It's actually quite warm out today. Way too warm for the skyways. I wish I'd had my bike, so I could ride home, but then I would've missed out on the following signs out on Nicollet.
A guy sitting on the sidewalk, eating a big slice of pizza, holding a sign that read:
At first read, I thought, "Why? Because you're already eating a slice? What about later? Why would anyone turn down food?"
Then I read the rest of the sign:
Anything will help"
Oops! This poor man wasn't turning down food, he was simply stating he didn't have any. D'oh! (on my part)
A couple blocks later, there was a kid (late teens, early twenties), holding this sign:
"Wife Kidnapted Ransom .99"
I feel bad for his wife, if he has one. It would suck to be held with such little value by the one who should value you the most.
Then I glimpsed the other side of his sign:
"Will work half assed ... "
I'm not sure how he ended that sentence, but ...
I certainly hope the first guy gets more sympathy.
