Random NYC Tip.5 (Buy Candy On The Train)

November 3, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We all know the pitch, “Excuse me ladies and gentlemen, I’m not here trying to sell candy for a basketball team, I’m just selling candy to stay out of trouble and make something out of myself. I got Reese’s, Starburst, M&M…..” I say, why not help these kids out, they deserve some kind of acknowledgement for trying to be productive. They could just be hanging on the block making themselves a target and a stereotype. C’mon, what would they really be doing if they didn’t have their M&M hustle? They would be hustling something else, and we know it.
I consider giving those kids money an act of charity with a cookie crunch/ nougat receipt. The same thing kind of goes for the break-dancing kids on the train too, but sometimes you don’t want to give them your money when they nearly kick you in the face, trying to do a back flip- Everyone knows the A and D trains jolt/jerk when it approaches 125th Street.

    I am skeptical of these people where did they get the candy from I remember my friends use to steal the candy from the kids trying to raise it for a team and selling it to get money in their pocket I think if they can do that they can do something even more productive with themselves as well. It is good that they have an entrepreneurial spirit but you can’t sell candy all of your life. What is the next step?
