Should I help a Homeless person by ...
OK so a question rather than a confession, but who knows it may change :)
I travel quite a lot (UK), and regularly spend a night at a budget friendly roadside rest area (travelodge, premier inn etc), the room booked for me is usually a double or occasionally twin room.
My question is would it be wrong to offer a homeless female (or indeed a male), something to eat, and then to come back to my room for the night to have a shower and a half decent nights sleep, without having to worry too much about who's walking about during the night. - granted its not that easy to switch off and they may worry about me during the night!
Bearing in mind the bed would be most likely a double, so a level of trust would be needed by both parties.
I would of course drop the person off where I 'picked them up' or in a neighbouring town if they prefer.
All i can say is that I can be trusted, and I genuinely want to help.
I have nothing against homeless guys, would just prefer to help a female out for a night like this as I feel (right or wrongly) that they would benefit more and usually pay more attention to hygiene so would appreciate a bath, hair wash and a change of underwear etc.
I would welcome your feedback, Thank you
