That's much much better than, "you don't want what I can give you".

Even homeless people have cell phones, I would think one of three people in a car would.
I would also add that if they are in the neighborhood and needing a jump that means that they have been somewhere nearby when their car battery died. Wherever they had been I guess that no one had jumper cables, or that no one else had a car that could give them a ride somewhere...
There are so many other options, and knocking on a stranger's door at midnight should have to be a last resort option unless it's you that they are trying to jump.
