Turns Out I’m a Tramp

menI thought I was a hobo but I won’t be a hobo until I have enough money to travel (or if I start hitching rides!)

According to Wikipedia:

A hobo is a migratory worker or homeless vagabond —especially one who is penniless. The term originated in the Western—probably Northwestern—United States around 1890Unlike “tramps“, who work only when they are forced to, and bums, who do not work at all, “hobos” are traveling workers.

I promoted this blog at a forum and a guy who checked out my site said “I can’t think of any reason why anyone would want to give you charity just so you can avoid having a job.”

First, it’s not actually charity and second, I have 10 jobs.  Geesh.  It’s not easy being a tramp.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    At least you aren’t a “bindlestiff” ( a hobo that preys on other hobos ).
    or a troll like that guy with the mouth.
    Re: the photo : people walking with “sandwich boards ” advertising something is still a thing , I see people here doing waving signs for a pizza company doing so , I did the same for big box store closings myself ( evidently I looked like a “down and out person , I got a couple of coffees free , surprisingly )
