RER Beggars in Paris

Jump to last reply

Just curious as to those who speak French, what exactly is the general sob "story" given by the beggars that go from train to train?

I just got back from my trip and I saw a few beggars doing this. 2 individuals on separate occasions, and then a woman with a dog.

I'm just interested in what their general "story" usually is because all 3 people I saw:

-started the introduction the same way
-had the same exact tone of voice

Thanks for any replies!
