met this absolute nicest bloke from Jamaica in New York City a few weeks back. not appearing very well off, he came into the cafe for a small snack. I started chatting to him and discovered that he was homeless in the city; all his belongings in his bag. Towards the end of our conversation he politely asked for a dollar for a train downtown. I obliged. a few minutes later I grabbed my coffee as it was ready and came back to give him everything in my wallet for the "next few trains". haven't felt better since.
