The economic crisis is not only focused on specific countries or areas. On the contrary, it is also increasingly common to find people in terrible situations due to a lack of shelter, food, clothing, and above all, the stability that is difficult to find.
Children, women, and the elderly are part of the vulnerable population that lives on the streets due to entirely different circumstances; however, it is a fact that without opportunities and support, they will continue to wander on their own.
Recently, a story went viral but for the wrong reasons, as Aldair Jesús Villela was surprised to witness an elderly man rejecting the money that people gave him at traffic lights.
It turns out that this elderly old man keeps asking for money, and although it is not a crime, his attitude is not the best since he does not receive any help. On the contrary, he almost demands that they give him more money and not, as usual, what the other person wants or has.
Through a TikTok shared on said network, the awkward moment was recorded and seen by millions. In the clip, you can see how the man approaches Aldair’s car, and is about to give him two pesos, but when he hands them over, the old man throws them back at him.

The driver innocently asks why he is throwing it at him but receives no answer. The users who came to see the video began to comment that it is not the first time he had done it. Moreover, they assured that the man only accepts more than 10 pesos.
The video already has more than 5 million views on TikTok and more than 659,000 “Likes”, but among the shared anecdotes, some even recounted the kind of fraud that this man is doing.
“I confirm he threw the coins in my face, since 2007 I have seen him there asking for between 800 to 1500 per day,” you can read in the video.
