When I was younger I would talk to people like that. Seriously, in college I had a good friend from NJ and I was walking and talking with him in the Village around 1985 and I turned and he wasn’t there. He was a few feet back sitting on a warm vent on the street talking to a bum on the vent. He gave the bum a cigarette and started smoking with him and the bum knew his name. I said “wtf??? How does he know you???”No, that's just a curmudgeon and completely understandable. I'm talking about the kind of guy who's usually near a courthouse or town hall sitting alone on a bench yelling for the invisible guy next to him to stop touching him. If you ever actually talk to them, they'll educate you on how the government does all sort of things you never imagined they would.
He said “yo I always talk to bums so I can get their views on the world and bug out.”
Lol. It became part of the routine of hanging out with him. Especially after smoking weed.
