Car dealership tells drivers to not give panhandler money

A panhandler who situated himself in front of a Honda dealership in Michigan apparently was offered a job there, and he refused.

This prompted the dealership to put up a warning sign.

The man had been panhandling in front of the Honda dealership in Brighton, Fox-2 Detroit reported. When he was offered a job, he turned it down, as he makes better money than the $10 an hour that was offered.

Then, dealership workers put up a sign propped up in a vehicle’s hood.

“Please do not give anything to this panhandler. We offered him a full-time job at $10.00/hr. He said: ‘I make more than any of you’ and he did not want a job. Please donate to a more worthy cause,” it says.

The man apparently was arrested after on drunk and disorderly charges.

Dozens of photos of the sign popped up on social media, namely Reddit, on Wednesday.

Local Morgan Holt told that the panhandler was a regular in the area.
