Bartender Won’t Serve Homeless Man Who Has Money | WWYD | PORTLAND

the city of Portland is home to more
than 600,000 people but among them living on the streets and
in makeshift shelters thousands of men women and children who have no place of
the wrong to call home with so many homeless on the streets even open hearts can be tested and helping hands can begin to close we’re outside the Davis Street Tavern in
downtown Portland – hey you okay?
-yes but i’m hungry i’m gonna get you something to eat inside okay thank you -hey how are ya
-oh hi uhh I just have to get this guy some food -enjoy it okay?
-yes ma’am thank you you’re welcome okay you need to get the hell out of
here but she just gave you money I get some food yeah that’s not your money I’m sick of me homeless people all over
town there’s a shelter and get some free food you’re at a bar when a good samaritan
gives a homeless man twenty dollars for a bite to eat but as soon as that nice customer leaves
the bartender takes the money and tells the man to get out we’ll customers stick
up for the homeless man or where they allow him to be kicked out into the
street what would you do? hey you need to to leave huh you’re homeless stink you’re ruining the
meal for my real customers we begin rolling and right away this man notices
what’s going on -yeah enjoy okay?
-thank you
– you’re welcome have a good
day stay warm the second our good samaritan leaves our
bartender Tyler tells the homeless man David that he needs to do the same you need to get the hell out of here but she just gave me some money -i just want something to eat
-but it’s not your money okay? you’re welcome this is bad for my business business here for my other customers you need to leave homeless but i just need some food there’s plenty of shelters to gave you some food right down the street okay? do not come into my restaurant again i just need to get some water there’s a hose out back if you’d like
okay? and now one of their friends arrives this is not appropriate behavior
this is a public establishment I need you to leave we send David away so the bartender can talk to the group -guys I’m really sorry i’m trying to get..
-yeah i worked at a bar lately actually right next to this bar and oh yeah the surprises us not at all
yeah that was gonna get in the way we have to deal that we have to study for these people to get to her office what do you guys think I should do? I’d toss him out is he.. did not leave? nah i think i just have to go to the bathroom -i can’t believe it’s stressing that guy out so much
-dont worry about it just let him eat No! He’s disgusting… He smell like shit and he needs to get out of here wow! wow! you guys think that i should kick him out here right now? while one shakes his head yes
the others have no problem with David being there -Oh, yeah. We’re fine with it.
-Yeah, We’re fine with it. What should you do with the issues like this? I think we have different opinions
because I would have just let him eat you not so much yeah I think sometimes it makes other people uncomfortable and there’s uh the important to a great extent to make a lot of
services available for people so I think in towards the services is probably
one of the better things for him actually all right
no no no i’m a paying costumer she just gave me money this next customer watches as tyler
takes that twenty dollars and puts it in his own pocket -you should leave right now
-but she gave me the money sir this is not a soup kitchens but this is a restaurant okay? he appears to be by the way tyler is treating david sorry but she just gave me money and you have my money now ok that money is now my tip
for putting up with you okay? once he pockets the money and kicks out
the homeless man -our bartender apologizes to the customer
-really sorry about that they’re they’re all over the place i probably would have given him that money yeah she gave it to him yeah but I mean he’s just gonna use that
for drugs or whatever i probably would have gave it to him though time for us to talk to him I live in this neighborhood and I don’t give money to people on the street
because i know it may not go for food and it will go for drugs and the drug dealers are everywhere so I understand but that woman gave him
the money so i would have I would give it back back at the bar this couple faces the
same ethical dilemma it’s complicated thing because I see you point of view where if you allow that to happen then it might become a habit in the future but this time our bartender gives them
the choice about how to handle the money you think the money should go back to
him? you can give it to him but I can’t be the guy in my restaurant continuing to run a soup kitchen here vicious cycle, yeah. will give it back to him
and hopefully he’ll get food and not drugs I’ll go explain Yeah. Is that cool? so this kind customer brings the
money outside and talks to david I talked to that guy into letting you keep the money I gotta respect for him, maybe whatever, it’s his choice whether he wants to feed you or not so i think he would appreciate it if you would take it and order food somewhere else I really appreciate it good luck man no worries hi guys! how are you? hello! I have seen you before I am John Quiñones Hi! How are you? Nice to meet you How are you doin’? This is a TV show called what would you do you you know I think it’s acceptable for him to make the decision i just told her i was close to when he
took the money I was close to you know sayin’ let’s get out of here you know she didn’t seem like she was course giving him the twenty dollars so but I
see where the owner of the establishment have a hard decision to make we’re rolling one last time just yell get out, get out now! get… don’t come back can I just have the 20 dollars back? that she gave me please she gave it to me 20 dollars and you have it in your pocket once again our homeless
man gets thrown out of the bar but now watch what happens outside Hey man! What’s up? How you doing? All right. I was just in there he explains what’s going on he takes the 20 dollars and then he kicked me out Oh my god. Go tell him right now you’re call the police he said he’s calling the police think I should go back in there? Yeah. Tell him to call the police or you’re going to and that you want your money back and that was your money. You handed him the 20 dollar bill.. and he kept it? That’s illegal. That’s stealing. -Yeah
-Okay one of the guys decides to go in with
him for support I have a phone, I’ll go with you. all right. and now JJ percell talks to the bartender you can’t do that dude. he’s panhandling outside of my
restaurant and I can’t run a business with him it comes in here and he wont leave the restaurant he’s not
spending his own money but someone offered to buy him something
to eat right? -right
-okay, so you should give him his meal -we tell tyler to give back the money
-when she goes out here is your money out on the street we learned that these men
stepped in because they’ve been there in David’s shoes I’ve been out here on the streets before
i know it just like that people treating you just always have someone you know if you feel in your heart
that’s wrong you should definitely say something what made you do it I’ve been struggling in my life I’ve
been in his shoes are you homeless yourself yes sir how tough is it? -it’s extremely tough
-what would you say that all those people in that restaurant i must say.. put yourself in their shoes try to have
some compassion try to think about what the other person
might be going through what troubles they’ve had to face in their life with
obstacles they had to overcome the fact that they may have a mental health issue or an addiction keeping them from me that could be you that could be me sir it is we

  1. Makes me genuinely mad that nobody defended the fact that he deserved a meal. I’d rather them get a meal in a restaurant than shooting up drugs

  2. I am very surprised that half if this video had once stood up for him if this is many people, would ack, in reality, there could be fewer people that would stand up for him/her shame to the people who just look. I would have gotten that her out of there and bring him to a better one and even give him/her more money to use.

  3. I live in Kentucky…we are doing a thing here that I personally think all states should. We have local cafes all over the place that allow you to work for your meal if you do not have the money. You work 45 minutes to an hour for your meal.

  4. Only person that did good in my eyes is the dude in the last clip. Like I would've went off and told him to give him his money back and he's not going to spend a penny in that piece of shit. Theirs other restaurants in town

  5. That last homeless guy had me in tears
    That could be you, that could be me "Yes Sir, it is me" you can see that pain in his eyes

  6. The first guy: he smells like shit, toss him out.
    After cameras: I think better services would have been the more sensible option (talks formally)

  7. All I’m saying is if I was homeless I’d do drugs.. why would it bother the people if he got drugs? I mean wouldn’t u want to be high or drunk if I was sleeping on the cold wet scary streets!

  8. is it just me or is it always these phony salvation army, homeless shelter, on-duty officers who are supposed to protect people on the street always the cruelest to them? not all, of course not all people in these certain occupations but it's too often that these same people are exposed for mistreating and abusing the homeless and less fortunate. people who really need a chance and are just simply refused.

  9. if only people understood that the amount of homeless people who actually do drugs (and not the stereotype that all homeless people are worthless junkies who do every sort of drug) often fall into drugs to help deal with trauma and cope with their lives, they often do it for the first time on the street because they've got nothing else to live for. these people do not need your intolerance, your frustration, your disapproval. they need sympathy, rehabilitation, a chance. people think homeless people are just worthless, good for nothing, meaningless persons who don't actively contribute to society- yet there not given a chance to be treated with respect, to have a chance at a better life… it's sad how certain people complain about homeless people not doing anything about their lives yet refuse them jobs, money, shelter, really, it's terrible.

  10. The first guy was so horribble. His tone changed immediately when John (I'm sorry if I spelled his name wrong) came into the room.

  11. Fat guy says it makes people uncomfortable ,no you fat bastard,it makes u uncomfortable,he looks like he could do with a few months on the streets.

  12. Well, I would probably give homeless people needs instead of just giving them money, a lot of homeless people sometimes use the money others give them for bad things, so that's why I would just give buy the things myself.

  13. I started crying when I saw tears form in the eyes of the real homeless man at the end of the video 😔

    Think about what others been through, put yourselves in they're shoes. Guys this is America. Class doesn't define us, we are ALL equal! We all have the same rights ✌ 🇺🇸

  14. It all depends on the homeless person… some homeless people are mentally sick and skittish and smell of urine and poop and can literally makes the whole establishment stink something fierce where every body leaves… I've seen it happen…. if that's the case, the homeless person needs to go…. if he or she is civil like the actor in this skit and still smells but doesn't stink like urine and poop overwhelming the entire eating establishment, then absolutely serve them.

  15. this homeless guy could be any of us tomorrow, in Virginia if your 5 days late on your rent law enforcement removes you from the premises at gunpoint… How easy is it to be a few days late on your stupid rent?? Even worse, this homeless guy represents the entire middle class in a few years, you know the hundreds of Millions with their head up their butt…. pretending the 1% doesn't exist!! Meanwhile we have abandoned malls Etc cuz you know, we're sooo done with them… hundreds of thousands of abandoned properties in this country oh, God forbid we allow the homeless to make use of anything we abandon

  16. the first guy is disgusting HE literally makes me uncomfortable. how could anyone be so rude i’d like to see him in that position

  17. This saddens me ppl act so privileged and god could stop everything for those ppl they don’t know why ppl are homeless ppl are willing to look stupid he came in to eat apparently this hurts my heart for ppl

  18. Yeah I would have been so pissed at that bartender I would have made sure he didn’t leave and he got some damn water and food. That’s unacceptable. We’re all humans and no matter what the circumstances we all deserve to live (Unless they murdered someone). She gave him $20 to be nice and they just took it away from him?! Hell no

  19. "I'd toss him out"??? "He smells like (dick??shit??)"????? Really tho???,boy he looks fine tho!handsome af while you look a pig.

  20. i wouldn’t agree with kicking him out but where i work there’s tons of homeless people and 99.99% are drug addicts and there’s a freaking place right across the street that’s government funding and they give these people “methadone” which is essentially meth in a pill form and it’s just as strong or stronger than meth. needless to say i keep the door locked while i’m at work (by myself most of the day) and don’t answer the door for anyone except coworkers lol or if i know a client is needing to drop by

  21. ❤️ 8:14 Who are you?
    You are amazing who ever you are and I just wanna say your so inspiring to watch and hear your story, you made my day and I just fell in love with you 🤲 💚 🌱 🏠

  22. That first guy was so mean. “Pointing them to those services?” Those services shouldn’t even have to exist in the first place if people like you weren’t there to force them into those! If you are in a position to have one less person have to go there, then do it

  23. First guy trying to say,,we pay for such service and if we have to eat with roadside people then why we r at the restaurant..try to understand his point..

  24. First guy trying to say,,we pay for such service and if we have to eat with roadside people then why we r at the restaurant..try to understand his point..

  25. Where did the drug thing come from? He literally asked for food and passed the guy the money. How are there more clowns this video then the circus?

  26. It broke my heart to hear that guys story at 8:18. The pain in his eyes brought tears to mine. May God bless you with a plentiful future and that goes for all the homeless people in the world. Keep the faith, the tables can turn!

  27. Ppl with everything are so fkn ignorant. Absolutely no idea what its like to be homeless and live on th street. They wouldn’t last 5 minutes…

  28. The first fat guy was rude as hell u guys ar always thinking about they getting durgs but that ugly fat is wow

  29. All the people who said to kick the poor guy out are disgusting. They are acting like they are above them or something. He had money to pay for his food LET HIM EAT. And for goodness sakes don’t steal his money. Homeless people are people too and human decency is a thing!!!

  30. Luke 10:25-37 New International Version (NIV)

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan

    25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

    28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

    29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

    36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

    37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

    Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

  31. Ok who cares if he’s stinks let the poor guy in are you dum or something that’s rude really rude if you agree put a like

  32. I know the first guy is rude if I was the girl I will yell at the first boy and then call the cops on the dum first guy

  33. I am absolutely disgusted with how people are so rude and cruel. He obviously was at the restaurant to buy food not drugs, these people are real idiots. The man was basically stealing his money, kicking him out, and being a complete asshole. I really wish people would learn how to be nicer to people, and have kinder, accepting hearts. Because it truly breaks my heart seeing people being so cruel and unruly.. 😔💔

  34. In today's society a human being'value is determined by how much money there is in his bank account, the more he has, the more praised he's gonna be, the less he has the more ostracised he's gonna be.
    This video is just small glimpse of what's really going on in the real world.
