A teenager from Shangshui county in Henan Province who pretends to be disabled while begging on the streets in Zhengzhou, the capital city of Henan says he would rather beg for a living than get a job, ifeng.com reported on Wednesday.

The teenager, 17, dressed in dirty and ripped clothes and sitting next to a newspaper stand, said he left home six or seven years ago. "I only have a 70-year-old granny who was doing farm work. I don't want to go home as I don't have millions of dollars to bring home. How shameful it is!"

He pretended to be disabled by folding his left shank under his bottom. "I enjoy the freedom of begging and I don't want to work even if it would pay me 8,000 yuan ($1,262) a month. I can't bear the restraint," he said, but also added that he would not beg his whole life.

He said he earns over 150 yuan ($24) a day through begging.

It is much higher than national average salary(per day).

Yes, beggars earn easy money in cities. They use others' sympathy to make money.
