One man in Bellevue is sick of the panhandler at the side of the road down the street from his home. So he made a sign that says "He can get a job" and stands next to him on the side of the road. The panhandler, Chad Fox and his dog, ask for money at the intersection of Old Hickory Boulevard and Highway 100.
The one man fed up with it is Tyler Blair. “He's been given help, he's been given a truck, he's been given a place to live, he's been offered jobs multiple, multiple times and turns them all down,” said Blair, the man who made the sign. "I work very, very hard. I work very hard. Too hard to just see people hanging out asking for money for nothing.”
Fox, the panhandler, responds, “I know I don't want to do this for the rest of my life, of course.”
According to FOX 17, he says that next job must be something he wants to do for the rest of his life; he won't take a job that he doesn't like or will get bored with and end up quitting.
“I don't want to hop around from convenience store, to fast food, to a different job every six months,” Chad said.
Blair says as long as Fox keeps begging on the side of the road, he'll keep standing next to him with his own sign.
