Homeless dude  
I really haven't felt so guilty over "so little" for a long time. When I was in philly last saturday, my dad and I were just walking around, killing time until we were supposed to meet this landlord in 1.5 hours, and we walked past this yuppie bar/deli thing called marathon. I think they're a chain and they might not be that yuppie, but whatever. Point is, there was this homeless dude sitting at one of the tables outside and the manager came out and started hassling him, talking to him like he was a 5 year old. I had this impulse to sit down next to him and say "Sid! Hey, how's it going? You didn't have to bring a sandwich, we were going to get something here!" And then take the manager aside and tell him that this was my uncle and he's been going through a lot.

But I didn't.

I walked by.

Like everyone else in this guy's life.
