Redistributing the Wealth

October 24, 2008

I don’t normally forward emails.  I don’t normally post political things on my blog.  Sometimes though, somethings are too funny not to share.

I have NO CLUE who originally wrote this…it’s an email forward.

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’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 needed the money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application. OR IS IT REDISTRIBUTION OF SOMEONE ELSE’S WEALTH IS A GREAT IDEA?

I can’t stop laughing.  TOO FUNNY!
