I just saw some new Napoli chicken on the news that looked damn tasty.
They piss me off so much especially when there is someone obviously in need asking for money on the same street.
Like. "oh you have some change to spare and there’s a homeless lady with an infected foot asking for spare coins? nah forget that. look at me! "
I agree, begging when not in need is stealing from the most needy in society. It is a despicable thing to do when you are taking money away from really needy people.
The pizza chain… Napoli’s
The report further pointed out that these backpacks are a product of the social class, and only some backpackers with high living standards and “white privilege” are likely to do so.
they are a product of asian peoples social class actually. they view these guys in a high status for whatever reason, when in my opinion they are near the bottom.
they are taking money away from actual homeless peoples pockets because they didn’t want to be responsible enough to pay for their whole trip. it doesn’t get much lower than that, but taiwanese people think they are cute or something.
exactly. it’s not a white privilege thing-a-ma-jig.
it’s stupid people doing stupid things
I saw two buskers/ beg packers today while in one of the touristy areas of Kaohsiung,
my wife asked why won’t their family pay for a ticket home. When i told her they didn’t want to go home and wanted to keep travelling but for other people to pay for it, lets just say she didn’t hold back on her criticism.
I just read this story, a list of the worst types of tourists, including begpackers.
Or the family also doesn’t want to fund a begpackers vacation with hard earned money.
Some may even prefer if they didn’t return
And this was linked in the comments. Ouch!
Everything she says is true. You shouldn’t need to explain such things but these people have zero self awareness.
Just walked past this guy at Taoyuan train station, asking for money for his travels. And no, I’m not blurring his face because he deserves the shame.
I can’t tell is there any English or Thai or Indo on that sign? He’s missing a whole lot of Taoyuan area potential scam opportunity if not.
Chinese and English on the sign
