Frum Dating Theory advises:
If you decide to give money to a musician or performer in a subway station, and you find that you only have a 5 dollar bill on you, do NOT put the five in the collection box and remove four singles. Explaining to the drugged up musician that you actually first put in a five before you removed the four singles will do no good. This is especially true with rappers. If you put in a five, you leave it there!
Speaking of subway performers... I'll never forget the performer I saw in the subway late one night shortly after Princess Diana's death. He was playing guitar and singing the updated version of "Candle In The Wind" that Elton John had performed at her funeral. He had a very sweet sound and many of the people waiting had tears in their eyes, and were reaching into their pockets with the obvious intent of tipping him when he ended the song... at which point he proceeded to segue straight into "Springtime for Hitler" from "The Producers." I watched as they all took their hands out of their pockets and turned away. "They never like "Springtime for Hitler" he confided.
