- Concept : An MMT story always starts with 'Today' and ends with 'MMT.' All stories are limited to 300 characters. We would love to hear your story. So, what's got you thinking today?
- If your story isn't published on our homepage, please don't feel offended. We love reading all of your submissions, but we can't possibly publish them all. Note: If your MMT story gives us something to think about, it will be published.
I always hate having leftovers from a restaurant, because I never end up eating them later. The one time I ended up with some leftovers, I ended up spending a lot of time just trying to find a homeless person to give it to, because I'm certainly not going to eat it. I didn't find anyone, though :(
Thats rude. I'm sorry, but if you were a very hungry person on the street, just waiting for food because you can't afford it, then someone with leftovers walks by you, and they did what you did, what would you do? That man deserves food. That's just wrong. I'm sorry, but it's true. I'm 12 years old, and I shouldn't need to think of this.
I agree that this person would have deserved it...if it had happened.
Actually, though, I'm the person who "posted" this, and the real story had nothing to do with ignoring anyone or spilling anything. It was a reminder to appreciate what you have. Thanks for ruining my story and making me lose my faith in this website, moderator. That's what really MMT.
It very much sounded as if you had turned your nose and left the man to struggle on his own. I certainly received that impression from the sound of things, and that's a matter of your own ignorance in not trying to help a person in need.
I think the real thing that should MMT is that there is a person who would've appreciated it more, had he had it at all. But your being inconsiderate led to 2 people without anything, and no one appreciating the food at all. Go out of your way to be nice to people, please. It can make such a difference in their lives, with minimal negative impact on yours.
So someone who is without shelter asks you for food, and you decline, which you are in within every right to do, you paid for the food, it belongs to you. If your suggesting karma then your fucking stupid.
So if it's your right does that mean it isn't morally wrong?
You can walk around exercising your 1st amendment right and calling every black person you run into the N word but that is certainly morally wrong.
The person of this story is a jerk
sorry but its true
if this wasn't what you were getting at you wrote it wrong
Although it may seem mean- I would probably do the same thing.
If that homeless person wanted your pants because theirs were ripped, would you strip them off? Sure, you may have 10 more pairs at home, and enough money to buy more- but you just wouldn't do it.
If someone came up to me and asked me for my food, I would 1) be very offended. How do they know I have enough to feed myself/family and 2) probably want to get the heck out of there.
Alright haven't you guys noticed that the person who posted this is CC and they commented an said this never really happened. they just wanted to mkae a point. and again this never really happened.
And CC don't give up hope on this website. You can't blame people for getting mad consdiering they thought it really happened.
I'm assuming about 90% of the things posted on here are fake like this one, which really makes the site rather pointless. But regardless, I really don't see why someone should have to give their food away to some bum. I work hard for my money; I shouldn't have to feel guilty because I don't want to waste my money on some loser who can't keep himself fed. If he's so damn hungry, he should grow a garden in his little shopping cart. People used to survive quite successfully before money was invented.
Seriously, did no one read the comment from the OP saying it didn't happen? And even if it had, you would have to give them some credit for realizing what they did and actually owning up to it. Most people would probably just pretend it never happened if this happened to them. This is supposed to make you think about what's important in life. Maybe instead of calling the OP names, we could try taking a look at our own lives?
Love how everyone is acting like the OP is such a terrible person for ignoring this guy.. come on, really? Don't understand how someone who is able-bodied is regarded as someone to have sympathy for when they are just as capable of making some sort of income as the next person. Also, who HASN'T ignored a homeless person's requests, honestly. Some people on here act like they're all saintly - ha.
