Cardboard boxes do not make houses

Currently I've kindly been turned into a bum overnight, and surviving a town with no place to crash is both hard and filled with gas stations.

Any tips on how to survive as a hobo or bum? If you were one, just what would you do?


Don't eat the breakfest sandwiches at 7-11.

    befriend a hobo flea

    carry a table, silk tablecloth, silverware, fine china, crystal candle holders, and candles with you at all times

    all your meals must consist of a single bean or pea, split half and half with the flea

    Wear them as some type of necklace

    Be sure to mark your territory this is important! Even if it means using something other than pee to do it then so be it!

    Wear tons of clothes even it's 100c. outside you have to keep those layers on!

    A dumpster is your freind

    Instead of making a home out of the cardboard box, make a time machine.

    Then go back in time and alter the circumstances that led to you losing your place.

    I don't wanna kill anybody. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.

    If you are low on money, there is no good reason to spend it on internet, which you can get for free at a library.

    You obviously have not yet developed the appropriate scrounging mentality.

    Also, start begging.

    One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fires were burning,
    Down the track came a hobo hiking, and he said "Boys, I'm not turning."
    "I'm heading for a land that's far away beside the crystal fountains;"
    "So come with me, we'll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains."

    I have a job still, and meager ammounts of money but stored hours here, so hey what a time to use'm. ;D

    @Mad Iron: We'll make our own train, and ride it into the sunset, while singing theme songs to shows no one should know.

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains the jails are made of tin
    And you can walk right out again as soon as you are in
    There ain't no short handled shovels, no axes saws or picks
    I'm a goin to stay where you sleep all day
    Where they hung the jerk that invented work
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

    Man, that does not sound like a smart idea.

    Hey you should totally do what I already told you to do and what others are telling you now.

    I recommend cardboard boxes that have a waxy coating, they won't deteriorate as quickly as a regular one.
    And get a stray cat, so you two can be hobo buddies.

    And lastly, what chunk of cardboard you won't be using, turn into a sign and warn people about their ever impending doom. Bonus points for quotes from Revelations and Nostradamus.
