This is a question Tramps

Tramps, burn-outs and the homeless insane all go to making life that little bit more interesting.
Gather around the burning oil-drum and tell us your hobo-tales.

Remember, all tramps are someones child/brother/sister...
My little sister took a somewhat unorthodox route into adult life and ended up with a social circle that contained people that most wouldn't piss on if they were on fire. Despite my family's most extreme efforts*, she ended up on the streets taking god knows what. We think she was raped at least once, probably more. Pretty much the kind of place you don't expect many to come back from. My parents spent years just waiting for the call from the police/hospital to tell us she'd been found dead.

Thankfully, she hit rock bottom before she actually ended up dead and somehow found the strength to turn her life around quite monumentally. With support and some pretty amazing help from local services, she is now back to being the fun and happy person she was before. Furthermore, she has more respect for everything and everyone around her than anyone else I have ever known.

I know this is supposed to be a comedy QOTW, but before you post your hilarious story about how you pissed on a homeless guy or kicked a busker in the face, perhaps take a second to think that these people are quite often in horrific places in their lives; rarely through choice and sometimes treading a fine line between life and death. Being a twat to them is not only incredibly unnecessary but might actually send them over the edge. 50p/not being an arse isn't really much to ask of any decent human.

*anyone who just assumes these things could never happen in their family or that they would never let something like this happen to someone they know can go forth and populate. You have no idea

oh lighten the fuck up francis, while im sure we're all delighted your sister got her act together, this board is for mildly amusing anecdotes pertaining to a given subject, not sanctimonious guilt tripping by proxy. most of the shite on here is made up anyway.

You can be mildly amusing without being a cunt.

...you can be a mildly amusing cunt. Either will do.

I agree whole heartedly
My post was aimed at the people who are not posting mildly amusing anecdotes but examples of cuntish behaviour

with your post and your subsequent reply.

Or that one chap
who admitted that he and a bunch of his friends watched a tramp beat the shit out of a trampette, leaving her bleeding on the ground.

Without doing anything about it.

Couldn't agree more, mate
Done a load of work with various homeless charities over the years as a youth worker. Seen some pretty grim stuff and seen some pretty dispicable excuses for human beigns along the way who seem to enjoy fucking over homeless people for kicks. There is humor in this QOTW; but there's also a nasty element for some to demonstrate just how cuntish they are.

Homelessness is fucking horrible. Simple as that really...

I've always wondered.
Is this misplaced anger the result of inadequate gonads?

That and the fact he's got tiny balls.
