Man Says His Uncle Offered ‘Broke’ Panhandlers a Job. When They Said ‘No,’ He Did This.

When a man witnessed two “broke” panhandlers begging for money outside a Taco Bell, he decided to go the extra mile to help the guys out — he offered them a job, according to the man’s nephew.

But Michael Wooldridge, of Muscatine, Iowa, claimed in a Facebook post that his uncle Mike’s offer was turned down.

“My Uncle Mike offered these guys a job said he was busy right now could use the help they said no so he did this !! Wow don’t give these guys any money,” Wooldridge wrote.

But Uncle Mike didn’t stop there.

Instead, the man apparently made up his own sign and stood directly behind the panhandlers. His sign read: “Offered these guys a job. They said no. Don’t give money.”

When a Facebook user asked Wooldridge how the panhandlers reacted to the stunt, he said they left — but his uncle followed them to their stop and continued holding his sign.
