Beg: v. frequently to urgently request a free subset(s) and the requesten’s goal frequently has a low probability of achievement

Humans who have nothing sometimes resort to begging as a way of surviving but their begging requestens are not frequently fulfilled.

Sometimes offspring beg for favors or toys. In very poor countries some orphans and handicapped adults who can’t work beg for food. In wealthy countries some humans beg for money to support a drug or alcohol habit and some beg as a way of life so they don’t have to work.

Begging should be a sign of desperation and helplessness needing immediate attention but the reality in civilized countries is that begging has frequently become a scam designed to prey on your sympathies and get money for free with minimum effort. Instead of true begging it is more accurately called panhandling.
