All in the timing

5 Dec


This is a beggar I did not give anything to – mainly because I couldn’t attract his attention. He’s genuinely disabled: his shirt is open at the back to accommodate his hunchback. I tried to attract his attention – I would have given him R50, but the lights turned green, and in Joburg you don’t dare delay anyone. I would have given so much more money during this campaign if it were not for the timing. It’s amazing how beggars don’t pay attention, so even when I try to flag them down, they don’t notice, and the opportunity is missed.
