    Not surprising.

    What I understand about homeless persons is that their possessions are of immense value to them, and that they can easily get stolen.

    He wouldn’t want to advertise what he has in his bag because he might have something that other homeless people would not mind fighting him for.Report

    That’s true and he said as much and I said I understood. He agreed that I understood him. And you’re that would be why. But I think that furthers the point that Beggars Can be Choosers–and in fact probably need to be in some moments.Report

    That’s what he gets for stopping by an Anglican church. The Catholics would have had some black bags for sure.Report

      No doubt. The irony of course is that the reason we have the biodeg. bags is that the environmentalist people in the congregation kept telling us we shouldn’t have our old (large black, no see-through) bags. I just find it very odd that so many people are so insistent on what type of garbage bags I should use.

      Maybe I use should tell the justice group people about this and they could have a fight with the environmental group? To the winner goes the choice of bag du garbage.Report
