How to panhandle Modern Mom 17/07/21(Fri)22:28 No. 3048 ID: 494c89 [Reply]

I used to be homeless. Here's how to panhandle and make money.

1. Be non-threatening. Don't have a huge dog that barks at people, don't get pissed off when people fuck with you (most white people won't, it's usually blacks or gang-banging messikins). Just don't be an asshole.

2. Be visibly homeless. Don't be completely clean.

3. Have a prop. This can be a wheelchair (it takes a few weeks to get the upper body strength and endurance to wheel yourself around), a cast (get one that you can take off), a cane.

4. You will make at least ten times as much money if you have a small, non-threatening dog. A dachshund is best, a chihuahua is second best. The dog should be calm and not bark at everyone - it takes a few days to train a dog not to bark at everyone.

People will ask you what you need, and a lot will offer to buy you dog food. It's sometimes possible to return the dog food for cash if they give you a receipt, but don't ask for it if they don't give it to you.

5. Be a woman, or at least an attractive man. Women make at least ten times as much money as men.

6. It helps if you have gray hair, especially a gray beard. I'm not sure how to dye hair gray though.

I've done it, Anons. I quit my job which I hate. Although my family and friends are in a panic because I don't have another crappy minimum-wage income waiting for me, I am entirely comfortable with this. I need a month off to write a particular book, anyway.

One way to supplement my savings while I am not working is salvage. By "salvage", I mean a polite term for dumpster diving. It's not a consistent form of income, but I am more than willing to give it a try.

The pictured book is the Art and Science of Dumpster Diving by John Hoffman. He also wrote Dumpster Diving: The Advanced Course. These books are out of print and getting harder to find. I had to order the former twice through Amazon before I finally got my grubby mits on a copy, but there is an ebook form of it available. I give both a huge recommendation and can go into detail if anyone is interested in reviews.

I have been a scavenger since college when my allowance wasn't quite enough to cover both bills and food. I have never before attempted to sell nor trade anything I have recovered. Turning forty this year, I decided to rent a small storage unit and return to this hobby.

I will begin giving a summaries of what I am finding in following posts. Hey, I don't like seeing a wall of text in an OP either. Summary: I am having way more fun diving than I ever did at any job.

What is the point of trying to make money if the only job i could get,pays less than 150$ a month (a very good job is no more than 600$ though)
Tired of this hell life i got memed into taking a course in order to get a diploma to then find a good job, but my family basically told me to fuck off and i can't pay it (will probably be homeless soon)
i could sell everything i have to buy a plane ticket, is there somewhere i could go? i don't want to be an illegal alien forever

Everyone always complains about not having any money and then talking about moving elsewhere? How do you people even go about the thought process on moving without being able to make money in the first place? I'm in a similar situation to you OP but there's no way in hell I could relocate without having a TON of money saved up let alone a stable income to ensure I don't end up on the streets and killed.

After seeing how cheap the blades for double edge razors are compared to the obscenely over-priced replacement blade cartridges, I'm interested in learning more about double edge razors.

It sounds like aside from being a fraction of the price, the blades even last longer since you can completely remove, clean and dry them, which is impossible with cartridges.

The problem: how difficult is it to shave with these things? Will a new user have a close shave at a fraction of the price, or a face full of blood-stained toilet paper squares? At this point, I'm forced to use the same dull blades that should have been trashed a long time ago, because I can't shell out the money for replacements.

tl;dr shaving for jews

I don't use a double edge, instead I use a straight razor with disposal blades but its atleast somewhat similar so here's some advice. Firstly don't rush, you'll only end up looking like leather face. Secondly use a foamy shaving cream, while its not needed, its handy for pulling hair away from the body for a better shave, plus it also is very easy to see whag you have left to shave. Thirdly don't be afraid of a nick, a nick will sting, but if you panic and cut yourself for real, it will hurt a hell of a lot more. Fourthly, light to no pressure on the blade, it may be surprising to learn but razor blades are sharp as ever loving fuck and don't need much pressure to slice through hair or skin, let them do the work. Good luck op

Modern Mom 19/11/07(Thu)16:55 No. 3351 ID: 0211ce

I started with Feathers and didn't have an issue. Also I just used warm water and shaving oil for a couple months. I'm not sure how much the foamy soap stuff helps me.

Modern Mom 19/11/15(Fri)10:03 No. 3357 ID: 85987e

What's the problem with using an electric shaver? I've been using a ~$100 for like 5 years and it still works. Unless you're getting disposable blades at five cents apiece, you're not matching that. Yeah, the shave isn't as close, but that doesn't matter these days. Most jobs don't give a fuck if you have a little five-o-clock-shadow; some don't even care if you have two days of stubble. And women find stubble more attractive anyway.

This is objectively the cheapest way to shave.

Let's talk about ways to make cash online, it can really help out and once you get efficient with it and have a good group then you're golden.

I won't lie, I'd like to find a person or two from this board to be in a new group. You wouldn't believe how fast and simple things get when you get everyone working together well and can make the money on nearly autopilot, depending on what method you are using. Also tips and resources are always good.

Is blogging even a way to really still make money online if you don't use social media?

I've found that going through a drive through with a broken credit card (bad chip) often gets me free food. You can't do it at the same places over and over again, but the companies assume that the fault is with their machine and they will give you the food.

I personally haven't had any luck with that where I'm at. Maybe others have been trying it before me at a large rate, I don't know.

I have a chill girl who buys me things and is a complete nymph. She's actually impossible to satisfy it's hilarious.

Give her one beer and she's humping my leg.

So that's how I save money, because it keeps me sane and saves me from spending money trying to catch other girls. Also she cooks a ton for me and buys me food out sometimes.

I gave up work in a warehouse, because they were moving further from where I live. The commute would be just ridiculous, and the expenses - double, if not tripple! Being a drone is not OK in my book.
So I have a choice now - mooch off of girlfriends parents I live with OR take a part time job, as a "sanitary technician" in a local police station.
I want to know your opinion, everything really. Until this day it never occurred to me, that I would also have to clean shitters (which I'm quite fine with, and proficient, also). So lets hear it! Any cleaners here, part time workers or both?

I don't know how you people even drone. It is terrifying to even watch. I've got an idea that maybe your folks will help you to save up a bit so to study online or something so to work your way up qualifications to Plus grade drone? Maybe more work but is better than being stationary.

No other options in your area? try and find another warehouse job or if there are any connections you made from your old job you could use.

My father, because oddly enough my father loves me. I am still a misunderstood schizoid nightmare either way. But if he were to pass away I would choose the big sleep. The world is harrowing enough as it is. Terrifying really. I lost much of my life because of other peoples crappy decisions. I don't want to see it from strangers. I know the depths of the rabbit hole. I have seen all I ever want online. I won't suffer homelessness as I am. Though in this place I have very specific white features so that most people and doctors simply don't believe me, no joke, and the mental healthcare system is so screwed up anyway that it is the only protection I have from THEM also. It's just too fucked to explain. The Mental Health system is a weird racial joke here. Viewed as "privlidge" from ghetto as fuck backwards doctors. I'm not brown enough to be "crazy" and therefore WRECKLESSLY medicated by doctors with political aims. Yep in this place to be brown and diagnosed as schizo is "Social Justice". It is too complicated to explain to people who don't live in this particular place. The rest of the problem is murderous police, AND citizens, and a shit political climate. Only my father stands in the way of hell or the road to the big sleep. It would wreck my father's life worse if I died than if I were sorta expensive. I don't want to be the next schizo beaten to death by the cops for NOTHING. To be calling out to my father to help me while they murder me for saying random words or something because the fucking clowns around there think that crazy people's ramblings are "confessions" and "guilt". I have to pretty much avoid brown people at all costs. I'll choose the big sleep if anything ever happens to my father. I will confirm his passing and then make a super special cold brew super special sleepy tea. Then big sleep. For people not in America it is more fucked up than you could possibly imagine.
