BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — ‘Tis the season for honesty.
We don’t know his name or if the beard is real, but this Boca Beggar is shooting straight with the sign he proudly held at the intersection of Palmetto Park Road and Powerline earlier Saturday. He was, of course, standing on the west side of Powerline.
Begging is illegal in the City of Boca Raton.
In an area where Boca Beggars are constantly claiming to be dying of cancer (one has been holding the same sign for four years), unemployed parents (wearing brand new hightop sneakers), or Vietnam Vets (despite looking to be all of 25 years old), the refreshing honesty seemed to resonate with those driving by in Lexus ES350s, Mercedes, Audis and BMWs.
In an unscientific observation, we saw this man take in $10 in just under five minutes. That’s $120 an hour, or $960 a day. If he’s out for 50 weeks (taking two off to actually buy and enjoy the beer he’s seeking), this Boca Beggar could be taking in $240,000 a year.
Even beggars shine a little brighter in Boca.
