Recently I stopped feeling guilty about not giving her any coins after I spotted her smoking when she was on a break.
I didn’t realise quite how experienced she was at parking up and requesting money until the other day when I spotted her on the ground outside bakery. I heard the end of a conversation she was having with a stranger who had stopped. He was telling her he would buy her a cheesy roll.
‘Could ya get them to heat it up?’ She yelled after him as he headed into the bakery.
And in one small sentence she reiterated why I give my spare change to kids who busk.
