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.

Grunge is not dead
I was enjoying an afternoon pint with a friend sitting outside a pub in Oxford on a glorious day several years ago, when we suddenly hear 'excuse me guys...'

We both looked up and there's a mid-twenties bloke, thick beard, straggly hair, looking like he's been sleeping rough.

Before he even says anything we both go for the automatic response:

'No, sorry mate...'
He looked a bit surprised
'Haven't got anything to give you - sorry.'
Now he looked totally bemused...
'I'm... I'm not homeless- I was just going to ask for the time! I'm a student for fuck's sake!'

We paused for a moment, awkwardly as he was still stood there glaring at us, then my companion piped up...

'Well, have a fucking wash then - this is supposed to be a respectable university'.

I laughed my arse off... Then I felt sorry for the guy... Then I laughed my arse off some more.

I've been on the other end of this
Stopped a couple of guys in Newcastle to ask where a bar I had never been to while sober was.

I started with an 'Excuse me lads?' and was cut off with a 'Sorry mate' and they tried to avoid me. When I told them I was after directions they stopped and looked bashful at each other.

I'm not a student, I'm a bloody accountant and was wearing shirt, jeans and some converse trainers. (Trainers pointed out cause the price of them now is ridiculous, if you see a tramp wearing them they are NOT hard up.)
