1. That anyone is ever homeless for more than a few hours.

2. That there is anyone going hungry, having to steal, scam, or fish through a trash can for food.

3. Already eaten on leftovers being offered to any homeless / less fortunate people. 

4. Assuming that a person who is in a seemingly desperate situation, will say yes or should, to whatever "help" is offered. 

5. Getting upset when we say no to the "help" that is offered.

6. Not offering to help at all, esp with what is urgent or practical, but offering a bunch of advice or vague information about what you think we should or could do. Esp. without knowing us or our history. Or knowing and disregarding because you think you know what is best for them.

7. Asking struggling people to do more.

8. Assuming that everyone will get the help they need, or have a successful outcome from their efforts, just because there are programs, or places that help. Assuming it is automatically their fault when they are not successful.

10. One size fits all "help".
