There’s a trend in the River City and it’s nothing to hang your hat on. Panhandling is nothing new to anyone who has ever set foot in even the most rural of metropolitan areas. However, we at the Sac Rag have noticed something new; the in-store solicitation.
Now I understand the view that everyone falls on hard times and needs a helping hand, but can not this business be conducted on public domain? Is it ok that I am trouble/irritated by this trend? Is there anything we can do to discourage this behavior? What’s next? The hand held Point of Sale device where we can just swipe and go?
Perhaps this IS just us, but I’d love to read your thoughts. It’s happening in your city people, own it. Comment away.
