They say that beggars can’t be choosers, but that’s not strictly true.

As with so many uses of the word “can’t,” it might more properly be replaced with the word “shouldn’t.”

Beggars SHOULDN’T be choosers, because when they are, they end up looking very silly, and then they get showcased on subreddits specifically designed to call them out. Like these people did.

Beggars shouldn’t be choosers. But they’re gonna anyway. Just try to make sure you’re not counted among their number.

Have you had a situation with a person like this?
