunks.
Some genuinely look in despair, and in these cases I often see no harm in giving them £2. It's not going to bankrupt me, and if it is enough for them to buy a cup of tea and some food then good.
I don't often give to the homeless, preferring to go via charities, however some weeks ago on the way to work a guy approached me asking for a bit of money, he was pretty distraught so I gave him £2. The same thing happend last week when I was on a business trip up in Sheffield.
Like I said, it's only £2 and if they are genuine then it might genuinely help them, so why not? Better than ignoring them.
I personally don't drink but I think if I were stuck out in the cold wet weather with nowhere to go I'd certainly spend £2 on a can or two of lager to help myself feel a bit better for a while.
Alcohol contains some calories too, and I think vitamin B.
In fact I might even buy some cans of lager and give them out to homeless people in the future.They can get free sandwiches from the Salvation Army.
