Money

I was walking near my apartment on a Saturday night to meet someone. A man on the street asked me to give him money. I used to work for a homelessness organization and now give my time and make sandwiches etc. but do not give out money on the street, so I walked by. He said as I passed “Pretty girl ” after asking for money. Now, I may be a pretty girl, but he has no right to say this to me on the street! Especially after asking me for money.
