Ransom Money

My friend Stacey was recently with her mother on a trip...while there, she encountered a homeless man with the following sign:

"My family was kidnapped by Ninjas. Spare change will go towards the ransom money."

I would give him money for the creative approach.

Peterson had to give that guy money, right??? (grin)

I'd wanna know first what the total ransom amount is. If it's $10,000, then giving a buck or two is the proverbial drop in the bucket and not really worth messing with.

That is up there with the sign that I saw once that said, "Why lie, I need a beer!"

LOL

With that kind of creativity...couldn't this person find a job?

I've been known to give money for creativity. I once saw a sign that said, "Will work for food? H--L no, I need a drink!" At least he was honest.

Gotta give the guy credit for thinking outside of the box!

GoteeMan said...

well, you gotta give him kudos for creativity... or a mental disorder - hard to know which!?!
