"The Beggar" 
 
The post described a 59-year-old man named Franklin Jones who authorities said was arrested for public intoxication and urinating in public. 
“Mr. Jones has been begging for money at the intersection of Gause and Interstate 10 for well over a year. Mr. Jones has been offered a job on multiple occasions, but chooses not to work because he makes a better living by begging people for money,” the department wrote. 
After his arrest, officers searched the man. 
“Mr. Jones was subsequently arrested and found with over $800 cash in his pockets.  
(For those of you wondering, Mr. Jones’ money was not seized. It is his to keep),” the department wrote.  
“We continue to offer help, but when you can make $800 in less than a week by ‘begging’, some people say, ‘Why get a real job?’ We’ve found jobs for people. We’ve offered assistance by bringing some of these individuals to rehab facilities. Bottom line is, it’s up to the individual person if they want help or not.  All we can do is guide them in the right direction. We can’t force people to do things,” the department added.  
Authorities said that it is perfectly legal for individuals to beg for money, which complicates the problem.
 
"2 Quarters or a Dollar Bill"  
A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer,  
'This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.'  
 
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other,  
then calls the boy over and asks, 'Which do you want, son?'  
 
The boy takes the quarters and leaves the dollar.  
 
'What did I tell you?' said the barber. 'That kid never learns!'  
 
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy  
coming out of the ice cream store & says ;  
'Hey, son! May I ask you a question?  
Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?'  
 
The boy licked his cone and replied,  
'Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!'  
 
*I'm thinking that this kid could have a  
brilliant career in the Canadian Civil Service.
