I think we should all do this, at least 50% of the people would learn a good lesson.
Yesterday 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 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’ve decided he could
use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. 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
actual recipient deserved money more. I guess redistribution of wealth
is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.
