Subject: Redistribution of Wealth

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read
“Vote Obama, I need the money.”… I laughed.
   

Once in the restaurant my server had on a “Obama 08” tie, again I laughed
as he had given away his political preference… just imagine the coincidence.
When the bill came I paid cash but 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 decided you could use the money more than him. The homeless guy was happy…
and I felt like a successful politician.
 At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized
the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn,
but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn
even though the recipient clearly needed money more than him.

 

 

I guess redistribution of wealth is easier to swallow in concept than in
practical application!
