Portland Street Life

Had lunch with my son today. He tells me two cars have had their windows broken out on his block in the last week. 

Safeway Signature SELECT Drinking Water - 24-16.9 Fl. Oz. - $2.49

The other day he was walking home from Safeway and he noticed a small stream of water running down the street. A little farther on he came across the source of this water. A guy had five cases of the small bottles of drinking water and was cutting them with a knife. We surmise that he purchased the water using food stamps and was emptying them out to prepare to cash them in to collect the bottle deposit so he could get some cash money to buy drugs. At ten cents a bottle, five cases of bottles would net him $12.

You're very pessimistic...

or realistic.

Mileage may vary.
