Windows 7: Brussels must have the RICHEST Beggars on the Planet -- !!!

Brussels must have the RICHEST Beggars on the Planet -- !!!

Hi all
I'm currently on contract in Brussels which I rather like --it's nothing like as boring as people say and it's a LOT LOT cheaper than Paris with probably just as good if not even better restaurants too.

However the other night I was really surprised -- a harmless old tramp near the Central Station (Gare Centrale) asked me for some money --not aggressive begging-- but just one of the harmless "Old Timers" you sometimes see in major capitals. I said I'm sorry I only have a VISA card and no actual Cash.

So this old tramp fished around in a dirty old Black plastic Garbage Sack and pulled out one of those old fashioned HAND operated CREDIT CARD machines !!!!!

I'd have given the guy 20 EUR for originality if I'd had the money --well if I see him again I'll give him the 20 EUR.

So here in Brussels beggars are accepting Credit Cards. !!!!!!

Anyway have a good weekend all.

Perhaps it is an EU requirement. "Give a receipt to everyone, for everything, everytime! Even you, Mr. Shambles!"
