We help the homeless.

So I come back with a cup of coffee and a muffin, and the homeless guy has no clue he has just asked me for them not even 2 minutes ago. I try to convince him he wants it. He returns a blank stare.

Him: …..[stare]
Me: ……….[stare]
Him: ……………..[stare]
Me: …………………..[!! LIGHT BULB !!]

I bid him a good night and walk away to the end of the block. Turn 180 and walk up to him afresh.
“Hello. Good evening.  Just wondering… would you happen to like a cup of coffee?”
“Wow! Really? Thanks!!”
He is very excited for this completely unexpected gift.
