I first saw this on Amanda's blog, http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/SurvivingTheTestosterone/612495/.
It is cute, but also true. Stop by her spot and comment.
Redistribution of wealth
Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign the read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.
Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed--just imagine the coincidence.
When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.
I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I have decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was very grateful.
At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was certainly grateful for the money he did not earn, and the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he worked for and rightly deserved.
I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept rather than in practical application.
