    rynny got a reaction from Alpha in Wouldn’t be Christmas without it   
    13th, not quite close enough to Xmas to do that. My sister's is the 21st so even closer and she got to do that a few times as we were growing up. 
    For me it's the sorry can't come out as not got much cash because it's Xmas, and working in jobs that is busiest around this time. 
    Really I'm just a moaning arse 😂

    Or he was asked what the plan for January is and gave the "well we haven't got a lot of money so won't be doing much" card, so when we do try and sign someone they aren't putting the price up because we have cash to spend. Or it is a case of we don't have a lot cash splash. Either way does it really matter? And what has it got to do with the myth that we have a bad period just after Xmas, going into the new year?

    I'm sorry but they are your words not his. He actually said that Wednesday are a huge club, nothing bad about Derby. His only criticism towards the club was that the football that Rowett was going to play didn't suit his style, not exactly wrong was he? We can't criticise Rowett’s football and then criticise a player who also criticised Rowett's football, just makes us hypocrites.

    Appalling. Yesterday i put a post on and then removed it about the actions of a couple of guys treating a homeless guy in Derby appallingly. 
    Having read subsequent posts (not the ones taking the mick out me mind :-D)  about how we treat people i think its worth sharing.

    As alpha said we could all be better people at times, im guilty of head down walking past homeless people at times, but there are ways to behave and ways not.

    Not going to post too much because I end up ranting but in my late teens I went through a bad stage of depression and ended up on the streets for a short time. My own undoing really. I was angry and deserved to be on everyone's poo list. 
    But anyway, it was scary. Like proper scary. Do you know how the world looks when you're one of them? When you're on the outside? I can't explain it but it is ducking horrible. You think we live in a civilised country of vast majority of good people but that only if you're 'in'. It felt like you're stripped of any sort of status among the society. 
    I tell you, I felt so angry and aggressive towards people that it's changed the way I view people for the rest of my life. 
    I'll never forget going for help. I'd headed down towards London where I figured the chances would be better but I kind of stopped in Oxford for a week or so. I reached out for help and there wasn't much about. I probably could have found a way out but I can't explain how much angry I was. Young and dumb innit. 
    Anyway, I ended up at this kitchen to get food and there was this guy making jacket potatoes. He was a black fella and had one of those smiley faces. The way he was with everyone made the room like an excitable classroom. The rough sleepers there were laughing out loud at the shittest jokes. Like the stuff you do to kids where you pull a pound out their ear type stuff. The atmosphere was great. I couldn't be angry in there. Just lots of giggling. Then the police came in and arrested some fella for fighting. He didn't exactly go peacefully until the black dude and his assistant had a word and he listened to them straight away. I guess because they saw him as a person.
    Then this girl came and sat down with me and you should have seen her. She might have been pretty once but the heroin had done it's work. Sunken eyes, messed up teeth, weird rashes, yellow skin etc. Like a proper movie looking junkie. But she got a Mothers Day card out and started showing everyone. She cried her eyes out about how she'd had her daughter taken off her and how she wants her back. The black fella came and listened to her for a bit and then a copper dropped in (I guess they do that a lot?) and he listened to her. But nobody lectured her or patronized her. 
    Anyway just made me think that if you read the first part of her life story that you'd think that she deserved to have her daughter taken off her. But I think I got a proper understanding of what despair is. And it made me do what I had to do to come back over to mankind and leave that poor girl in the leper camp. The dogshit of society that were only human for as long as they are in that room. 
    That's the point I'm making. They're treated like a sub species. If you don't give money or food then it might be decent just to treat them like they're human. Like they still have social needs and boxes to tick. They're not feral! 
    That's my reason for giving them money over food/drink. I am worried that a coffee, although I'm sure is appreciated more often than not, is kind of making that social abyss real. 
    Will they spend it on drugs? Drink? Maybe, maybe not. Is there some conceivable kind of butterfly effect where they hurt someone because they need drugs and you've helped their habit etc etc. Yeah. But I struggle to value the life of Mr Public after seeing it from the other side and there's plenty of vile behaviour and intentions between us civilised folk. We pretend a lot. Pretend to care and uphold our moral code. But you know theres so many parasites who hide in our society that will give themselves any excuse to turn a blind eye to something or wrong someone if nobody else noticed. 
    Dunno if I'm explaining my thinking very well. Social media probably does a better job of showing our ugly face. 
    But we wish each other good morning, hold doors open and then on the drive home behave like complete cnuts. And we walk past the homeless who aren't worthy of our time. Why not? Because "I'm too busy" or "I didn't hear him" or "he'll spend it on drugs" etc etc. 
    Sometimes it's nice to just give someone without a house your attention. 
    Proper preaching here. Lol. Starting pulling out the bible in a minute. 
    But yeah, there is a barrier between us scumbag that live under a roof and those scumbags that don't. There really is. And being in that room in Oxford was a real eye opener to how kind of divided we are.
