    I have story regarding this post. I was on a vacation in an island few years ago and was driving alone at night in a remote jungle area when suddenly one of the tires blew up. Before I went on that road trip , I had stopped at a gas station to get something to eat. A man walked up to me and asked for $3.00. After I gave him the money then he asked me if I interested to know what he was going to do with the money. I said No,  because its none of my business.. Giving you the money was between me and my God and what you do with the money is between you and your God. He smiled and said he was going to buy some beer.....

    I then drove off and after driving for about 3-4 miles, one of the tires blew up and I found out there was no spare tire in the car. There was no houses and not a sinlge human being around. After sitting 15 minutes inside the car , I suddenly saw the same guy appear whom I had given money earlier and he asked me what was wrong. After I told him about the flat tire he went to look .....after few minutes he came back and said you can go now.......I came out of my car to see if he was really serious and indeed the tire looked like was fixed. I turned around to ask him how he did it.......there was no one there !!. I drove another 2 miles to reach my destination.

    The next day, I took the car to a garage just to make sure everything was o.k. The man at the garage looked at the tire, there was a about 6 inch of duct tape stuck on the inner part of the tire . He pulled off the duct tape because he thought it was trash somehow got stuck while driving but within few seconds all the air came out . The man jumped up because of what had just happened and could not believe his eyes and for the past 6-7 hours I have been wondering how the hell did he fill it with air.....

    so, YES I will give the money....

      If someone asked me for maybe a $1 or $2 for the lottery, I might be entertained enough and give it to him or her. Remember there are angels in disguise!

        I have no problem with letting someone go ahead of me to buy lottery tickets but I draw the line at giving them the money to buy them too. Hit With Stick
