Can you hear me now? Good, can I have a quarter?

So Spooney and I are walking into a Burbank Starbucks for the Saturday-morning-errands-latte...

Alright, alright, I can't be original and anti-corporation all the time, can I?

Anyhoo, we see the ubiquitous Starbucks homeless guy sitting outside the door asking for change from the patrons.

He looks like an ordinary Starbucks homeless guy: dirty, shabby clothes, long greasy hair and beard.

But on the way out of the store, we see him talking on his cell phone!

Yes, apparently you can't bum change without a cell phone in LA.

And I thought, if he has a cell phone, it doesn't seem right to call him a bum anymore.

How about sympathy technician?

GKristiL: Let's compare:

1. Technical skills comparable.
2. English speaking skills comparable.
3. Hourly wage comparable.

Hmmm...why not?


YSCM: That's not a job title, exactly. And I prefer mobility-enabled.
