A Honda dealership in Michigan is embroiled in a feud with a pair of pandhandlers after one of the men turned down a job offer at the car lot and reportedly said, "I make more than any of you."

According to a report by local media outlet WDIV, witnesses say the two men have been begging for money outside the dealership for more than a year.

At some point, management at the dealership approached one of the men and offered him a full-time job for $10 an hour. He apparently turned it down and the dealership responded by placing for drivers to see.

The sign reads, "Please do not give anything to this panhandler. We offered him a full-time job at $10 per hour. He said 'I make more than any of you,' and he did not want the job. Please donate to a more worthy cause."

That sign has now gone viral and many are applauding the dealership.

As for the panhandlers, they responded with their own signs, including one that read, 'You can't afford a one-bedroom apartment on $10 per hour.'

Police were eventually called and they were arrested on vagrancy charges.
