There are two attitudes that the homeless face that can be the most irritating: the overly sweet “Oh you poor dear, how can you stand it,” and the “Oh you scum of the earth” attitude. Neither is really helpful. Then the look of shock and horror that come over some people’s faces when they realize you are homeless. The people who just accept you in a matter of fact way are the best, the ones who realize they could be where you are easily and that there are ways for the homeless to not only cope but also extricate themselves with the situation, usually with the right kind of help. The best kind of help, by the way, is help with a “light touch.”
