Free Money for the Crip, or Free Money BECAUSE We're Crips?

Morning, Fam…

So, Guys, have you ever been out when someone out of nowhere just gave you money?  How’d it make you feel?  Did you think nothing of it?  Did it make you feel weird?

It’s happened three times to me that I can remember:  once with my ex, Teri, at the bank when this guy just gave me a random $100 and twice with Joey.

One time, we were over by the office waiting for the bus when this dude pulled up beside us.  Of course, we backed up since we didn’t know him or his intentions, but he persisted and pushed a bill into Joey’s hand and drove off.  When she looked, she only saw one “0”.  I told her to look again.  It was a Benjamin!  We were floored!

The other time, we’d walked to Sonic for shakes.  We like walking there to see people’s reactions when they see two crips in the drive-in slot.  This time, it was our turn.  We were waiting for our order when this dude gave us a random $20 and disappeared.

OK, everybody likes getting money, especially free money.  It’s cool there’re generous people, really.

My question’s, though, would they spread the love to anybody, or did they see a couple crips on the street?  I know that sounds cynical, and, don’t get me wrong, we appreciate every gift we get…I just wonder.

We like helping out people, not causes…NOBODY wants to be labelled a cause.  We know there’re people needier than us.  If we can make it happen, we will.

What you guys think?

Be good to each other.
