It was a long time ago, I be fine now (for now, never count yourself lucky till you're dead, and all that.)

Your post recalls for me, of all things, an installment of the old comic strip, Dondi.

The ever-young orphan is in the care of a ne'er-do-well uncle, IIRC, a con man who pretends to be wealthy. He shows Dondi that, while people won't give money to a shabby panhandler for some food, they will give it to a well-dressed man who claims to need it to feed the meter for his Rolls-Royce..
