Christmas Compassion

Friends of Homeless

Friends of the Homeless

What a beautiful “Christmas” story of a Golfer being kind to a “homeless” Men.

A golfer was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly “dirty” and “shabby-looking” homeless man who asked him for a “couple” of dollars for dinner.

The golfer, being in the Christmas spirit, took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”

No, the homeless man replied, “I had to stop drinking years ago.”

“Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?” the golfer asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. “I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”

“Well,” the golfer said, “I’m not going to give you money.” Instead, I’m going to take you home for a “warm shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my lovely wife.”

The homeless man was astounded. “Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that?”

The golfer kindly assured him, “That’s okay. It’s important for my wife to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and golf.”
