This is odd. The owner was actually about to microwave the doughnuts when the freeloader volunteered that he had no money on him. Why would he do that if he figured the guy was a freeloader?

He said he was just playing along waiting for the truth to come out. He expected the guy to say he had no money at the cash register. A shop owner can't go around demanding "show me the money" thus accusing someone of having no money, even if he is sure it is the case.

When I retire, Mr. Kung (if I retire), I'd like you to travel up here and we'd spend two weeks as amateur investigative journalists going around and intentionally doing stuff like this....and then writing about it. From a conservative point of view, of course. "How Easy is it to Get 'Free Stuff'?" Etc. I'll supply the grubby uniforms to make us look the part. You supply the delousing powder. I think we would eventually need it.

Well, I wouldn't cook anything before he pays up, at least in a place like that. That would solve the problem. That's the norm in fast food places and presumably coffeehouses.

With this gear all we would have to do, or not to do, is shower and shave for a few days. I know I would look the part very quickly.

Kolachis are already cooked. He just warms them up in the microwave.

Kolachis

Sounds like a pastry made from a small dog. 😀

And right on time, here is an article which confirms another discussion we have had at ST, fake beggars.

This has always been a concern about any form of panhandling. But it does seem to be an extreme case.
