Shopping, Hair Appointments
A woman walking down the street when was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for a couple of dollars for dinner.
She took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some wine with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless woman told her.
"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" she asked.
"No, I don't waste time shopping," the homeless woman said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?" she asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!"
"Well," the woman said, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight. "
This shocked the homeless woman. "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I mean, like, I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting..."
To which the woman warmly replied, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine."
