NYC Homeless Man Turns Down $100 From Software Programmer
If you’re looking for some inspiration and a good will story you have to check out the NYC homeless man who turned down $100 from a software programmer.
Patrick McConlogue walks passed homeless people everyday on his way to work to perform software programming for a startup business. McConlogue attention was caught by a particular homeless man who is always reading and writing.
Well, Leo turned the $100 down and took the second option of learning the coding world. The coding expert started a blog to tell the story and received criticism. But who cares, this homeless guy has a chance to learn for free and make a living for himself.
I am glad the homeless man didn’t take the $100. The saying is true, give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime. Do you think the offer from McConlogue was the correct or should he have given more? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
