Car Dealership's Sign Warning The Public About A Panhandler Goes Viral

 A Brighton, Michigan car lot decided they were tired of seeing a man in front of their property begging passersby for change, so they decided to do something about it. 
No, they didn't immediately call the police to have him removed, they instead offered him a job. But his response wasn't what they were expecting. 
 The picture, which is quickly making its way across social media, shows the panhandler asking for money holding a sign that reads "Anything Helps" next to a Honda dealership on Grand River Avenue which had just displayed its new sign that reads: 
Please do not give anything to this panhandler.
We offered him a full-time job at $10.00/HR. 
He said:
"I make more money than any of you" and did not want the job. 
Please donate to a more worthy cause. 
Morgan Holt told MLive.com that for two years she's seen the panhandler, along with another man at times, every day on her way to work for the past two years.
 Seemingly undeterred, the man appears to continue his routine in the picture below.
According to WNEM, "The sign has since been removed and the two people who were panhandling in front of the business were taken away by police, the dealership said."
Click below for a similar instance in Muscatine, Iowa, where business owner Mike Pothoff tells WQAD he offered two young panhandlers a job and they flatly refused. 
"I said, 'You're hired,' and they said, 'We're not from around here.'  I said, 'Well, you're here,' and then they just smirked and turned around," said Pothoff.
