We were at a Walmart in Phoenix tonight when we were approached by a lady. She said her baby needed diapers and food. I asked her what size diapers. She said size six. I gave her some pullups and asked her what kind of food she wanted for her baby. She said cooked chicken, bread and avocadoes. I told her I would buy her food. I went in and bought her a cooked chicken, bread and bananas. I brought them back out to her. She said thank you and stayed where she was with an older guy whom she introduced as her dad.
I think that I was likely lied to and she just wanted money for drugs or whatever. However, I cannot walk away from somebody who says they have a hungry baby/child.
What would you do? Walk away? Give her money? Or buy food for her?
I'm not looking for affirmation either way. I'm just curious. We don't really have homeless people where we live because it is bitterly cold and a really low unemployment rate.
