What if the Homeless Gave You Money?
www.youtube.com
It's easy to give to someone that you feel needs help, but is it as easy to receive?
This is something I think I've always struggled with. Unfortunately, receiving from someone often feels like you are being pitied and given charity, even if that's not the case. This was a pretty genius idea on this guys part: have a guy who people believe to be homeless try to give to them instead. Why? To make him feel like he is rich enough to give.
I was really saddened by the reactions though, like...why act so jerkish? Why act so rude? Is it really so bad that someone wants to do something nice for you, or are you the only one that's allowed to be in that position of giving power? Thankfully, there were a few nice people in the mix.
Even the maker of the video (fousey, who's pretty well known for his pranks), didn't expect these kind of responses:
Going into this video, the end goal wasn't quite sure. You can never be sure because you can never know how people will react. It's a completely different video depending on if people react positively or negatively. This video wasn't one of those, "oh let's see if people offer us money." It was, "let's see how people feel about themselves when someone who is classified as "lesser" than them on societies class ladder offers them money." The results were not expected and not wanted. It doesn't matter how much you have in life if what you have in life takes away from you being humble. At the end of the day, even the most poor man can be the most rich depending on how much love he has in his heart. feel free to share.

So, would you let someone who has less, give you something instead?

Definitely thought this was staged until I saw that last guy. he made me just as angry as the "homeless" guy was!

@Sjeanyoon Yeah I wasn't too positive on if it was all real or not but that last one....like, there's NO way that was a paid actor! The guy who made the video said he's gonna put up more unedited clips I guess because people were questioning the authenticity of it all.
