I have no problem with helping others, however. Perhaps the homeless guys are different in your town...they certainly don't strike any chord of sympathy with me. Some of them we know even steal from our store.
Homeless people are pretty much the same across the developed world. Many are addicted to alcohol or drugs or both and steal to eat and to buy drugs. It's what they have to do, they live in that alternative universe where they have to survive day-to-day amongst the rest of us.
I'm not sure what you expect of them; are you?
