One of the local panhandlers that frequented the entrance to a grocery store near my house in Belgium offered to watch my bike for me while I was shopping. He's known to the store's staff, I wasn't too worried. I didn't lock my bike, taking him up on his offer.

In payment, I got him a nice cold bottle of beer. I never had to lock my bike there if he was around. Good arrangement. His attention was better than any lock I wanted to carry.
